This fall is interrupted by the so-called mid growth spurt (not accepted by all observers) and the more important adolescent growth spurt.

Management of angulated fractures ● ● ● ● ● Assessment of the angulation Manipulation and immobilisation with plaster of Paris Open reduction and internal fixation as appropriate Early mobilisation once the fracture has healed Physiotherapy to rehabilitate the limb Buckle and greenstick fractures These types of fracture usually are of no great concern as they heal readily.

Overuse injuries in children are more likely to affect the skeleton than the soft tissues. It is important to “think bone,” so that problems that affect skeletal growth are not overlooked. The pathological change that occurs is a denaturing of the process of endochondral ossification, such that fragmentation of the bone occurs, followed by revascularisation and healing.
