Toddler's and hobblers

Paeds Morsels has come up with another timely reminder that Toddler's #s are often sidelined with the dreaded "Strain" phrase.

Things too look out for in this great rundown include:

  • Up to 43% of them have normal films
  • Pain on dorsiflexion is a sensitive sign
  • Cast it if in doubt and all other possibilities excluded
  • Don't forget other causes of a limping child
  • Kids' bones are more fragile than their ligaments

So treat 'em good and treat 'em right!
