Children heal quickly but have a tendency to misbehave whilst having a broken bone, which can lead to a delay in repair. It is important to maintain a watchful eye. Fractures that occur near the growing points of bones need to be monitored by orthopaedic specialists. Definitely see an osteopath to encourage alignment to take the pressure off the opposite side of the body. Remedies can be used as for young adult fractures but do not administer a comfrey remedy to a child.
