Pediatric Fracture

Healing Little Bones: Pediatric Fracture Care at Medace Clinic

As children explore and learn about the world, bumps and bruises are inevitable. However, sometimes a fall or blow can lead to a fracture, or broken bone. At Medace Clinic, we understand the unique needs of children with fractures and offer specialized care to ensure a smooth and speedy recovery.


Why are Pediatric Fractures Different?

  • A child’s bones are more flexible than an adult’s, making them less likely to break completely. Instead, they may bend or buckle, resulting in a “greenstick” or incomplete fracture. Additionally, children’s bones are still growing, so fractures require careful monitoring and treatment to avoid growth complications.

    Common Pediatric Fractures:

    • Arm fractures: These are the most frequent type of pediatric fracture, often occurring from falls or sports injuries.
    • Leg fractures: Similar to arm fractures, these can happen due to falls or sports activities.
    • Clavicle (collarbone) fractures: These are also common in children, often resulting from falls onto an outstretched arm.
    • Finger fractures: These can occur from getting fingers jammed during play or sports.
    • Growth plate fractures: These fractures involve the growing area of the bone and require special attention to ensure proper healing and avoid growth abnormalities.

Signs and Symptoms of a Fracture in a Child:

  • Pain: The most obvious symptom is pain at the injury site, which may worsen with movement.
  • Swelling: The area around the fracture may become swollen and tender.
  • Deformity: In some cases, the affected limb may appear deformed or bent at an unusual angle.
  • Difficulty using the limb: A child may be unable to bear weight on a fractured leg or have difficulty using a fractured arm.

Treatment Options for Pediatric Fractures at Medace Clinic:

  • Closed reduction and casting: In many cases, the doctor can manipulate the bones back into alignment (closed reduction) and then immobilize the area with a cast or splint to promote healing.
  • Splinting: Splints are sometimes used for less severe fractures or to provide temporary support before a cast is applied.
  • Surgery: In some cases, surgery may be necessary to realign the bones or insert pins, plates, or screws to hold them in place during healing, especially for complex fractures or those involving growth plates.
  • Pain management: We prioritize pain management throughout the healing process to ensure your child’s comfort.

What Sets Medace Clinic Apart for Pediatric Fracture Care?

  • Experienced and child-friendly team: Our doctors and nurses understand how to communicate effectively with children and create a positive and calming environment during treatment.
  • Quick and accurate diagnosis: We use advanced X-ray technology to diagnose fractures efficiently and minimize wait times.
  • Painless procedures: We utilize techniques and strategies to minimize discomfort during fracture reduction and casting.
  • Colorful and fun casts: We offer a variety of colorful and fun casts to make the experience more positive for children.
  • Parent education and support: We provide clear instructions on cast care and answer any questions you may have about your child’s recovery.

I had visited Medace Clinic in Kothanur for my Tennis Elbow issue in my right hand. I was recommended for Physiotherapy treatment. I underwent this treatment for 4 days in the clinic (daily visit for treatment) and was given few exercises to be done at home post that. I got a huge relief from this treatment. The Physiotherapist was very good. She had a good knowledge and was able to get to the exact pain and provided the treatment. My pain has reduced drastically and I am able to do the daily activities without any pain now. Will be joining back to gym as well in 4 to 5 days.

We consulted Dr. Geetika throughout my wife’s pregnancy. Without question, she is a gem of a person, soft spoken and very down to earth. The best thing about her is that you can message her with the slightest doubt on WhatsApp and she is available to respond. She will take the time to listen to you and provide you with the most effective advice to address your current situation and prevent future issues. She is very very easy to talk to. Never prescribed us any unnecessary tests or medicines. She guided us in detail at every step week after week, month after month. We are so happy and proud for having done this journey with her.
Dr. Noel Kumar at Medace Clinic is an exceptional doctor who truly cares about his patients. He has been treating my todler son for the past three months, he has recovered from his femur fracture completely and I have seen a remarkable improvement in his condition. His expertise in the field is very evident in the way he diagnosed, operated and provided post operative care. Dr. Noel takes the time to explain everything in detail and answer any questions we have. He is always available to address our concerns and provide us with the best possible care. The clinic is well-equipped and staffed by friendly professionals who go above and beyond to make us feel comfortable. I would highly recommend Dr. Noel and Medace Clinic to anyone looking for quality orthopedic care.
