Orthopaedic concerns for children are unique, due to growing and developing bones, muscles, joints and nerves. It’s no wonder that compared to an adult’s body, a child’s body responds differently to orthopaedic treatments; for both musculoskeletal abnormalities and trauma. What’s more, younger patients respond differently on an emotional level too.
