Musculoskeletal injuries and fractures - Sometimes, when children have rapid growth spurts, their bones grow but are not as dense, putting them at risk of being easily fractured during every day activities. Treating these type of injuries is mostly implementing a diet with increased calcium and vitamin D, along with physical therapy to help make the muscles around the growing bone stronger. Also, injuries from sports make up a large part of the fractures during childhood. Rehabilitation after fracture corrections is crucial to helping the child heal faster.
