Fractures

Wrist buckle fractures are among the most common injuries in children. Until recently, the North American practice preference was to immobilize these injuries with casts. CHEO researchers have found, however, that children treated with a removable splint had better physical functioning, had fewer difficulties with activities, returned to sports sooner, and suffered no greater pain than those treated with casts.
