Brendan Williams, MD, attending pediatric orthopaedic surgeon, Sports Medicine and Performance Center, Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, discusses: physical exam findings that raise suspicion for fractures; the Ottowa Ankle Rules; clavicle fractures in older children (not newborns); how skeletal maturity changes fracture management decisions; pain management and immobilization guidance for sprains; when to send patients who are still in pain for follow-up evaluation or additional imaging; injury prevention advice to share with patients and families; when to send patients straight to the emergency room; and more.
