Have you ever fallen over and gotten a really sharp pain maybe in your arm or your leg? Did you think your bone was broken? It's true, we can break our bones. Broken bones are known as fractures. Most of the time, children break their bones in their arms or their wrists when they fall. Children are more likely to break a bone because their bones are not yet fully developed and therefore, they're fragile. They are not as strong. If you think you've broken a bone, you need to seek attention from a medical professional like a doctor. They can give you an X-ray to check if your bone is actually broken. Most broken bones heal on their own. You need to have them immobilized so that they can't move in a cast or splint. A cast or splint usually stays on between three weeks and three months and when it's removed, your bone should be fully healed.
Kids earn more screen time by answering fun educational questions.
