My son broke his arm just above the wrist; both bones were broken. It was set with a pin. It healed with a 25 degree angle. The arm has a 25 degree angle just above the wrist and he can't put his hand flat and has limited rotation. What should I do?

My son broke his arm just above the wrist; both bones were broken. It was set with a pin. It healed with a 25 degree angle. The arm has a 25 degree angle just above the wrist and he can't put his hand flat and has limited rotation. What should I do?

As: As the other 2 physicians have noted, age is the most important factor. In a growing child, many deformities self-correct. The more growth left, the more it can correct. Most growth in the forearm occurs near the wrist, so we can accept more angulation there than elsewhere.

As a child gets older, we can accept less and less deformity and we treat him/her more like an adult. If there is unacceptable deformity and loss of function, we would consider additional treatment. Sometimes we do have to wait for some "consolidation"--additional strength at the fracture site--before starting another treatment.

Also, stiffness (loss of joint motion) is very rare in younger children, but can occur as they get older. Even a severe injury in a young child rarely needs therapy. In older children, some injuries will be severe enough to limit motion.

If you don't feel the treating physician/surgeon is providing adequate answers, get a second opinion. ...Read more
