Some wrist bones too! ...Read more

Radiographs are necessary to determine the strength of the bone following injury. ...Read more

Kids tend to heal very quickly. The so-called "hairline" fracture describes a fracture that is only minimally displaced and as such is in a good position and typically has good remaining blood supply.
Additionally, the area of the wrist (if this represents a distal radius fracture) is typically very well vascularized and with the type of bone that heals quite quickly.
Good luck! ...Read more

Good luck. ...Read more
