On a personal note: when my then 5 year old daughter fractured her elbow =nothing visible showed up on the skin--but she cried in pain all night before we took her into urgent care! --oops. ...Read more

Going to the er will probably cost a lot more than going straight to an orthopedic surgeon on a scheduled basis. I doubt he or she will just tell you to go with the rice method, though that will probably be part of your care. ...Read more
