In brief: Generally, yes

However, It depends on the bone and the location of the fracture.
Long bone fractures have better outcomes after osteotomy (rebreak and realignment) than fractures that extend into joint. At 6 years, even at your young age, if you had a fracture into a joint that healed irregularly, the joint may already have significant wear and tear (degenerative arthritis). See an orthopedic surgeon.
