In brief: Splint or cast

Treatment for a buckle fracture is dependent on age, activity level and comfort level.
Younger children tend to be treated in a cast. Older children can be treated in a splint. A true "buckle" fracture should not require manipulation or surgery.

In brief: Cast or splint

For the most part, buckle fractures are minimally displaced fractures that can be treated conservatively (e.
g. Non-surgically). Casting or splinting is the usual approach for these injuries.
