Common Pediatric Orthopedic Conditions
At North Carolina Orthopaedic Clinic, we treat a wide range of orthopedic conditions. Some of the ones we most commonly see among our pediatric patients include:
- Scoliosis – Scoliosis, which is characterized by a sideways curve in the spine, is particularly common among children. In fact, according to the American Association of Neurological Surgeons, scoliosis affects approximately 6–9 million Americans, with the primary age of onset being 10–15 years old.
- Fractures, sprains, and strains – It’s no secret that kids have a seemingly endless supply of energy. And while running around and actively playing is certainly healthy, it can also make children more prone to injuries. Our orthopedists can diagnose and treat fractures (broken bones), sprains (stretched or torn ligaments), and strains (stretched or torn muscles or tendons) in children.
- ACL tears – Another injury common among children—especially those who participate in sports—is a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL). This ligament, which is located within the knee joint, helps stabilize the knee and allows it to move it back and forth.
