1. What is a concussion and how do I know if my child has one?
I thought this question deserved a complete answer so here is some patient education from MD
2. What is Nursemaid’s Elbow? Are there any broken bones involved?
Nursemaid’s elbow is a dislocation of the radius (one of the two bones of the forearm) at
the elbow. It is caused by a sudden jerking motion (a sudden pulling) of
the forearm, such as when a parent or nanny jerks their child’s arm in a sudden
upward motion (as happens when a child is falling and the parent grabs for the
child. There are no broken bones and the radius can be easily moved back
into place by a physician.
It takes 6-8 weeks to for broken bones to heal.
