Parents might not realize it, but thousands of children are hurt each year on the playground. Many injuries, especially shin fractures, occur on the slide. If your child is hurt on a slide, here’s what to watch for.

Childhood bone fractures are a common occurrence. Many of these fractures are overt and easily identified on an X-ray. However, some fractures that occur in children can be fairly subtle on an X-ray and in their physical appearance. That’s where pediatric expertise can be helpful in sorting things out.

Trampolines are fun and children get a good amount of exercise when using them. However, thousands of children every year are injured on trampolines. In 2009, 98,000 people were seen in emergency rooms with injuries sustained while on trampolines. While many of these injuries were bumps and bruises, others were fractured bones that required casting and injuries requiring hospitalization and surgery. Sadly, a small percentage of people sustained life-threatening and permanently life-altering injuries, including closed head injuries and spinal cord injuries. Both the American Academy of Pediatrics and the America Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons have discouraged the recreational use of trampolines. What do we know about how these injuries occur and can we avoid them?

About 75% of injuries happen when more than one child at a time is on the trampoline. The smallest children are most at risk, because:

Have you noticed that your child walks with his or her feet rotated inward instead of pointing straight ahead? This could be described as intoeing and is sometimes referred to as being “pigeon toed.”

As a parent, you may raise concerns with your child’s physician about how your child is walking or running, or perhaps a concern was raised by the child’s grandparents who may have known a child years ago who was treated with a brace or special shoes for a similar issue. Intoeing gait is a common reason for referral of your child to a pediatric orthopedic surgeon.

Intoeing stems from one of, or a combination of, three areas: the foot, the lower leg and the hip. Which area is contributing determines the likelihood that it will resolve over time and determines up until what age one may expect improvement.

The most frequent case of intoeing in infants and young toddlers arises ...

Dr. Kathleen Moen is an amazing provider who spent ample time with our family explaining everything in great detail and helping us feel more comfortable and knowledgeable about the health issue with our daughter.

Dr. Moen is a great orthopedist who knows how to deal with teens. (Our case).

Dr. Moen is AWESOME!

I would prefer written & a description of at-home care. Specific instructions about how to care for the injury and what activities to avoid would be helpful. Also specific written instructions about how to care for a cast would be helpful.

Dr. Moen took a lot of time with [...] to answer his questions & concerns. We are pleased with our care.

We love Dr. Moen - when [...] fell and broke her leg and we were taken to the ER we requested to have her be our doctor (due to previous interactions with her). They informed us in the ER we couldn't request a doctor we had to have who was on call - to our joy she was the doctor on call! She is fabulous and does a great job of explaining things to kids and adults - she clearly cares about everyone she sees.
