Signs and Symptoms
 

Contact your child's doctor if you notice any of the following:

  • An arm or leg is crooked, bent or twisted in an unusual way (called a visible deformity).
  • Your child cannot move a joint or play in the next few days after an injury.
  • There is pain and lots of swelling near or around a joint.
  • Your child has pain that doesn't get better after holding ice on the area or giving an over-the-counter pain-reliever (such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen).
  • The pain gets worse with time, not better.
  • Your child wakes up from sleep with pain, especially for two or more nights in a row.
