Bone Safety 101

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Did you know that approximately half of all children will eventually suffer from a fracture or serious orthopaedic injury?

No surprise to Los Angeles Orthopaedic Hospital, a world leader in pediatric orthopaedic treatment, research and education for nearly a century. Each year, their doctors treat more than 13,000 children with fractures, half of these occurring during summer months and first part of the school year.

"Children grow rapidly and have open growth plates, which increases their potential for fractures," said Mauricio Silva, M.D., associate medical director for the Los Angeles Orthopaedic Hospital Medical Center, one of a team of specially trained pediatric orthopaedists available to treat children in need of fracture care. "To help avoid potential accidents and broken bones, parents and caregivers need to be responsible for the necessary safety precautions, maintenance and repair of any play equipment and involve their child in the process of learning the safety requirements of participating in a particular activity."

Los Angeles Orthopaedic Hospital pediatric orthopaedic experts offer these top five tips for keeping kids bones safe:

  1. Provide proper adult supervision at home; for example, use non-slip rugs, appropriate stools or ladders with non-skid legs, child safety locks on cupboard doors and drawers so children cannot climb up them.
  2. Use playground equipment with a protective soft surface surrounding it, along with close adult supervision.
  3. Keep children's bicycles in good working order and make sure they adhere to the rules of the road, such as using helmets, reflectors/light at dusk and hand signals.
  4. Use protective gear, including wrist guards and helmets, braces and kneepads during activities.
