It is estimated that one in four children sustain an unintentional injury requiring medical attention each year. Caring for pediatric injuries requires special knowledge and expertise. Children and adults have important anatomical, physiological, and psychological differences that are important to consider when treating an injury. Children tend to have less body fat, more elastic connective tissue, and a growing skeleton. The force of an impact can be transmitted widely throughout the body, resulting in multiple injuries.
If your child suffers a traumatic injury, you want a medical provider who is experienced in pediatric care. For serious or life-threatening traumas, seek emergency medical attention. For traumatic injuries related to the bones, joints, muscles, and supporting structures such as broken bones, concussions, sports injuries, or motor vehicle accidents, The Center is pleased to offer our NOWcare walk-in injury clinic.
