  • hello im grannymy 20mth old grandson broke is femur on 6/22/2010.I was told that he was playing soccer and kicked the ball and his leg landed under his body.I do not see that happen.please helpDue to the rapidly growing bone in young children, the bone ends do not need to be perfectly aligned. The bone will remodel over time to the point where it may not even be evident the bone had been injured. Most infants and toddlers will require spica casting for about 4 to 6 weeks to allow for adequate bone healing.
