Your child’s doctor will want to know all about his sports history:

•   how many sports he plays each year
•   how many leagues per sport and
•   how often he throws on a weekly basis.

The doctor will examine the elbow to see how well it moves around, where the pain is and whether there is swelling. An X-ray, which will show any changes that might have occurred where the cartilage meets the bone, and it will also show any damage to the growth plate.
Boston Children’s is so much more than a hospital—it’s a community of researchers, clinicians, administrators, support staff, innovators, teachers, patients and families, all working together to make the impossible possible. ”
