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.
We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
