There are many ways you can help children and their families get the care they need.
At Boston Children's Hospital, we know that the first step to treating your child is forming an accurate, timely diagnosis. To diagnose a stress fracture, your child’s Sports Medicine specialist will take a medical history and perform a physical exam on your child.
Your child’s doctor will also get x-rays to look for a fracture. But because children can have stress fractures and damage to their growth plates that can’t be seen on x-rays, the clinician may also use an MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) or CT scan and, rarely, a bone scan to get detailed images of the injury to determine if there’s a stress fracture.
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.”
