Healing A Broken Arm
When the limb [arm] of a young child is broken, simple, radial or spiral, how long should it usually in a cast?
Your question can be answered by the orthopedic surgeon who is treating the child. The time depends on the type of fracture, the child's age and an individual's healing.
