My son fell, his arm is hurting him some, it is not swollen or bruised, but he doesn't want to use it, broken?

hey mom, take your boy to the doctor or emergency room, the time you spend here is not helping his arm, ............

no broken bones hurt very very much
could be a green stick fracture

i would take him to the doctor either way ...my leg wasnt broken but i developed a serious blood clot in it. so to be on the safe side get it check you'll be saving your self a whole mess of trouble in the long run.

See a doctor who will probably have it Xrayed.

yes and severely infected and probably will fall off.

ok. firstly, a fracture and a break mean the same thing!! a break is a fracture, a fracture is a break. And yes there is different degrees of fractures. With kids it is hard to truly evaluate an injury and they have difficulty expressing how they really feel. THe best way to evaluate an injury in a child is to infact observe if they are using it or not. Typically children want attention so they complain about a minor injury- but when it comes to play time they are fine. So a sign that your child is not using his arm may be an indicator that it really is injured. Does he use it when you're not around- when he is playing etc? And provding you have health insurance better safe then sorry no? Best of luck.
note: unless you are a doctor it is never ok to relocate or reduct a dislocation. that dislocated body part could also be a fracture. also if not done correctly you can further damage surrounding tissues. some dislocations can become quite serious and cut off blood supply. Leave this to the professionals.

it could just be fractured...get it checked out just in case... keep it up and elevated...dn't let him try to use it til' you get it checked out...keep it clean!!!even if you can't see a cut it doesn't mean that they're isn't a microscopic scratch that can't get infected..it can!! hope this helps...

It might be sprained, but really dont think it would be broken, you would know believe me, he would be screaming, you should really take him to the dr though to get checked out, it COULD be a SMALL fracture or so. But i would take him to the dr, for sure

If it is too sore for him to use, then he needs to have it looked at. Generally if a kid breaks a bone, you will know right away when you look at them. They will have this sick, pale look to them. Keep in mind he could also have dislocated his elbow, which will make you not want to move it. While it is safe to put it back in place yourself if you know how, in this case, since you don't know for sure what's going on, take him to the doc to be checked out. Good luck!

edit: I have a son that has dislocated his elbow on several occasions. My doctor told me it would be fine to take care of it myself. No need to run to the hospital every time it happens. For children that are prone to this happening, it is not so unusual for the doctor to instruct the parents on the proper way to put it back in place.
