My 8 yr old daughter had a fracture of her growth plate and was casted for 4weeks.  The cast came off in June.  Lately she is having pain in her knee......  cheerleading practice is in full swing.  Is this normal?

Hi,

I sustained a growth plate injury to my right distal femoral epiphysis more than 30 years ago. Mine was called a Salter IV fracture, and required a number of additional surgical procedures to correct ensuing deformities. However, not every growth plate injury turns out to be this severe. You should be in touch with your orthopedic doc to talk this over.

Sorry I guess I wasn't specific .....  I was just excited to find this web site.  Anyway she had a slight fracture to the growth plate in her knee.  (the outside of the knee) She did have some PT.  The pain she is haveing now is on her "inner" part of the knee.  We do have an appointment to see her ortho.  but am just looking for any info to help support me.  Thanks!
