A big part of learning about pediatrics is understanding different musculoskeletal disorders in children. Rather than going through each of these using the full Straight A Nursing LATTE method, I’ve provided a concise summary of a wide range of conditions:

  • Soft tissue injuries and fractures
  • Developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH)
  • Skeletal limb deficiencies
  • Osteogenesis imperfecta
  • Legg-Calve-Perthes
  • Slipped capital femoral epiphysis
  • Spinal curvature disorders
  • Juvenile idiopathic arthritis
  • Achondroplasia
  • Osteochondroma and osteosarcoma
  • And more!

You can read this information and view references in the articles “Pediatric Soft Tissue Injuries and Fractures” and “Musculoskeletal Disorders in Children“.
