My boy fell down from bed one day.He was not able to stretch his leg from knee..We were so tensed and ran right away to doctor.Doc examined him and just gave him paracetomol. Even after four to five days it was the same condition.He used to cry out of pain. Doc gave us ibuprofen for d kid. He advised us not to go for orthopedic since there isnt any swelling and stuff. Its harmful for babies if orthopedic suggests for x-ray.Inspite of that we took him and got the xray done only to find no fault.
I want to give a tip to mothers out there. Whenever your baby falls down...observe the following: 1. Check for noticeable swelling. 2.Check if your baby vomits. 3.Check if he/she falls unconscious.
If you dont find any..please dont worry...its not a fracture or any emergency.Taking them to the peadiatric will do..
