Use warm water and soap to gently wash the skin and cream to moisturize it. </p> <h3>Exercise makes the arm stronger</h3> <p>When the cast is off, your child can start moving the forearm. At first, the wrist and elbow may be stiff but movement will get better with time and activity. </p> <p>Your child's arm may be smaller and feel weaker than the other arm. While the arm is in a cast, the muscles get thin from not being used. The muscles will get bigger and stronger as your child goes back to normal activities. </p> <h3>Avoid contact sports</h3> <p>Your child should avoid high-impact, contact sports for four to six weeks after taking off the cast. Your child will gradually gain confidence in the arm and will return to regular activities. </p> <p>If you have any concerns, contact your family doctor or the advanced practice nurse (APN) at the fracture clinic.</p><h2>Your child will need a cast</h2> <p>For the bone to heal, your child will need a cast and may also need a sling.

At this appointment, your child will have X-rays to make sure the position of the bones has not changed. </p> <p>Write the date and time of the first appointment here:</p> <p>Two weeks after the injury, bring your child back for another X-ray.</p> <p>Write the date and time of the second appointment here:</p> <p>Write the name of the doctor or nurse at the fracture clinic here:</p> <p>Your child's cast will not be changed unless it is absolutely necessary.</p> <h3>Removing the cast at the fracture clinic</h3> <p>Your child will need another appointment after three to four weeks, meaning six to eight weeks after the original injury.
