Fractures in children:

The bones of children and adults share many of the same risks for injury. Since they are still growing, a child's bones are also subject to a unique injury called a "growth plate" or "Epyphyseal plate" fracture. Growth plates are areas of cartilage located near the ends of bones and damage to these can interfere with the growth of the bone. There are also instances where the bone may fracture incompletely, which is known as "green stick fracture".
