Nursemaid’s Elbow is the common name for a slight dislocation of the radius from a small child’s elbow. It is commonly caused by pulling on a child’s outstretched arm (like when daddy’s hold their children by the hand and swing them around). Today was Amie’s second experience with this injury. Unfortunately, this time it also caused some ligament stretching and her arm hurts a whole heap. She’s in a sling for about week.
Amie is one unhappy camper.
