Hi - my 4 year old son fell from a zip line about 6 feet off the ground and landed on his elbow . He refuses to bend it. We called our pediatrician and they said that if something was questionable they do not have the equipment in their office to do an x-ray and said to go to the emergency room instead. It seems to me this is not an emergency so I m a little shocked at that suggestion - perhaps it is because it is late in the day? Is it ok to wait until he can be seen by his pediatrician perhaps tomorrow?
