Dr. Luis Rodriguez, Primary Care Sports Medicine Physician with Miami Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Institute, says growth plate injuries can affect the growth process of a child, but it is not always the case and growth is not affected in most cases. He also explains there is growth arrest, which means the growth plate will close and not allow the bone to grow anymore.
