Fractures

Broken bones, also known as fractures, are common among both children and adults. Most fractures occur as a result of trauma such as sports injuries, falls, or vehicle accidents. Some conditions such as osteoporosis, the weakening of the bones as we age, can make you more prone to fracturing a bone.

A fracture typically refers to a break in a bone due to high force or impact. There are many types of fractures that can result depending on the force of trauma and how the bone breaks. This includes closed, open, displaced, stress, spiral, oblique, avulsion, and many more.
