Fracture Care

A fracture is when a bone is broken, which can occur in different ways such as cracking, breaking partially, or breaking completely into multiple pieces. Bones can bend or give to some extent when a force is applied, but if the force is too great, the bone will break just like a plastic ruler would when bent too far.

The severity of a fracture depends on the force that caused it. A bone may crack if the breaking point is slightly exceeded, or it may shatter if the force is extreme, like in a car crash or fall. An open fracture is when the broken bone fragments stick out through the skin or if a wound reaches down to the broken bone, which is particularly serious as it can lead to infection in both the wound and the bone.

There are various types of fractures, including stable fractures where the broken ends of the bone align and are minimally displaced, open fractures where the bone pierces the skin or causes a visible wound, transverse fractures with a horizontal fracture line, oblique fractures with an angled pattern, and comminuted fractures where the bone shatters into three or more pieces.
