Most breaks or fractures occur in a bone. Open or compound fractures occur if the bone punctures the skin. Car accidents, along with sports injuries or falls, are the main causes of fractures. However, fractures too can be a result of osteoporosis.
Symptoms of a fracture are
- Out-of-place or non-aligned joint
- Swelling, bruising or bleeding
- Intense pain
- Numbness and tingling
- Limited mobility or inability to move a limb
Treatment can range from a cast or splint to surgery to place a screw, rod or plate.
