Broken Bones and Fracture Injuries
A fracture is a medical term that describes a condition where the continuity of the bone of the body is broken or cracked. Fractures can occur to any bone in the body. A clean fracture or break, called a closed fracture, is one that does not damage surrounding tissue or tear through the skin. A fracture that damages surrounding tissue or skin is called a compound or open fracture. Fractures or broken bones can cause: pain; swelling; bruising;, discolored skin; angulation (bone may be bent at an unusual angle); loss of ability to weight bear or move the affected area; the affected bone may cause a “grating” sensation; bleeding (in the case of an open fracture); nausea and dizziness.
Fractures or broken bone injuries can be the result of an impact injury caused by:
