General Fracture Information
A fracture is a break or crack in a bone. Fractures are common; most people have at least one broken bone in their lifetime.

There are many different types of fractures, but the four most common types are:
Closed or Simple Fracture is one that keeps the skin over the break intact.
Open or Compound Fracture is one that occurs if the bone breaks through the skin.
Complete Fracture is a break that causes the bone to break into two or more parts.
Incomplete Fracture is a crack that doesn’t break all of the way through the bone.


The severity of a fracture depends on where it is in the body and how it affects the tissue surrounding it. Recuperation time depends on the severity of the fracture and the age of the patient. Fractures in children can heal in a few weeks; breaks in the elderly can take months to heal.

Possible Causes of Fracture
Fractures occur when physical pressure on the bone is stronger than the bone itself. Fractures are seen most commonly in the elderly and children. Falls account for more that 85 percent of all fractures in people older than 65. Fractures can also occur from trauma, such as an auto accident. Osteoporosis is the source of fractures in older women.

Possible Symptoms of Fracture
A fracture can cause extreme pain, blood under the skin, a protruding bone and tingling or paralysis below the break. In the result of a major fracture in an arm or leg, the pulse below the break can be lost. Broken arms, fingers and legs often appear bent or deformed. Fractures are diagnosed by a physician using X-ray or CT scan.

Possible Lifestyle Changes for Fracture
Fractures can be prevented by always wearing a seatbelt and always using protective equipment when participating in sports. Always keep steps clear of items that could cause a person to trip or fall. Use non-slippery floor coverings and make sure there is enough light to see obstacles in pathways. Engage in exercise to enhance balance and strength. Anyone who experiences pain after a fall should see a doctor for an X-ray.
