COMMON BONE FRACTURES
There are many kinds of bone fractures that can occur from common injuries. The most known types consist of:
*Oblique fracture – This type of fracture has an angled pattern.
*Transverse fracture – This fracture results in a horizontal fracture line.
*Comminuted fracture – When the bone shatters into three or more pieces.
*Open, compound fracture – This type of fracture occurs when the skin is pierced by the bone, and the bone may be visible in the wound.
*Stable fracture – When the ends of the broken bone line up and are not out of place.
Broken bones or fractures can be very painful and require less movement to the injured area. If you fear that you may have broken or fractured a bone, symptoms will include:
*Intense pain when moving the injured area
*Tenderness or swelling near or on the injured area
*A visual deformity (or puncture) in the injured area or if your limb looks out of place
