Conditions

A fracture is commonly referred to as a broken bone. Fractures are common; the average person has two during a lifetime. They occur when the physical force exerted on the bone is stronger than the bone itself. Your risk of fracture depends, in part, on your age. Broken bones are very common in childhood, though children's fractures are generally less complicated than fractures in adults. Older people, whose bones are more brittle, are more likely to suffer fractures from falls that would not affect younger people.

Fractures can be classified into five different kinds:

Greenstick Fracture: Where the bone is bent due to an external force, prevalent among children.

Transverse Fracture: A Fracture perpendicular to the bone.

Oblique Fracture: A Fracture oblique to the bone.

Comminuted Fracture: A Fracture where the bone has been split into multiple pieces.

Impacted Fracture: A Fracture where the fracture points are compressed together.

Compound Fracture: A Fracture where the bone is protruding from the body.
