Fractures (broken bones) are relatively common, but they can be debilitating, and can sometimes require ongoing rehabilitation to heal properly.
Types of fractures
There are a number of different types of fractures but they generally fall into the following categories:
- Compound or Open Fracture: when the broken bone penetrates the skin.
- Closed Fracture: the broken bone does not penetrate the skin.
- Displaced Fracture: The bone breaks in two or more places, and then shifts so that the parts of the bones are no longer aligned.
- Non-displaced Fracture: The bone has cracked or broken but hasn’t shifted, so the parts are still aligned.
Focus on your recovery
Fractures can happen in many different circumstances but most often occur in car accidents or slip and fall mishaps. Children will usually heal quickly but the rehabilitation process becomes longer as we age. Depending on the severity of the fractures, complications can develop, so early medical attention is key.
