What are Fractures?
A fracture can range from minor hairlines to severe breaks of any bone in the body. Fractures are usually but not always a result of an injury.
The symptoms of a fracture are:
- Bone protruding from the skin (in an open fracture)
- Deformity of the injured area (if a limb)
- Loss of function in the injured area
- Pain in the injured area
- Swelling or bruising in the injured area
