Every bone in the human body is susceptible to a fracture. Strong and resilient, our bones can withstand most significant forces without injury. However, if the pressure applied to a bone is too strong or the bone is weak in health, a crack in the bone may occur. Simple or closed fractures include cases where a bone breaks but does not damage the tissue or skin surrounding the break. Higher injuries have a higher risk of complication and are considered complex fractures, which require specialized treatment.

Symptoms of a broken bone or fracture include:

  • Pain

  • Swelling

  • Bruising

  • Discolored skin surrounding the affected area

  • Angulation or the area may be bent at an obscure angle

  • Inability to apply weight

  • Inability to move the affected bone or body part

  • Pelvic Fractures

  • High impact motor vehicle accidents.
