What are the different types of fractures?

Many people don’t know this, but there is actually a wide array of different types of fractures. Here are some of the most common:

  • Comminuted fractures — A comminuted fracture occurs when the broken bone shatters into at least three pieces.
  • Compound fractures — In some cases, a broken bone can tear through the surrounding skin. This is known as a “compound” or “open” fracture. If you’ve sustained a compound fracture, you should seek treatment at an emergency room as soon as possible.
  • Greenstick fractures — When a bone partially breaks on one side, but only bends on the other side, it’s referred to as a “greenstick fracture.” This type of fracture is more likely to occur in children since their bones tend to be more elastic.
  • Hairline fractures — Also known as “stress fractures,” hairline fractures are characterized by tiny cracks in a bone, often resulting from overuse or repetitive motion.
  • Pathologic fractures — Pathologic fractures occur as the result of underlying medical conditions that weaken the bones, such as osteoporosis, infections, and certain types of cancer.

What are the symptoms of a fracture?

The symptoms of a fracture will vary depending on the type and severity of the break, the location of the broken bone, and the age and general health of the patient. With that being said, some common symptoms of a fracture include:

  • Bruising
  • Deformity
  • Inability to move the affected bone
  • Pain
  • Swelling

How are fractures treated?

In general, bones are able to heal themselves naturally, so treatment involves creating an environment that will support this natural healing process. This often requires realigning the pieces of bone (a process known as “reduction”), then immobilizing the area by applying a cast or inserting plates, screws, rods, or pins. In some cases, once healing has occurred, physical therapy will be necessary to improve strength and mobility in the affected area.

I truly wish I could give them more than just 5 stars!

"I couldn’t have asked for better care for my son than from the staff at Tahoe Fracture and Orthopedic. From the receptionist all the way up to the surgeon, we were treated with the utmost respect, kindness, patience, and care. They were not only quick to get him in for an examination, but were amazingly quick to fit him into the schedule to have his injury treated asap!! Thanks to them, my son is now on the road to recovery. I truly wish I could give them more than just five stars!"

Thanks Doc!

"Dr. Mike Fry is a wonderful doctor and caring person. When I saw him for the first time, he held my hand and said, “I’m going to make you well”, and he did! I had back surgery 2.5 years ago and still doing great. Thanks Doc!"
