- Difficulty moving in the area of the fracture
As with symptoms, treatment for a fracture will depend on a number of factors. In many cases, doctors treat fractures by realigning the bone into the correct position, then applying a cast or surgically inserting plates, pins, screws, or rods to immobilize the area. Because bones are often able to heal themselves, the goal of treatment is to support the natural healing process and prevent further injury. In cases of a severe fracture, the patient may need to undergo physical therapy to regain strength and range of motion.
