Broken Bone Injury

Recognizing Different Types of Broken Bone Injuries

Broken bones are common injuries in both children and adults. The term “broken” refers to several different types of injuries:

1. A hairline fracture, also called a stress fracture, usually caused by repeated stress;
2. A pathological fracture, caused by weakness in the bones; or
3. An impact fracture, caused by a sudden jolting event. Impact fractures can be further classified as either a greenstick fracture, in which a bone is cracked but not completely broken, or a complete fracture, when a bone is split into two parts.

  • If the bone is broken in only one place it’s called a single fracture, but if there are multiple breaks or if the bone is crushed, it’s called a comminuted fracture. 
  • A bowing fracture is when bone bends but doesn’t break. Bowing fractures are common in children but non-existent in adults. 
  • A compound fracture occurs when a bone breaks and pierces through the skin. This is also called an open fracture.

Our Personal Approach

Most courses of treatment recommended by doctors involve a cast to immobilize the bone for a significant period of time while it heals. Depending on the severity of the injury, a doctor may recommend surgery to implant screws, plates, or rods to repair broken bones. Regardless of how successful a surgery might be, a patient may suffer from permanent discomfort and physical limitations as a result of the injury. The bones most commonly broken in the human body are the clavicle (collar bone), arm, wrist, hip, and ankle.
