Fracture is a condition when the continuity of a bone is broken. The most common reason behind fracture is high Stress or impact of force on a bone. However, fractures can also develop from certain medical conditions which weaken the bones, like osteoporosis, brittle bone disease and also cancer. Fractures caused due to medical conditions are also known as pathological fractures. Fractures are different types like avulsion, hairline and comminuted fractures. Most of the human bones are strong and can withstand strong force or impacts. But, when that force becomes too much powerful, a fracture is caused.
The general symptoms of a fracture vary depending on the bone which is affected, the age of the patient and also the general health. However, the common symptoms include:
It is always recommended not to move a person who is having a fracture until a medical professional arrives at the spot. However, in case of emergency, the patient needs to be moved to a calm and quiet place.
In most of the cases, fractures are caused due to an accidental fall or an automobile accident. Also, with the growing age, people become more prone to weaker bones and also develop the greater risk of falling down. Children who are indulged in physical activities more than adults are also prone to fractures.
In most of the cases when a bone gets fractured, the broken bone is aligned properly and kept immobile which helps the bones to get joined together as one. Also, sometimes surgery is performed when the case is more complicated. Today, PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma therapy is extensively used to treat fractures, as PRP as the ability to induce faster growth of the tissues and therefore helps in quicker recovery from fractures.
