A fracture is a break in a bone caused by injury or trauma. Fractures can range from simple cracks to complete breaks and can occur in any bone in the body. Symptoms of a fracture include pain, swelling, and difficulty moving the affected limb or joint.
Fractures are typically diagnosed through a physical examination, X-rays, or other imaging tests. Treatment options vary depending on the type and location of the fracture but can include immobilization with a cast or brace, surgery to align the broken bone, or physical therapy to help improve strength and range of motion.
