A fracture is a break or a crack in a bone that occurs due to many reasons. While many fractures are caused due to the results of high impact or force that creates a separation of the bone continuity, but it also occurs due to a medical condition or disease such as bone with low density (osteoporosis), bone tumor or cancer (osteogenesis imperfecta).

Fractures are further divided into different types, which include as follows:

  • Stress Fracture
  • Simple (single line fracture)
  • Comminuted (bone breaks into several pieces)
  • Closed (skin intact)
  • Compound Fracture (bone penetrates through the skin)
  • Non displaced (bones aligned)
  • Displaced Fracture (bones not aligned)
  • Compression Fracture (weakening of a bone in elderly people)
  • Greenstick Fracture (bone bends, but doesn't break completely)

The bone fracture causes swelling, pain, deformity and numbness, causing more trauma and sometimes brushing on the affected areas. With highly qualified professionals, diagnosis for the fracture is easy and treatment requires precise care.

However, the goal of the treatment is to repair the dislocated bone by promoting bone healing process and restore to normal functioning of immobilize bone. We provide emergency fracture care when the case is more severe enough and immediate surgical intervention is required.

Best Fracture Care

Fracture care is divided into non-operative and operative procedures that help in bringing back your fracture bone to mobility. Different techniques are required for different types of fractures. We usually follow conservative treatment methods that require minimal pain or without operating the affected area. Moderate fractures may require casting, traction, splints, or braces along with the pain medication. For more severe fractures, surgical treatment is considered for making incisions or cut to place rods and screws by making a correct alignment.
