Fractures: A Closer Look

Fractures are broken bones. In older patients, fractures are often the result of a fall, either onto an outstretched hand or directly onto the injured body part. In younger patients, fractures are often caused by a high energy injury, such as a motor vehicle accident or contact sports injury. Fractures often cause pain, swelling, and bruising at the break site.
