Bone fracture

Learn about the most effective treatments and recovery tips for bone fractures. Discover ways to speed up healing and regain strength for a quick and successful recovery.
Here we see the types of bone fractures, including traverse, linear, oblique (displaced and nondisplaced), spiral, greenstick, and comminuted. Displaced means the fracture is no longer in the same straight "line" as you can see in the image. Nondisplaced means the fracture stays within the straight "line" of the bone. A greenstick fracture occurs in young, soft bone (like in infancy/childhood) when the bone bends and breaks. (Image obtained from Google).
