Broken bones, or fractures, are among the most common orthopedic injuries. There’s never a convenient time for a broken bone, but our orthopedic specialists are here to help you get back to your normal activities as quickly as possible.

What are Fractures?

Fractures can happen to any bone in the body but most commonly occur in the arms and legs. Many times, fractures happen because of sports-related injuries, car accidents, and falls. Low bone density and osteoporosis can put people at higher risk for fractures.

What are the Symptoms of a Fracture?

Symptoms of fractures vary depending on the type and location of the injury. Common symptoms include difficulty walking or putting weight on an injured arm, hand or wrist, numbness, swelling or bruising near the injured area, and difficulty moving the injured body part.

How are Fractures Diagnosed?

Most fractures can be diagnosed with X-ray imaging. In some cases, your health care provider may need to use magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or computed tomography (CT) scan to take a closer look at the damage to your bones, cartilage and ligaments.
