The various types of fractures are partial fractures, complete fractures, stress fractures, displaced fractures, and closed or open fractures.
Fractures most commonly happen due to falls, injury, or direct hits to the body. The risk factors include alcohol, diabetes, smoking, or chronic disorders that may worsen your condition.
Treating the fracture aids in the healing process and protects the injured area from infection and blood clots.
One must not try to realign the bone as the doctor will treat the same. You must stop the bleeding with a clean piece of cloth and apply ice packs to prevent swelling.
