Types of Bone Fractures
Depending on the location of an injury and the severity of a break, a bone fracture can be a relatively minor injury or a serious, potentially life-altering injury. Fractures to the vertebrae and skull are potentially very serious, as there is this always the possibility of damage to the brain or spinal cord with these types of injuries. Some common fractures are:
Open Fracture: A break that causes bone that goes through the skin.
Closed Fracture: A break that does not cause the bone to go through the skin.
Spiral Fracture: A fracture where the bone is twisted apart.
Linear Fracture: A fracture where it is linear to the bone.
Comminuted Fracture: A fracture where the bone is splintered.
