There are various different types of bone fractures that you could sustain in an accident. Some are will be more painful than others and usually if it is more painful then it will be a more serious fracture meaning it also takes longer to heal and for you to regain full movement. The different types of fracture are:
- A displaced fracture – this occurs when the bones snap in one or more places leaving them out of line with each other.
- A non displaced fracture – which is what happens when you break the bone but it does not move.
- A closed fracture – this is when there are no wounds to the skin
- An open fracture – this means that the skin has been broken and often then the bone is visible through the skin.
All of us are at risk of a bone fracture and if you are unlucky enough to be involved in an accident that leaves you with a fracture you will be in a lot of pain and in most cases need some time off work.
If you suffer from a severe bone fracture you may not be able to look after yours elf or your family for example if you break your leg you will be unable to walk and if you break your arm or shoulder you will be unable to drive or do everyday household chores.
