Here I would like to compile some short facts about Fractures….
Fractures can occur because of direct blows, twisting injuries, or falls. There are many different types of fractures. So the below info might not apply to all
Understand the Pain:
Broken bones hurt for a variety of reasons including:
- The nerve endings that surround bones contain pain fibers and and these fibers become irritated when the bone is broken or bruised.
- Broken bones bleed, and the blood and associated swelling (edema) causes pain.
- Muscles that surround the injured area may go into spasm when they try to hold the broken bone fragments in place, and these spasms cause further pain.
