What is the Difference Between a Bone Fracture and a Break?
When you have a fracture this is a bone that is broken. In other words, there isn’t a difference between a fracture and a break. There are several types of fractures including a stress fracture that is a hairline crack in the bone, as well as a compound fracture where the bone breaks out of the skin. You can have a fracture caused by trauma and injury, as well as overuse or disease within the bone. If you think you have a bone fracture it is important to seek urgent care assistance at BKUC immediately for treatment.
