Uncommon Care for a Common Injury.

Fracture care is a medical specialty focused on fixing musculoskeletal issues after a traumatic event, or as the result of disease. When patients experience a traumatic incident, such as a car accident or bad fall, it most commonly results in a fracture or broken bone. These injuries require quick evaluation, so it is imperative to seek medical treatment from an experienced doctor right away to avoid further injury or complication.


Causes of bone fractures include trauma, overuse, and diseases that weaken bones. Although the main symptom is pain, there may also be a loss of functionality, depending on the area affected.


Treatment often involves resetting the bone in place and immobilizing it in a cast or splint to allow it time to heal. Sometimes, surgery may be needed to reset the bone.
