Thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com,
Fractures occur as a result of collisions in areas of the human body that exceed the pressure / load capacity that can be resisted by bone strength. Fractures can occur in any bone in any part of the body, it can be in the form of cracks, partial fractures, whole fractures that can cause deformity in the area related to the collision.
Keep in mind that the mechanism of the collision event in an individual's position when hit, an accident can affect the degree and type of fracture experienced by someone. There are several types of fractures that can be experienced by someone including simple fractures, open fractures, closed fractures, comminutive fractures, oblique fractures, stress fractures, compression fractures, and other types of fractures. Some methods of fracture healing can involve plastering, sling placement, or surgical methods.
Fracture healing using a cast needs to be done periodically control, the degree of fracture experienced, the condition of the bones and tissue around the bone need to be monitored during the recovery period, the time of the cast is done until the bone begins to reconnect with the alignment / good bone position.
