Causes Of Broken Bones

Broken bones have been a growing issue in the United States for the last few decades. Over the past 30 years, the number of bone fractures has increased dramatically. In fact, a recent study from the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development has linked the growing issue of broken bones to a shift in the typically daily diet. Children are no longer consuming milk at the rate in which they had in previous decades. As a result, children are calcium deficient and thus unable to withstand impact due to unhealthy bones.

In the United States, broken bones account for some of the most frequent hospital visits. Approximately 6.3 million bone fractures occur each year throughout the nation. Arizona, much like the rest of the country, has suffered from a rising occurrence in the number of Auto Accidents

  • Truck Accidents

  • Motorcycle Collisions

  • Sports Injuries

  • Work-Related Injuries

Types of Broken Bones

Orthopedic physicians in the United States see more broken bone injuries than any other type of ailment. Broken bones are considered to be either open or closed and either displaced or non-displaced. Treatment for these injuries depends on the location of the break, the force of the impact, and the damage to any surrounding tissues or bones. Regardless of how severe you feel your injury may be, a medical professional must be the one to assess the damages and determine the best plan of action for treatment.

The following are some of the most common types of broken bones:

  • Compound Fracture

  • Oblique Fracture

  • Comminuted Fracture

  • Spiral Fracture

  • Impacted Fracture

  • Greenstick Fracture

  • Stress Fracture

  • Transverse Fracture

In general, all of the above types of broken bones are treatable. However, the longer accident victims wait to seek medical care, the greater the likelihood that these injuries will worsen. As such, personal injury victims must immediately go to a doctor for an assessment of damages. A healthcare professional will be able to examine the damage and determine a treatment plan. If you or a loved one has been injured and treated for broken bones, you may be entitled to monetary recompense for the damages that you have suffered.
