Fractures usually happen when more force is applied to the bone than it can take. Bones are more susceptible to fracture when an appendage is twisted. Fractures can be caused by slips, falls, trauma, or a dropping object or blow to the body.
Symptoms of a fracture include:

- Difficulty move an injured area or the adjacent joints
- Bruising or redness
Depending on the severity of injury, type of fracture, OSS surgeons evaluate both non-surgical and surgical treatment options in fracture care.
