The earlier you come in for fracture care and trauma management in Manchester, the better your outcome will be. A fracture is a broken bone. A bone may be completely fractured or partially fractured crosswise, lengthwise, or in multiple pieces. The severity of a fracture depends on the force that caused the break. If the bone’s breaking point has been exceeded only slightly, then the bone may crack rather than break all the way through. If the force is extreme, the bone may shatter. If the bone breaks in such a way that bone fragments stick out through the skin, or a wound penetrates down to the broken bone, the fracture is called an open fracture. This type of fracture is particularly serious because once the skin is broken, infection in both the wound and the bone can occur. The doctor will take an xray and examine your fracture to determine what type of break you have. When the broken ends of the bone line up and are barely out of place it is called a stable fracture. In an open, compound fracture, the skin may be pierced by the bone or by a blow that breaks the skin. The bone may or may not be visible in the wound. A transverse fracture has a horizontal fracture line while an oblique fracture has an angled pattern to the break. In a comminuted fracture, the bone shatters in three or more pieces.

Immobilizing the break with a cast is usually the best course of trauma management in Manchester. In some instances, such as in severe trauma, surgery may be your best option for recovery. Once the bone has healed and the cast is removed, you will have rehabilitation to restore strength, range of motion, and function to the affected muscles. No one plans for an emergency, but if one should occur, you can always rely upon prompt, compassionate care from Dr. Dua.
