What is a Fracture?
A fracture occurs when a bone is hit with enough force to break it. This may result from a single trauma or, in the case of stress fractures, repetitive impact on a bone. Many different types of bone fractures exist, and they vary in complexity.
Some of the most common symptoms of a bone fracture include:
What is a Dislocation?
A dislocation occurs when one of the bones in a joint pops out of its normal position. This is one of the most prevalent sports injuries and it can affect virtually any joint in the body, though the shoulder is the most commonly affected.
Dislocations are not only painful, but can also damage the tissues around the joint, including the muscles, tendons, nerves, and blood vessels. Proper care after a joint dislocation is essential to avoid future injury to the affected joint.
