A fracture is a break in the bone which is either complete or partial and disrupts its continuity. This condition happens when there is more pressure on the bone than it can withstand from sudden trauma or injury. Shinbone fracture is the most common bone fracture where the bone protrudes from the skin during the damage. Fractures usually occur in the hand, wrist, ankle, collarbone, skull, spine, or hip. The condition will become more complicated when osteoporosis is the underlying pathology.

The symptoms of a fracture vary depending on which bone is fractured. Some of the symptoms are:

Swelling or bruising over a bone
Deformity of an arm or leg
