Bone fracture

A bone fracture (sometimes abbreviated FRX or Fx, Fx, or #) is a medical condition in which there is a damage in the continuity of the bone. A bone fracture may be the result of high force impact or stress, or a minimal trauma injury as a result of certain medical conditions that weaken the bones, such as osteoporosis, bone cancer, or osteogenesis imperfecta, where the fracture is then properly termed a pathologic fracture.

Fractures might be one of the most annoying injuries of all. Typically, it takes 6-8 weeks for a fracture to heal. A fracture can be as simple as just a small crack into the bone, or as devastating as creating a dislocation and needing surgery!
