A fracture is just another word for a crack in your bone, and the word "hairline" is to imply that the crack itself is literally as thin as a strand of hair. If you knocked a …vase over and a thin line appeared, but the vase did not break, that would be like a hairline fracture to your bone.
It is caused by unusual or repeated stress. This is in contrast to other types of fractures, which are usually characterized by a solitary, severe impact. It could be describe…d as a very small sliver or crack in the bone. this is why it is sometimes dubbed "hairline fracture". It typically occurs in weight-bearing bones, such as the tibia (bone of the lower leg) and metatarsals (bones of the foot). It is a common sports injury, and most cases are associated with athletics.

It should show up in xray imagery as a thin white line, especially if the image is taken while the area isn't swollen.. Other symtpoms include a large hematoma on top of the …patella that is itself topped by a "fat cap" -- fat or marrow from inside the bone that has leaked out and floated to the surface of the hematoma.. Also, most fractured patellas are proximally displaced (although other displacements are possible). Lay the patent down and compare to the non-injured patella for positioning.. One test for a more seriously fractured patella is to lay the patient on their back and ask them to attempt to perform a leg lift with the injured leg -- no more than 10 degrees, or to the point it hurts. If the patient cannot lift the leg (regardless of pain), this is an indication of a fracture, as the connective tissue bonding the quadriceps to the back of the patella is not getting sufficient leverage to lift the leg.. This can be a very painful injury. All evaluation should be performed in a manner that does not increase patient suffering, or skipped altogether.. This injury and other patellar injuries like it respond very well to cold packing. 10 minutes on; 10 minutes off.
Just by waiting for it to recover
A hairline fracture of the wrist will not always need to be immobilized. If there is no displacement of the bones, the wrist will heal perfectly without casting. You may find …greater comfort using a stiff brace rather than nothing, and the brace is far more comfortable, hygienic and better for the skin than a plaster cast. Your doctor will need to see x-rays to determine if the break needs casting or not. Without the cast you will need to exercise caution since the bone is already weakened, but with normal usage as you can bear it the wrist will heal in the same amount of time as with a cast. See your doctor and have x-rays in any event.

I got a hairline fracture in my ankle by to running up a slide and jumping off and due to not wearing proper shoes. When I landed I mistakenly landed on my left foot and due t…o all that force coming down on that one ankle, the outer part of my foot touched the side of my calf..... It swelled up so bad that when I got it X-Ray'd the doctors couldn't see the fracture, they thought I just got a real bad sprain. It wasn't until a week later they realized I had a hairline fracture in my ankle. Sorry for rambling on. :P
