What is a compression fracture?
A compression fracture occurs when the normal vertebral body of the spine is squished, or compressed, to a smaller height. This injury tends to happen in two groups of people. First, are patients who are involved in traumatic accidents. When a load placed on the vertebrae exceeds its stability, it may collapse. This is commonly seen after a fall. The second, and much more common, group of patients are those with osteoporosis.
Different types of fractures?
There is the 'green stick' fracture, which usually seen on abused children, where the fracture goes around the bone, showing that it was twisted. Then there is the compound fracture, where the broken bone is sticking out through the skin. I think the other fracture is a simple fracture, but I'm not sure about the name. There are also: - Comminuted fracture, in which the bone shatters - Compression, Depressed, Impacted, Spiral
What is a broken bone called?
A broken bone is often called a "fracture" or "bone fracture". Some examples from the Wikipedia entry on bone fracture. * Complete Fracture- A fracture in which bone fragments separate completely. * Incomplete Fracture- A fracture in which the bone fragments are still partially joined. * Linear Fracture- A fracture that is parallel to the bone's long axis. * Transverse Fracture- A fracture that is at a right angle to the bone's long axis. * Oblique Fracture- A fracture that is diagonal to a bone's long axis. * Compression Fracture-A fracture that usually occurs in the vertebrae. * Spiral Fracture- A fracture where at least one part of the bone has been twisted. * Comminuted Fracture- A fracture causing many fragments. * Compacted Fracture- A fracture caused when bone fragments are driven into each other * Open Fracture- A fracture when the bone reaches the skin * Bug fracture- A fracture when the bone is in place, but the fracture has the appearance of a crushed insect.

How many types of ways bones break in your body?
There are basically two types of bone breaks with subcategories of each. A bone can be broken in a simple fracture or a compound fracture. The simple fracture is a more common type of break. The bone breaks within the body and it may vary from a hairline fracture to a complete break. The compound fracture is a break that pierces the flesh and skin and protrudes outside your body.

What is a break in a bone called?
Complete break in the continuity of bone or crack in bone can be termed as fracture. There are various types and pattern of fractures. It may be; Closed open splintered dispaced Patterns of fracture include; transverse spiral oblique greenstick compression A break or a crack in the bone is called a fracture. It is called a fracture. When your bone cracks or dents, its called a fracture. When it completely breaks in half, its called a break.

What is the specific name of a fracture called?
Sometimes, excess pressure is applied to a bone that results in the breaking of the bone, also called a fracture. Fractures are common. Most people suffer from fractures at least once during their lifetime. Children's bones are relatively more flexible and less likely to break. Falls or other accidents that do not cause harm in children can cause complete fractures in older adults. Older adults suffer from fractures more than children because their bones are comparatively brittle. Bone fractures are caused by various reasons. It could be because of a fall from a height, motor accidents and repetitive forces on the bone because of physical activities like running or weightlifting. Different types of bone fractures: - Open Fracture : An open fracture is a fracture where the broken bone is exposed. That is dangerous because of increased chances of infection. Closed Fracture : A closed fracture is a fracture where the bone is broken, but the skin is intact. Simple fracture : The fracture occurs along one line, splitting the bone into two pieces. Multi-fragmentary fracture : In this the bone splits into multiple pieces. Compression Fracture : A compression fracture is a closed fracture that occurs when two or more bones are forced against each other. It commonly occurs to the bones of the spine and may be caused by falling into a standing or sitting position, or a result of advanced osteoporosis. Avulsion Fracture : An avulsion fracture is a closed fracture where a piece of bone is broken off by a sudden, forceful contraction of a muscle. This type of fracture is common in athletes and can occur when muscles are not properly stretched before activity. This fracture can also because of an injury. Impacted Fracture : An impacted fracture is similar to a compression fracture, yet it occurs within the same bone. It is a closed fracture which occurs when pressure is applied to both ends of the bone, causing it to split into two fragments that jam into each other. This type of fracture is common in car accidents and falls. Stress Fracture : It is a common overuse injury. It is most often seen in athletes who run and jump on hard surfaces such as runners, ballet dancers and basketball players. Compression fracture of the spine : It is common in individuals with osteoporosis. Often no identifiable injury causes it. This results in significant pain and disability. Rib fractures : If you experience pain while breathing you probably have a rib fracture. In this condition you also have tenderness and shallow breathing. Complete Fracture : in this the bone fragments separate completely. Incomplete Fracture : in this the bone fragments are still partially joined. Linear Fracture : in this the fracture is parallel to the bone's long axis. Transverse Fracture : in this the fracture is at a right angle to the bone's long axis. Oblique Fracture : in this the fracture is diagonal to a bone's long axis. Spiral Fracture : in this at least one part of the bone has been twisted. Comminuted Fracture : in this the fracture results in several fragments. Compacted Fracture : in this the fracture is caused when bone fragments are driven into each other
