What is the Difference between a break and a fracture in a human bone

Definition: A fracture is a broken bone. A broken bone is a fracture. While many people believe that a fracture is a "hairline break," or a certain type of broken bone, this is not true. A fracture and a broken bone are the same thing! Both of these words mean that the normal bone architecture has been disrupted. This does not imply a certain type of treatment, but in general, bones heal best when immobilized. Medical personnel describe fractures in the following ways:

* A complete fracture is when the bone has broken into two pieces.

* A greenstick fracture is when the bone cracks on one side only, not all the way through.

* A single fracture is when the bone is broken in one place.

* A comminuted fracture is when the bone is broken into more than two pieces or crushed.

* A bowing fracture, which only happens in kids, is when the bone bends but doesn't break.

* An open fracture is when the bone is sticking through the

skin.
