Bone Fracture Assistance

In the event of a bone fracture, our support and comprehensive treatment options are at your disposal. We specialize in tailoring individualized plans to address your specific concerns, facilitating a speedy and thorough recovery from your fracture.

Types of Fractures and Symptoms

Bone fractures manifest in various forms, ranging from inconspicuous to instantly debilitating. Some common types include:

  • Stress fracture: Tiny cracks in a bone causing gradual pain, often occurring in the feet.
  • Greenstick fracture: Involves bending and cracking without complete separation, sometimes resembling a mild sprain, frequently observed in children due to their more flexible bones.
  • Spiral fracture: Characterized by a bone breaking in a spiral pattern, typically caused by a twisting injury.
  • Comminuted fracture: Bone breaks into three or more pieces, resulting in bone fragments around the break.

Regardless of the fracture type, there are shared indicators of a broken bone to be mindful of:

  • Pain
  • Bruising
  • Swelling
  • Inability to bear weight on the injury
  • Limited movement in the affected area
  • Grating sensation in a joint

Causes of Fractures

While healthy bones possess considerable strength, fractures commonly result from impactful forces. However, certain factors and conditions can weaken bones, making fractures more susceptible, even from minor bumps or routine activities. Contributing factors include:

  • Ageing
  • Inadequate nutrition
  • Lack of physical exercise
  • Medical conditions like osteoporosis, tumors, kidney disease, or diabetes

Diagnosing Your Fracture

At Activa Clinics, our expertise encompasses the diagnosis and treatment of various fractures. Utilizing advanced diagnostic tools such as x-ray, ultrasound, and bone scan, we gain a comprehensive understanding of your injury.

If weakened bones are identified as a potential cause, our approach involves uncovering the root issues to prevent future fractures.
