The bone structure is changed continuously through two processes:
- The process of “training” (formation of new bone).
- Process of “resorption” (degradation of old bone).
The interactions of these two processes is the bone, which reaches its maximum density in the third decade of life. Until age 30, bones are formed more quickly than degrade, then age 30, bones break down faster than they are formed. Read the rest of this entry »
When a bone breaks tell them to fracture. There are more than one way to break a bone. From a green stick fracture, like branches of a tree is still green (a thin break in the bone) or a bone is broken into two parts as the industry matures in a tree in half. Read the rest of this entry »
Fracture is defined as a disruption of the structural integrity of the ‘ bone that can be traumatic or spontaneous (pathology).
In the case of trauma, bone fractures when the trauma was sufficient to outweigh the limits of strength of bone.
The trauma can affect the bone directly or indirectly.
In the first case the bone fracture at the point where the force is applied.
In the case of indirect trauma fracture occurred at a certain distance from the point of force application, which propagates along the kinetic chain of a limb or spine up to the fracture site. Read the rest of this entry »
Which often occur from a fall?
Injury or accident. You may need a
X-ray to determine if you have broken
Bone after the bone has returned to
Put in place, might have to use a
Cast or splint to keep the bone
Move. If you suffer from a serious fracture or other
Injury and may need surgery
Remain in the hospital. Most
Bones heal after 6 to 8 weeks. Read the rest of this entry »
Breaking a bone, usually accompanied by lesions of the surrounding tissues, whose severity depends on which bone is affected and the type of fracture? Fractures can be exposed (when the skin and soft tissue covering the bone are torn) or closed; broken (fractured bone ends are separated or angled) or compound, or a green wood (partial decrease bone that does not lead to its complete breakdown.)
Bone fractures – Causes
The fractures are usually caused by trauma during accidents, falls, bruises or unusual movements. Some diseases (such as infection, benign bone tumors, cancer, and osteoporosis) may weaken parts of the skeleton, making it easier for the fractures (in this case, it is called pathological fractures).
