We treat all types of fractures, throughout all stages of the healing process. Some fractures may require surgery to align the bones and to promote better long term function, but most can be treated without surgery.
There are many different types and patterns of fractures and each requires a different technique and procedure to repair it. Here are a few types of bone fracture categories:
Displaced Fracture: bone breaks into two or more pieces and moves out of alignment.
Non-Displaced Fracture: the bone breaks but does not move out of alignment.
Closed Fracture: the skin is not broken.
Open Fracture: the bone has broken through the skin – this is a medical emergency and you should be seen in the emergency or urgent care department immediately.
