What is a Bone Fracture?

A bone fracture is simply a break in a bone. There are different degrees of bone fractures. You can have a simple bone fracture where the bone did not move out of place. These are the easiest to heal. There are also more complex bone fractures where the bone may shift or completely brake through the skin. In that case surgery might be used to correct the displacement or manual movement of the bone back in to position may need to be done.
