Fractures

 

The word fracture means “the act of being broken” (oxford English dictionary). Fractures occur when a bone cannot take the force or energy applied to it. The most common fractures in young people are wrist fractures when one falls on an outstretched hand, and in the elderly population it is the hip. Physiotherapy for fractures differs depending on their location. The goal however is the same i.e to reduce pain and restore mobility, strength, stability and function. The recommended immediate treatment is to follow the R.I.C.E principles which are rest, ice, compression and elevation.
