Simple or closed fracture: this is essentially a crack in the bone itself. This is a very painful
injury and will require a lengthy period of treatment to resolve.
Complete fracture: when the bone separates into two or more pieces. This type of broken
bone will require surgery to repair.
Greenstick fracture: this occurs when the bone partially breaks on one side of the bone.
Single fracture: refers to the fact that only one fracture has occurred.
Bowing fracture: a type of fracture affecting children, as the bones are more flexible.
This is when the bone bends but does not break.
Comminuted fracture: this occurs when the bone is broken into two pieces or the bone is actually crushed.
Open fracture: open fractures occur when the bone is sticking through the skin after
the injury. This type of fracture is extremely dangerous due to the risk
of infection that can be difficult to treat.
