When a pressure exerted versus a bone is more powerful than the bone can bear, a damaged bone or bone fracture occurs. Bones have a softer centre, called marrow, where blood cells are made. There are different types of bone fractures. Common bone fractures consist of the hip, ankle and wrist. Hip fractures occur usually in older people. Busted bones take around four to 8 weeks to recover, depending on the age and health and wellness of the individual and the type of break. Root causes of bone cracks can consist of: Traumatic incidents such as showing off injuries, vehicle mishaps and drops; Conditions such as osteoporosis and some types of cancer that cause bones to fracture more quickly, meaning even minor injury and falls can come to be serious. The symptoms of a fracture rely on the specific bone and the severity of the injury, however may include: Pain; Swelling; Bruising; Deformity; Inability to use the arm or leg.
