Orthopedic help by the specialists in Tarzana
Your bones are some of the toughest parts of your body and they can withstand a great amount of stress and strain. However, sometimes the strain that is added proves too great for them, leading to your bones bending or breaking. When bones break or bend, the body exhibits certain symptoms, such as:
- Swelling in the area of injury
- Bruising and redness
- Bones jutting out or a deformity
These signs indicate that you may have a fracture.
Fracture diagnosis and treatment
From minor cracks to clean breaks, there are multiple types of fractures that can occur, depending on the type of accident, the area of injury, and the strength of the bone.
