Broken Bones Attorney
Fractured bones, also known as broken bones, are not unusual. In fact, they are one of the most common orthopedic problems. Nearly seven million fractured bones are brought to medical attention in the United States every year. The average American citizen can expect to have two broken bones in their lifetime.
Types of Fractures
There are many different types of fractures. Their names describe the severity and the physical characteristics of the fracture.
Before beginning treatment, a doctor will perform an x-ray to diagnose the injury as a fracture as well as determine the exact type of fracture and subsequently the best course of treatment.
Then, the doctor will align the pieces of the bone properly so that the body’s natural healing process can begin. During this healing process, the bones need to be held in place. This can be done through casts, steel plates and screws, internal steel rods (for longer bones), and external devices that consist of steel pins connected to a steel beam.
These immobilization techniques will need to be left on the body for anywhere between two and eight weeks, depending on the location and severity of the bone fracture.
