Fracture is an injury to a bone, often caused by excessive force or trauma. It can cause acute pain, swelling and bruising. In serious cases, a fracture may require immediate medical attention and surgery. For milder fractures, immobilization with a cast, splint or brace can typically be used to treat and encourage healing.
