Post-Traumatic Fracture

General Condition

What is Post-Traumatic Fracture?

Post-traumatic fracture is a break in the bone that results from an injury, such as a fall or blow to the body. The break may occur close to the site of impact or farther away, depending on how much force was applied and how strong the bones are in that area.

What are the types of Post-Traumatic Fracture?

There are three main types of post-traumatic fractures: compression fractures, oblique fractures and fractures caused by rotational forces.

Compression Fractures

Compression fractures occur when the bone is hit so hard that it breaks under the pressure. These types of fractures are common in older people who have osteoporosis or other bone diseases that make their bones weaker than normal.

Oblique Fractures

Oblique fractures occur when a force is applied to one side of a bone and then another force is applied from the opposite direction. They can happen in any bone, but they’re most common in the spine and lower leg bones. These types of fractures are often caused by automobile accidents or falls.

Fractures Caused by Rotational Forces

Rotational forces can cause several different types of fractures depending on where they occur on the body and what type of force is involved in causing them. A rotational force occurs when there’s an external force applied to an object that causes its rotation around an axis point within itself—like when you throw a ball up into the air and catch it again as it comes back down to earth!

What are the causes of Post-Traumatic Fracture?

Post-Traumatic Fracture is a break in the bone that occurred due to trauma. The causes of post-traumatic fractures are varied and depend on the nature of the injury. For example, if you fall off your bike, you might get a fracture in your wrist or elbow. If you bang your head on something, it’s possible for your skull to fracture.

The severity of the fracture depends on where it occurs and how bad the impact was. The location of a fracture will determine which type of treatment is required (and whether surgery is necessary).

What are the symptoms of Post-Traumatic Fracture?

The symptoms of Post-Traumatic Fracture include:

  • Pain in the area of the bone that was fractured
  • Swelling around the site of the fracture
  • Tenderness in the area of the fracture
  • Bruising around the affected area
  • Difficulty moving or using the affected area (depending on where on your body you broke your bone)

Recommended Exercise

General Condition

What are the exercises for Post-Traumatic Fracture?

In order to recover from a post-traumatic fracture, you should follow the instructions of your doctor. However, there are some exercises that can help you with your recovery:

Range of motion exercises

These will help you regain mobility in your joints and prevent stiffness and pain.

Strengthening exercises

Strengthening muscles helps you recover from weakness and atrophy caused by the fracture.

Cardiovascular exercise

Cardio helps increase blood flow to the injured area as well as improving overall fitness levels to help with daily living activities such as climbing stairs or walking long distances without experiencing fatigue or shortness of breath.

What are the treatments for Post-Traumatic Fracture?

Post-Traumatic Fracture can be treated with the following:

  • Physical therapy to strengthen the muscles surrounding the area of injury
  • Heat and cold therapy to help relax muscles and reduce swelling, as well as reduce pain
  • Medication such as ibuprofen or naproxen sodium may be prescribed by your doctor
  • The most common treatment is bed rest or immobilization (using a cast or brace) until the fracture heals.
  • Surgery may be needed if there are complications from the injury such as severe pain, infection or deformity.

General Condition

What brace is used for Post-Traumatic Fracture?

Post-Traumatic Fracture is a condition that results in the bones of the human body being broken as a result of trauma.

The main brace used for Post-Traumatic Fracture is a mobilization brace. A mobilization brace is a type of orthosis that is used to help patients with their recovery from fractures, sprains and other injuries. In particular, it can be used to help those who have had fractures or dislocations heal correctly by providing support and protection from excess strain on the affected area.

A mobilization brace can also be used for other purposes such as helping patients who have undergone surgery for knee replacements or hip replacements recover more quickly by reducing swelling and pain in the affected area.
