Treating Fractured Bones After an Accident
Treatment of a fractured bone depends largely on the severity of the injury. Some broken bones can be healed by using a cast. Other fractures require surgery and the fixation of plates, screws, and rods.
Long-term, a bone fracture can cause arthritis in the affected area, especially if the fracture involves a joint like a wrist, shoulder or ankle. The victim may require physical therapy and chiropractic care. He or she may never regain full functionality of the affected area.
