A fracture is a break, usually in a bone. If the broken bone punctures the skin, it is called an open or compound fracture. Fractures commonly happen because of car accidents, falls or sports injuries. Other causes are low bone density and osteoporosis, which cause weakening of the bones. Fractures can occur in any bone in the body. There are several different ways in which a bone can fracture; a clean break to the bone that does not damage surrounding tissue or tear through the skin is known as a closed fracture or a simple fracture.
