Fractures are very common, and they can happen to anyone, often at the most unexpected times. Many injuries are minor fractures that simply require taking it easy for a few weeks. Other fractures are more complex and may require a cast or splint to be worn for an extended period of time. In some cases, additional fixation such as screws may be needed temporarily or permanently.
Any severe injury can benefit from the skill of a trauma specialist. An injury is considered to be traumatic when it involves complicated fractures, multiple fractures, injury to multiple areas, and injuries caused by falls, impacts or penetrating objects.
