The Different Types of Fractures

Many people mistakenly believe that bone fractures and breaks are two different conditions. In fact, they are the same, and both terms can be used to describe different kinds of fracture-based bone injuries. This video provides more information about types of fractures. 

There are two types of fractures: displaced and non-displaced. With displaced fractures, a portion of the broken bone has moved and no longer lines up with the other part of the bone. With a non-displaced fracture, the bone has not moved. Non-displaced fractures may only appear as small cracks on an X-ray.
