by Yenny (SU)
A fracture occurs when there is a break in a bone. These breaks are categorized by the size and severity of the split or fracture, and whether there is damage inflicted on surrounding tissue.

Fractures are common, with most people estimated to experience two fractures during their lifetimes.
