Bones are able to bend under some pressure, but when enough force is applied, they can fracture or break. Every year an average of six million Americans will fracture a bone, according to the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons. Fractures and breaks are typically caused by:
- Trauma such as a fall or other sudden accidents
- Reduced bone density caused by osteoporosis or cancer
- Overuse resulting in stress-related injuries
At Temecula Valley Hospital, we know that every break and fracture is different. That’s why orthopedic physicians perform careful examinations of each patient’s condition and injury to customize treatment. Physicians can guide their patients through treatment plans and the path towards recovery depending on the location or type of fracture sustained.
Orthopedic physicians treat breaks or fractures in areas including the hip, femur, ankle, humerus, pelvis, arm and hand.
