Fractures Powerpoint for Athletic Injury

  1. 1. (Broken Bones)Info from: www.kidshealth.html and nursingcrib.com/nursing-notes-reviewer/fractures/ Jennifer Nielsen
  2. 2. Same thing as a broken bone•Greenstick Fracture•Transverse Fracture•Simple Fracture•Oblique Fracture•Comminuted Fracture•Spiral Fracture•Compound Fracture
  3. 3. a) Inflammationb) Bone Productionc) Bone Remodeling
  4. 4. Inflammation Lasts a few days Causes blood clotting in fractured area Clotting creates a stability and framework for new bone production
  5. 5. Bone Production Blood clotted areas are replaced with “soft callus” (fibrous tissue and cartilage) Then replaced with “hard callus” (hard bone)
  6. 6. Bone Remodeling Lasts a few months Bone continues to form, grow stronger, become compact, and return to original form. Growing stronger results from little exercise (like standing and walking)
  7. 7. What steps would an athletetake to recover? X-ray and find what type of fracture it is  May need a metal pin or pins  Cast Don’t use the fractured bone/bones Depending on age, healing usually takes 6 to 8 weeks (less when younger or more when older)
  8. 8.  Once bone is healed pretty well, physical therapy will help to regain strengthIf bone is healing slowly the doctor may:1. Longer immobilization2. Bone stimulation3. Surgery4. Bone growth proteins
  9. 9. Things that slow the healingprocess Movement of the bone fragments  Weight bearing too soon Smoking  Constricts the blood vessels  Decreases circulation Medical Conditions  Diabetes  Hormone-related problems  Vascular disease
  10. 10.  Some Medication  Corticosteroids  Other immunosuppressants Fractures that are  Severe  Complicated  Infected Advanced Age Poor Nutrition  Impaired metabolism
