Fractures, Sprains & Muscle Tears
If you think you may have broken (fractured) a bone, sprained a joint, or torn a muscle, it’s important that you seek medical attention so that you get proper treatment.
Recognizing a Fractured Bone
It can be difficult to determine whether an injury is a fracture, sprain, or muscle tear.
Common Signs of a Fractured Bone Include:
- Pain in an area which increases when applying pressure
- Bruising or swelling
- Disfigurement of the affected area
- Protruding bone from the surface of the skin

It’s essential that you get the care you need quickly, whether the injury is a fracture, sprain, or torn muscle.
