What Are The Different Types of Broken Bones?

by Stephanie Meadows
The human skeleton is the internal framework of the body. It is composed of 270 bones at birth – this total decreases to 206 bones by adulthood after some bones have fused together. No matter how careful you are, you will sometimes find yourself in situations where you end up sustaining an injury. It can be a sprain, strain, dislocation, or even a fracture. You get a fracture when your bone breaks due to extensive force that stretches the osseous tissue in the bone beyond limit.
