The application of a large external force to the bones of the human body, if it exceeds their limits of endurance, can have the consequence of interrupting the continuity of a bone. Interruption of the anatomical continuity and integrity of the bone is called a fracture. Fractures can occur after application of extremely high force (eg rolling, falling from a height, etc.), or even after small blows (eg falling from the same height) in cases of older people, patients with osteoporosis and .a. Fractures are classified based on the anatomical area of the human body as shown below.
