Fracture as a result of trauma are called fractures and because of some underlying medical condition are called pathological fractures. Fractures are differentiated by type of mark it makes on the bone, it can be very mild as in Hairline fracture where there is a fine fracture line on bone or very complex as in comminuted fracture where bone gets broken in small pieces at fracture site.

Healing of bone or joining of fractures depend on various factors like type of fracture, age of patient, other underlying diseases, gender, type of bone, location of fracture etc. Fractures can be managed conservatively by giving plaster cast or splints and surgically by open reduction also , in both ways of management there is a phase of immobility, that lead to tight muscles, fascia and stiffness in joints.
