Injuries from Car Accidents in Atlanta
"I heard the doctor say the phrase 'greenstick fracture' –
what does that mean?"
A greenstick fracture is diagnosed when a bone cracks but doesn’t
break all the way through. This type of fracture tends to be more likely
in younger-aged bones, those of infants or children, that are more flexible.
A greenstick fracture is named for the similar effect that occurs when
you try to bend a green stick of wood and the outside splinters off while
the rest of the wood bends.
It can be difficult to clearly distinguish a greenstick fracture after an
automobile accident. A child can be vague regarding his/her injuries and pain, and the symptoms
of greenstick fractures are common to other
injuries – pain, swelling, bent or twisted limb and, in some cases, no symptoms.
