What is a broken bone or fracture?

Broken bones (also called fractures) are very common in children. They can occur anywhere from a simple fall on the playground to more serious accidents. Sports are also a common cause of fractures in kids and teenagers. 

Any injury where there is a concern for fracture should be immediately seen by a doctor. See a map of our emergency and urgent care locations.
