Yes it was a fracture. When i think of break i usually picture like bone sticking out through skin which is not what happened. So yes i broke his elbow....im sorry for being so confusing.
I always thought a fracture was a crack in the bone and a break was a complete separation? I dont know clearly im not a medical person...but yes i fractured his elbow and as i said above the crack sound im not sure if it was his elbow or my wrist
Don't need a medical definition, only Websters definition and Fracture means break! I have had both a cracked rib and a broken rib. When it was cracked thats how the Dr. defined it, when it was broken, he said fractured (and there's a pain difference too). The cracked rib didn't hurt as much but bothered me longer as an ache. The broken rib just plain old hurt like hell! Getting in and out of bed and my car (as well as breathing) was just down right painful! Hey, how about posting the vid of the incident if possible?
