Fracture is the separation of an object or material into two, or more, pieces under the action of stress. The fracture of a solid almost always occurs due to the development of certain displacement discontinuity surfaces within the solid. If a displacement develops in this case perpendicular to the surface of displacement, it is called a normal tensile crack or simply a crack; if a displacement develops tangentially to the surface of displacement, it is called a shear crack, slip band, or dislocation. The word Fracture is often applied to bones of living creatures (that is, a bone fracture), or to crystals or crystalline materials, such as gemstones or metal. Sometimes, in crystalline materials, individual crystals fracture without the body actually separating into two or more pieces. Depending on the substance which is fractured, a fracture reduces strength (most substances) or inhibits transmission of light (optical crystals). It can also be defined as a break in bone or cartilage. Although usually a result of trauma, a fracture can be the result of an acquired disease of bone, such as osteoporosis, or of abnormal formation of bone in a congenital disease of bone, such as osteogenesis imperfecta ('brittle bone disease'). Fractures are classified according to their character and location (for example, greenstick fracture of the radius).The major entities associated with fracture are Sports Injury and Rehabilitation,Occupational Therapy and Physical Rehabilitation.

Scope and Importance:
The primary and secondary prevention of fragility fractures by treating osteoporosis and reducing the risk of falls are of key importance to the current and future epidemiology of hip fracture. The diagnosis and management of hip fracture itself and of any comorbidity before, during and after surgery, have a profound effect on outcome, both for individuals and for services. There are many types of fractures, but the main categories are displaced, non-displaced, open, and closed. Displaced and non-displaced fractures refer to the way the bone breaks.
Fractures account for an estimated 10.2 million visits a year to hospitals and physician offices in the U.S., with fractures of the lower limbs accounting for the greatest proportion of visits (approximately 5.0 million), followed by those of the hand and fingers (2.9 million), and the radius or ulna (2.2 million). In 2010, U.S. sales of fracture fixation products totaled approximately $2,997.6 million. During the forecast period covered by this report, sales are expected to grow at a compound annual rate of 7.4%, reaching an estimated $4,276.8 million in the year 2015.
