Author(s): Archana

In today’s scenario the sports have become highly competitive. The nature of all sports has become aggressive. So the chance of injuries also rises. This article will light up the most common sport injury i.e. facture. We have 206 bones in your body that make up your skeleton. Our skeleton supports and protects the soft tissues in your body and allows you to move. Bone is a living tissue with a soft center of bone marrow that produces blood cells. Your bones have a hard outer surface (the cortex) that contains minerals such as calcium. Healthy bones are strong and can bear a lot of weight and force. They do bend a little and sometimes you may apply force to a bone but it won’t break, but some times during a hard fall facture can occurs. Fractures usually happen when too much force is applied to a bone, usually during a fall or a sports accident.
