A broken leg (leg fracture) is defined as a break or crack in one of the bones in your leg. Common causes include falls, motor vehicle accidents and sports injuries.
Treatment of a broken leg depends on the location and severity of the injury. A severely broken leg may require surgery to implant devices into the broken bone to maintain stability and proper alignment during healing. Other injuries may be treated with a cast or splint. In all cases, prompt diagnosis and treatment of the broken leg is critical to complete healing.
