Besides pain, after a fracture you may have stiffness, swelling and/or loss of movement.

Fracture treatment depends on the type of the break. Casts or splints are often used for simple breaks. You may need pins, wires, or plates to treat more complicated fractures.

Once your bone has healed, you will likely need follow-up treatment. Chiropractic care, acupuncture and massage therapy all share a similar approach to pain treatment. They emphasize that acute, chronic and neuropathic pain can often be treated without resorting to surgery or addictive medications. While each type of therapy has its unique benefits, using two or more in tandem can enhance their ability to heal and relieve pain.
