One side of a bone bends, raising a little buckle, without breaking the other side of the bone.</p> <h3>Who Gets Buckle Fractures?</h3> <p>This type of fracture usually happens in children under 10 years old. That's because their <a href="https://kidshealth.org/ws/RadyChildrens/en/parents/bones-muscles-joints.html/">bones</a> are softer and more flexible than adult bones. So the injury makes the bone bend and buckle, rather than break.</p> <p><img class="right" title="" src="https://kidshealth.org/EN/images/illustrations/buckleFracture_a_enIL.png" alt="Illustration: Buckle fracture" /></p> <h3>How Do Buckle Fractures Happen?</h3> <p>A buckle fracture usually happens when the bone is compressed (pressed together with force). This can happen, for example, when a child <a href="https://kidshealth.org/ws/RadyChildrens/en/parents/falls-sheet.html/">falls</a> onto an outstretched hand.</p> <h3>How Are Buckle Fractures Treated?</h3> <p>Health care providers treat most buckle fractures with a <a href="https://kidshealth.org/ws/RadyChildrens/en/parents/splints.html/">splint</a>.</p>Fractura en rodeteUna fractura en rodete (o fractura de torus) es un tipo de fractura de un hueso.

How Broken Bones HealBroken bones have an amazing ability to heal, especially in kids. Full healing can take time, but new bone usually forms a few weeks after an injury.https://kidshealth.org/ws/RadyChildrens/en/parents/fractures-heal.html/0ec4eb9b-2074-4d95-b35a-acf2a7e4deb4
