Medical Definition of Spiral fracture Low Back Pain Slideshow Take the Back Pain Quiz! Back Pain Myths & Facts Pictures
Spiral fracture: A fracture, sometimes called a torsion fracture, in which a bone has been twisted apart.
The thigh bone, or femur is the longest and strongest bone of the body. It takes a lot of force to break the femur in an adult so it is often accompanied by other injuries. The fracture is a disabling problem, severely limiting mobility until it is stabilized. Until recently the most common way to treat a fractured femur was to apply traction, the source of a thousand cartoons and jokes. Fortunately, modern treatment usually stabilizes the bone quite early on and allows you to move around on crutches.
