What Are the Symptoms of A Fracture?

Other potential symptoms of a fracture include:

  • a snap or grinding sound when the injury occurs
  • swelling, redness, and bruising in the injured area
  • difficulty supporting weight with the injured area
  • visible deformity in the injured area
  • In some cases, you may see broken bone poking through your skin.
