A spiral fracture (a.k.a. torsion fracture) is a bone fracture occurring when torque (
a rotating force) is applied along the axis of a bone. Spiral fractures often occur ...
Spiral fracture: This type of fracture is caused by a twisting force. The result is a
spiral-shaped fracture line about the bone, like a staircase. Spiral fractures can ...
1. the breaking of a part, especially a bone. 2. a break in continuity of bone; it may
be caused by trauma, twisting due to muscle spasm or indirect loss of leverage ...
Sep 16, 2013 ... Spiral fractures imply a twisting or torsional force applied to the bone. These can

A spiral fracture is a type of bone fracture which is caused by a twisting force.
They are also referred to as torsion fractures, in a reference to the forces involved
Fractures are simply a break in a bone caused by forces that exceed the ... Spiral
fractures are the result of an extreme twisting force being exerted on a bone.
Torus or buckle fractures are the result of compression from axial loading along
the length of the bone. Although earlier studies suggested that spiral fractures ...
A spiral fracture is caused when force is applied to a bone in a twisting motion.
According to the University of Texas Medical Branch, injuries where the end of an
If the bone fractures because of an extreme muscle contraction, the break curves
around the bone. This is sometimes called a "spiral fracture" or a "ball-thrower's ...
Fractures where the bone juts out and the two parts aren't in-line (displaced),
which shatter the bone (comminuted) or are caused by twisting the bone (spiral) ...
