A greenstick fracture is a type of bone fracture commonly seen in children.

It occurs when a bone bends and partially breaks, resembling the way a green stick would break.

The term “greenstick” comes from the analogy to young, green branches with similar breaks.

In this type of fracture, the bone typically cracks on one side while the other side remains intact.

Greenstick fractures are more common in children because their bones are still developing and tend to be more flexible than adult bones.

Treatment for a greenstick fracture usually involves immobilization using a cast or splint to allow the bone to heal properly.

Sometimes, if the fracture is significant, a healthcare professional may need to realign the bone before immobilizing it.

Healing time for a greenstick fracture can vary, depending on the location and severity of the fracture.

Generally, children have a faster healing process compared to adults, and the bone can often repair itself within a few weeks.
