Treatment of leg fracture depends upon the severity of the fracture and the location where the fracture occurs. Severe pain, swelling, tenderness, bruising, deformity, and inability to walk are common leg fracture symptoms. If you are experiencing such symptoms, you must consult your GP. Delay in diagnosis and treatment can result in severe problems later, such as poor healing. Stress and strenuous physical activities, such as running, ballet dancing, playing basketball, and marching, are the critical risk factors in developing a fracture in the leg.
