What’s the difference between a rupture and a fracture? The term “rupture” refers to injuries sustained in the soft tissue surrounding bones, while a fracture (or break) occurs in bones and harder tissue. Ruptures tend to happen to ligaments and tendons—more elastic body parts that do not break.

Although ligament and tendon ruptures are not ‘broken,’ it can still cause considerable pain for Ogden patients. The affected area will still be inflamed and may require surgical or medical attention to heal properly. Upper extremities prone to rupture include the bicep and rotator cuff.
