2. Types of Scaphoid Fractures

Scaphoid fractures are broken down into two classifications. A non-displaced fracture occurs when the fragments of the scaphoid bone remain aligned after the break. A displaced fracture occurs when the pieces of the scaphoid bone move away from their normal alignment, causing gapping or overlapping of the bone.
