Deformity to the Skull

By: Sonja Eichenberger

Basal Fracture

Where the bone around the eyes, nose, ears , and jar break.

This is common in sports for example football, basketball, hockey, etc.


Normally, these areas break due to rough contact to the face. Most athletes suffer from nose breaks and the permanent result is an out of line nose. The nose tends to be sideways.

What do Doctors think?

IN some cases they give medication after doing x-rays to see how serious the break is. Some think ice and casting is the way out. Depending on the break the x-rays, the break is taken lightly or taken serious.
