Closed Reduction & POP

Closed Reduction & POPReduction is the repositioning a bone or bones to their normal or near normal position after a fracture or dislocation. The goals of a reduction are to restore position, which includes alignment, rotation, and length, of the bone or joint after injury. The purpose is to prevent or reduce later deformity, to encourage healing and normal use of the bone and/or joint and limb, and reduce pain. In the case of a fracture, it is also important for the bone ends to meet correctly apposition. If a fracture is described as "nondisplaced" or in "anatomic position," no reduction maneuver is required to improve position, since the fracture is already in an appropriate position.
