Just plain "someone breaks someone's limbs by bending them the wrong way" is People Sit on Chairs. (It's simply a fact of anatomy and physics.)

As far as situations with meaning where this can happen, though, check out Cold-Blooded Torture, Jack Bauer Interrogation Technique, and for more specific situations, Fold Spindle Mutilation and Knee-capping. It's also a good way to immediately mark someone as a Sadist and/or Combat Sadomasochist

Sickening "Crunch!" is related.
