Broken bones are common–and painful–injuries. But whether it’s a rolled ankle on the basketball court or an aching wrist after a fall, Range Urgent Care can help. With on-site X-rays, our medical team can quickly evaluate your injury and get you the treatment you need to start feeling better.
Symptoms of a Fracture
- Intense pain in the affected area
- Tingling and numbness
- Immobility or limited mobility to move a limb
- Misshapen limb or joint, out–of-place appearance
- Bruising, swelling, or bleeding
If you’re suffering from any of these symptoms, head into Range Urgent Care. Our providers can help determine if the injury is a sprain, strain, or bone fracture, and recommend the best treatment plan.
If it is indeed a fracture, the bones may need to be reset into place and immobilized in a cast or splint to heal– a treatment known as reduction. Only some fractures will require reduction, yet all fractures require immobilization. Immobilizing the fracture with a cast, sling, splint, and/or brace is essential for proper healing.
Serious fractures may require surgery or devices such as pins, plates, and rods to reposition the bone. If this is the case, we can refer you to a specialist and help coordinate your care.
