Fractures (minor)

Fractures (minor)

A minor fracture can be treated at our urgent care locations. Minor fractures (aka incomplete fractures) occur when the bone is not completely broken and is generally a hairline crack.

Fractures often times result in intense pain, especially with touch or movement. 

 

Common signs and symptoms for a fracture may be:

  • Extreme pain
  • Difficulty moving or supporting weight with injured area
  • Swelling and redness
  • Deformity 

 

What to expect from a visit at our clinic:

  • A provider will conduct a thorough examination of the injury
  • A provider may order an x-ray to see if there is a break or fracture
  • A care plan and treatment for the injury will be provided. May include splints, medication, referral etc. depending on the medical recommendation of the provider.

 

If you suspect a broken bone, visit the doctor immediately.
