Fracture + Trauma

Fractures occur when our bones are impacted by forces greater than they can bear. Fractures can range from a minor crack in a bone, to a completely broken bone and a displaced fracture.

For minor fractures to heal properly, it usually requires the need to immobilize the bone by utilizing a brace, splint, or cast. More complicated fractures can require surgery to correct them. It is important that you receive a diagnosis promptly; otherwise you can cause additional damage to the bone, nearby blood vessels, nerves and other tissues surrounding the bone. A medical exam and x-rays are often necessary to confirm a fracture diagnosis. Fractures are an injury routinely treated by the physicians at the Orthopedic + Fracture Specialists.
