Sprains, strains and broken bones
Our medical team can evaluate your injury and get you the treatment you need to start feeling better.
Have a sprain, a strain or a broken bone?
Sprains and Strains
Severe sprains and strains may require surgery, or indicate a broken bone. Our providers can rule out these more serious injuries and determine the best course of treatment. We will check the affected area for swelling, bruising, and stiffness, and look to pinpoint areas of tenderness. The location and severity of your pain will help reveal the extent of the injury.
Most sprains and strains can be treated with the R.I.C.E. method (rest, ice, compression and elevation) and over-the-counter pain relievers.
More severe injuries may require a brace or splint, or even surgery.
Broken Bones (Fractures)
Our providers can examine your injury and perform an X-ray to confirm a bone fracture. We have digital X-ray machines onsite for fast, convenient diagnostics.
If a fracture has occurred, the bones may need to be reset into place and immobilized in a cast or splint to heal. This treatment is known as reduction. Only some fractures will require reduction, yet all fractures require immobilization.
Serious fractures may require surgery or devices such as pins, plates, and rods to re-position the bone. If this is the case, we can refer you to a specialist and help coordinate your care.
