Broken Bones (Fractures)
Is it broken?
If you believe you have broken a bone, head into Liberty Urgent Care now for fast and affordable treatment. Our providers can evaluate your injury and perform an X-ray to confirm a bone fracture. We have digital X-ray machines onsite for fast, convenient diagnostics.
Symptoms of a Fracture
- Intense pain in the afflicted 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, simply walk into Liberty 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.
