When to Choose Urgent Care for Broken Bones
If you’ve broken a bone, you might assume that you need to go to the emergency room. But that’s not always the case. If you’ve sustained only a minor fracture, treatment can instead be administered by an immediate care provider like PhysicianOne Urgent Care.
When you visit us for minor broken bone treatment, we’ll start by speaking with you about your medical history and injury, performing a physical examination, and taking digital X-rays (we’re able to do this on-site, saving patients the time and hassle of having to travel elsewhere for imaging). If we determine that you did fracture a bone, we’ll administer the necessary treatment, which may involve splinting or a cast.
Keep in mind, however, that more severe breaks will likely need to be treated at an emergency room. You should call 911 or get to a nearby hospital if:
- Your bone is protruding out of your skin.
- There’s a noticeable deformity at the site of the fracture.
- You’re experiencing excessive bleeding, shortness of breath, or loss of consciousness.
