Minor Fracture Treatment for Patients in Newtown, CT

Picture of a person with a broken arm holding their cast.Are you worried that you might have fractured a bone? If you’re in Newtown, Connecticut, or the surrounding area, you can rely on PhysicianOne Urgent Care for minor broken bone treatment. While you should certainly visit an emergency room for severe fractures (ones where the bone is protruding out of the skin or where there is a noticeable deformity, excessive bleeding, shortness of breath, or loss of consciousness), we proudly offer minor fracture treatment at our local immediate care center.

What Does Minor Broken Bone Treatment Involve?

When you visit an urgent care for a broken bone, the provider you see will likely begin by asking about your medical history and your injury—for example, how and when the injury occurred, what symptoms you’ve been experiencing, and whether your symptoms have changed over time—then they’ll perform a physical examination. If they suspect a fracture, they’ll order an X-ray or another type of imaging to confirm the diagnosis.

If it turns out that you did break a bone, treatment will depend on the severity of the break. For a minor fracture, treatment is typically limited to immobilizing the area by applying a splint or a cast. But if your break is more severe, surgery may be necessary to realign the bone fragments and secure them in place while they heal. In that case, an urgent care would likely refer you to a local surgeon who would be able to perform the necessary procedure.

"The overall care I received was excellent! I also appreciate your affiliation with Yale New Haven Hospital."

Derby, CT

"Throughout the visit I felt like the staff really cared. The Doctor took his time talking with me about my symptoms, and I felt like he listened to all my concerns and took that into consideration when recommending the right treatment. Thank you!"

Hamden, CT

"I had to take my son in for an ear infection following a sudden change in temperament at daycare. He was inconsolable the entire car ride but when we got there and by the time we left this care facility he was back to his normal happy go lucky little two year old boy. I highly recommend PhysicianOne Urgent Care."

Westwood, MA

"I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the attention you gave me last week. My son was started on antibiotics and ear drops. Within 24 hours he began to feel better. The poor kid had been going to school in tears because he was afraid of missing any more days, but feeling (and looking) just awful! He's not been able to even think about lacrosse practice, but thanks to starting him on antibiotics, he was thrilled to return to practice today."
