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.

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!
