Minor Fracture Treatment for Patients in Attleboro, MA
If you’ve broken a bone, you can entrust your care to the professionals at PhysicianOne Urgent Care. Our network of urgent care centers has been serving patients since 2008, and we’re pleased to offer minor fracture treatment to Attleboro, Massachusetts, residents and visitors.
What Does Minor Broken Bone Treatment Involve?
When you visit PhysicianOne Urgent Care for minor fracture treatment, one of our skilled providers will likely:
- Review your personal and family medical histories
- Ask about your injury and any symptoms you’ve been experiencing
- Perform an examination
- Order imaging if applicable (we can perform X-rays on premises)
- Apply a splint or cast to immobilize the area
More serious fractures often require surgery to realign the bones and secure them in place. So, if we determine that your break is especially severe, we may refer you to a local specialist.
When to Seek Emergency Care
PhysicianOne Urgent Care is an excellent option for minor fracture treatment. But if you’ve sustained a severe break, you should call 911 or visit a nearby emergency room. For example, you should seek emergency treatment if:
- A bone is protruding out of your skin
- You’re excessively bleeding
- You have a noticeable deformity
- You’re experiencing shortness of breath or loss of consciousness
