You’re just taken a fall or had an accident, and you’re wondering, “Is it broken?” Though the only way to know for sure whether or not you have fractured a bone is to have an X-ray or an MRI, there are some common symptoms of a fracture that you can look for as soon as the injury occurs. Commons symptoms of a bone fracture include:
We see patients with broken bones in almost every area of the body, but some locations are more prone to breaks that others. Common fractures we treat at Tennessee Orthopaedic Clinics include:
The first step to treating a broken bone is to find the exact location and type of break. Once the fracture is diagnosed, your fracture care specialist will set the bone into proper healing position and then immobilize it with a cast, sling or brace depending on the location of your injury. If the break is not displaced, a simple setting and casting is likely all the treatment needed to help your broken bone heal correctly.
For more complicated breaks in which the bone is displaced on either side of the break, the broken bone protrudes through the skin, or if other structures in the joint are damaged as well, surgery may be necessary. Our fracture care surgeons at Tennessee Orthopaedic Clinics always aim to provide the most conservative treatments possible, so we opt for minimally invasive and arthroscopic surgery whenever appropriate. Our goal is to get you back to the activities you love with as little downtime as possible.
