It’s sometimes difficult to know if an injury is due to a fracture or something else, but experts at Symphony Medical can diagnose your condition and effectively treat it.
To find out if you have a fracture, other injuries, or more than one type of injury, Symphony Medical providers review your medical history, discuss your symptoms, and evaluate the site of your pain.
They may recommend you complete X-rays, MRIs, CT scans, bone scans, or other imaging procedures to make a final diagnosis and develop a treatment plan.
Your treatment for a fracture depends on the type of fracture you have and how severe it is. Your specialist could recommend:
If you have a fracture in your leg, ankle, or foot, you may need to use crutches for a period of time while your injury heals.
You might need more than one type of fracture treatment to ensure that a broken bone heals properly. Follow all of your fracture care instructions at home and attend scheduled follow-up visits with Symphony Medical experts.
If you need surgery to repair broken bones, your provider may recommend that you complete physical therapy sessions afterward to increase tissue strength, flexibility, and range of motion.
If you suspect you or a loved one has fractures, call the Symphony Medical office or schedule an evaluation online today.
