Fractures Q & A

What are fractures?

Fractures are broken bones that occur because of accidents, diseases, or normal wear-and-tear associated with aging. Some fractures are minor and require minimal treatment, while others are severe and debilitating. See the experts at Symphony Medical at the first sign of a fracture.

What are the signs and symptoms of fractures?

Common signs and symptoms you may notice with fractures include:

  • Swelling
  • Stiffness
  • Limited range of motion
  • Reduced mobility
  • Bruising
  • Redness
  • Pain
  • Visible tissue deformities

Complications due to untreated fractures include infections, ongoing pain, and bones that don’t heal the right way.

What are the risk factors for fractures?

Common factors that increase your risk of fractures include:

  • Osteoporosis
  • Playing contact sports
  • Car accidents
  • Work-related accidents
  • Falls
  • Trauma

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.

How does my doctor diagnose fractures?

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.

How are fractures treated?

Your treatment for a fracture depends on the type of fracture you have and how severe it is. Your specialist could recommend:

  • Rest
  • Ice
  • Bracing
  • Casting
  • Splints
  • Slings
  • Regenerative medicine injections
  • Resetting the bone
  • Nonsurgical traction
  • Surgery

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.
