WILL I NEED AN X-RAY?
A high intensity of pressure on a bone can cause it to fracture or break completely, which is where the X-Ray comes into play. The most common cases that need an X-ray are broken/fractured bones. Many causes for these high-intensity breaks are car accidents, elevated falls, or serious accidents that cause severe damage to the bone. It is important to use an X-Ray to see the exact bone itself to make a proper diagnosis. Docs Urgent Care in Fairfield, CT are to provide professional eyes to look at your injuries and give the proper treatments.
Common Bone Fractures
Listed below are various types of bone fractures, such as:
Comminuted fracture- This fracture occurs under high intensity pressure where the bone is broken in 2 or more areas.
Oblique fracture- This is fracture happens in angled patterns that are often seen as 45 degree breaks.
Open, or compound, fracture- This fracture can be visibly seen where the bone itself is protruding out the skin.
Stable fracture- This kind of fracture means the bones can still align with one another. Transverse fracture- A fracture that is perpendicular to the shaft (long part) of the bone.

You may be feeling:
- Sharp pain when moving the injured area
- Dark colored bruises developing
- You are tender to the touch/ welling
- Visibly see the bone punctured through the skin or your bone looks abnormal/ out of place
