Will I Need an X-Ray?
Fractured and broken bones are two common problems that will require an x-ray to determine their severity. Your bones may be rigid, but they may still “give” some if they are pressed upon. However, too much force will ultimately cause your bone to crack or even break completely. Serious accidents, such as high falls or car accidents, can cause the bone to even shatter. DOCS Urgent Care of Stamford is here to take a look at your injuries and provide you with any necessary x-rays or treatment.
Common Bone Fractures
There are a few different types of bone fractures, such as:
*Oblique fracture- When a fracture produces an angled pattern in the bone.
*Comminuted fracture- This type of fracture is where the bone is shattered in at least three different places.
*Transverse fracture- A fracture that results in a horizontal line in the bone.
*Open, or compound, fracture- A fracture where the bone pierces through the skin and may be visible to the naked eye.
*Stable fracture- The bones that are broken still line up well together.
Symptoms of a Broken or Fractured Bone
You probably have one of the two if you:
- Have an intense or shooting pain when you try to move the affected area
- Bruises develop around the area
- You have tenderness and/or swelling
- You can see the bone through punctured skin or your affected limb looks deformed or out of place
If you have any of these symptoms, please seek medical attention immediately. DOCS Urgent Care of Stamford can help access your injury with an x-ray and get you the treatment that you need right away, no waiting.
OTHER MEDICAL CONDITIONS DIAGNOSED WITH AN X-RAY?
X-rays can be utilized for a number of health complications, not just broken bones. We can use our digital imaging services at our Samford office to assist you with:
*Bowel obstructions and other various stomach issues
*Congestion or fluid in the lungs
