DO I NEED AN X-RAY?
After experiencing an injury or accident, you may be wondering what kind of medical attention you need and if you should request an x-ray. Most x-ray services are provided when a broken bone or fractured bone is suspected, which can be caused from serious trauma such as a sports accident or car collison. If you are in a similar situation and fear that you have a broken bone, seek help from our professional physcians and technicians at DOCS Urgent Care of Stratford. We have the expertise and appropriate medical equipment to assist you.
COMMON BONE FRACTURES
Many different kinds of bone fractures exist, but the most common consist of:
*Oblique fracture – A type of fracture that results in an angled pattern.
*Transverse fracture – A horizontal fracture line caused by a broken bone.
*Comminuted fracture – A break in the bone that results in more than two fragments caused by high-impact trauma.
*Open, compound fracture – When there is an open wound or break in the skin directly near the broken bone.
*Stable fracture – The broken ends of the bone will still line up correctly and haven’t moved much from the correct placement.
Symptoms of a Broken or Fractured Bone
If you have recently been in an accident or experienced an injury, you are more likely to have a fractured or broken bone if you display these symptoms:
- Intense pain when moving the injured area
- Tenderness or swelling near or on the injured area
- A visual deformity (or puncture) in the injured area or if your limb looks out of place
If you are currently experiencing these symptoms, we recommend that you seek immediate medical attention. Give us a call at our Urgent Care in Stratford by calling: 203-923-2976. We will assist you by performing an x-ray and determining the seriousness of your injury.
OTHER MEDICAL CONDITIONS DIAGNOSED WITH AN X-RAY?
You may think that x-rays are simply for broken bones, but they can be used for diagnosing other medical conditions as well. These include:
*Bowel obstructions and other various stomach issues
*Congestion or fluid in the lungs
