After being injured and suffering trauma that may have resulted in a bone fracture, it is possible that you will experience a lot of pain even if you are unable to tell if the bone is broken. However, one way to test the area is to apply pressure and see if the pain worsens. This is often a sign of a bone fracture, and you will require immediate care. At our urgent care clinic, our medical staff will diagnose the injury and determine the best course of action for treatment. Minor fractures such as hairline fractures or stress fractures may require splints or a cast while more severe bone fractures, including compound fractures where the fractured bone is extending through the skin, could potentially require more extensive treatment such as surgery.
