Bone Fractures

There’s no sitting around once you’ve broken a bone. Bone fractures can occur in many different ways, and getting the correct diagnosis by an orthopedist is crucial in order to heal properly. Most fractures only require short-term immobilization like casting or bracing depending on the severity of the break. Of course, surgery is always an option to straighten out bad fractures, but you’ll want experienced surgeons like those at IBJI to oversee your bone health from start to finish.

When to Address a Bone Fracture with a Doctor

In most instances, fractures hurt so much you’ll likely call your doctor right away or rush to the emergency room. Your doctor will be able to manage your pain, as well as diagnose the break. Knowing why the break happened is just as important as receiving immediate treatment. The three common causes of a bone fracture or break include: trauma to a part of the body, osteoporosis, and stress fractures (overuse). If you notice symptoms of swelling, tenderness, bruising, or deformity you should immediately contact a doctor to get an accurate diagnosis. IBJI physicians will analyze your bone fracture and select the best tools and techniques for a full recovery.
