A broken bone is a common injury that can be painful. 

At CareWell Urgent Care, we're here to help you feel better fast.

We take care of many kinds of injuries, including common fractures and small breaks, for people of all ages, seven days a week. 

You won't have to wait a long time, and we'll ensure you get the proper care in no time.


Causes and Symptoms of a Broken Bone

A broken bone can happen if you fall, get hit, or have an accident. Sometimes, even if you twist or bend your bone too much, it can break.

When a bone breaks, it might hurt a lot. You might be unable to move that part of your body very well, and it could look swollen or bruised. 

Sometimes, you hear a snap or a crack when the bone breaks. If you think you have a broken bone, it's important to get medical help immediately. 


Does Urgent Care Do X-Rays for Broken Bones?

Absolutely, CareWell Urgent Care is fully equipped to conduct X-rays. 

When you visit us with a suspected broken bone, our experienced providers will conduct a thorough examination. 

If needed, X-rays will be taken to accurately diagnose and determine the nature and severity of the break. This helps us create a precise treatment plan tailored to your specific injury.


Should I Go to Urgent Care or the ER for a Broken Bone?

Choosing between urgent care and the emergency room for a broken bone depends on the severity of the injury. 

If you have a minor fracture or a non-life-threatening break, urgent care is an excellent option. 

At CareWell Urgent Care, we provide efficient, comprehensive care, saving you time and resources.

However, for severe fractures or if you suspect other complications alongside the injury, such as severe bleeding or a deep wound, it's best to seek immediate attention in the emergency room. For quick emergency care, dial 9-1-1. 


Minor Fracture Treatment Options: Tailored Care for Optimal Healing

When you come to urgent care with a minor fracture, we have options to help you heal faster. 

After confirming a fracture using an X-ray, our providers may recommend a cast or a splint to keep the broken bone still and isolated. Often, medication is also provided to reduce pain and swelling. 

In rare and severe cases, we may refer you to a specialist for further evaluation and specialized treatment.
