Fracture (Broken bone)

A broken bone or fracture is the same as a break or crack. A broken bone can occur in multiple ways, typically it is a result of trauma. However, overuse and diseases can weaken bones to the point of a fracture.

The main symptom of a broken bone is pain and loss of function depending on the area of the bone. Treatment can require a reduction of the bone to optimal position and immobilisation in a cast or splint for 6 weeks or more. In some cases, surgery may be required.

Visit us at Heal Urgent Care – we can help you with your fracture, from initial treatment of pain management and immobilisation all the way through to the removal of your cast and rehabilitation.
