Do I Need an X-Ray?
The most common issues that require x-rays are broken and fractured bones. Your bones are rigid, and can “give” a little when outside force is applied. But, too much force results in the bone cracking or breaking, depending on the amount of force. If you are in a serious accident like an automobile accident the bone may break completely, or even shatter. The professional physicians at our North Haven Beyond Urgent Care location can provide the needed x-ray services and treatment you need.
Common Bone Fractures
There are various types of fractures that can occur. Some of the most common include:
*Oblique fracture – A fracture that results in an angled pattern.
*Transverse fracture – A broken bone with a horizontal fracture line
*Comminuted fracture – In this fracture, the bone has shattered in at least three place
*Open, compound fracture – The broken bone has pierced the skin due to the trauma. The bone may visible in the wound.
*Stable fracture – The broken bones still line up well.
It is likely that you have fractured or broken a bone if:
*You experience intense pain when you move the injured area
*There is tenderness and swelling near the injured area
*There is a visual deformity, a limb looks out of place or has punctured the skin
*If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, it is imperative you seek medical attention. Please call us at: 203-456-8000. Our North Haven Urgent Care office will x-ray the injury to diagnose the problem.
