Treating Fractures and Dislocations

Fractures and dislocations can occur when a hard impact injures a bone or joint. A fracture is a break or crack in the bone. Dislocation is when two bones move out of place at their connecting joint. boy with cast on foot and soccer ball

Fractures and dislocations are often emergency situations. For injuries to large bones and joints, especially when the bone is exposed, seek immediate medical help at a hospital emergency room. Physicians Immediate Care is here to help you with your minor fractures including:

  • Broken Fingers
  • Broken Toes
  • Broken Nose
  • Broken Hand
  • Broken Ankle
  • Broken Rib
  • Broken Foot

For a dislocation, your doctor may recommend medications, a sling or splint, bone repositioning, and/or rehabilitation. Common dislocations we can treat include:

  • Dislocated Finger
  • Dislocated Shoulder
  • Dislocated Kneecap
  • Dislocated Jaw

For a fracture, you may receive a splint, brace, or cast to hold the fractured bone in place while it heals.

All Physicians Immediate Care clinics have x-ray capabilities and the resources to stabilize and splint broken fingers, toes, and other mild fractures. Find a location near you to get started on your path to recovery.

Is a fracture worse than a broken bone?

Fractures and broken bones are the same thing.  A fracture/broken bone is any loss of continuity of the bone.
