FRACTURES

Most of us will suffer from a broken bone at some point in life. Most fractures are caused by a bad fall, car accident, or sports injury. People with underlying illnesses, such as osteoporosis, tend to have weaker bones and may have a higher risk of fractures. Stress fractures are also common causes of broken bones. You can reduce your risk by wearing the right padding, stretching, and practicing good technique.

TREATMENT OPTIONS

Our physicians will determine the severity of your fracture by taking an X-ray or MRI. They can then provide you with the best treatment plan. Your bone may need to be set in the proper place. For more serious fractures, surgery may be required to install pins, plates, or rods to hold the bone in place.
