Some of our patients aren’t sure what type of injury they have or when it’s important to go to the emergency room (ER) for an injury, like a fracture. Read on to learn more about sprains, strains, and fractures and how you should get them treated.
What do I do if I have a fracture?
If you believe you have a fracture, then it’s very important to consider what type of fracture it could be. Fractures are broken bones, so they’re to be taken seriously. If you believe your fracture could be life-threatening, then you must call 911 and get emergency care. For example, call 911 if the fractured bone is visible through the skin. This is a serious, compound fracture requiring emergency care.
A minor fracture isn’t always so obvious. There will likely be symptoms like swelling, bruising, a loss of function in the area, pain in the area that gets worse if you move the area or apply pressure to it, and possibly a deformity in the area. For broken ankles, these symptoms will likely be present, along with difficulty bearing weight on the ankle. For any minor fractures with these symptoms, you can get urgent care.
It’s important to have a professional check out a minor fracture because if you leave it untreated, it could become significantly worse. For minor fracture treatment near Long Beach and Los Alamitos CA, come to Reddy Urgent Care.
What do I do if I have a sprain or strain?
These are common injuries that occur when a ligament within a joint stretches or tears. When you come to Reddy Urgent Care with a strain or sprain, we’ll determine its severity and the appropriate treatment.
These injuries can be quite painful, but there are many ways of treating the pain and healing the injury. Usually, over-the-counter medication can address the pain adequately. Many strains and sprains can be treated at home with ice packs, compression, and elevation of the injured area. However, for severe sprains and torn ligaments, sometimes surgical intervention is necessary. If you do require any surgery, we’ll offer you the appropriate referral and medications.
