How are fractures diagnosed and treated?
First, Dr. Khaimov carefully evaluates your overall condition and assesses the extent of your injury. He asks you to describe how you got hurt and reviews your medical history.
X-ray imaging tests are the most common way to diagnose a fracture. These tests can reveal whether the bone is broken as well as the location and severity of the fracture.
Depending on the type of fracture you have, Dr. Khaimov may recommend one or more of the following treatments:
- Putting the bones back into proper position
- Stabilizing the bone with a cast or brace
- Medication to reduce pain and fight infection
- Physical therapy to restore normal function
