Fracture Care

Fracture Care

A fracture is a broken bone that requires medical attention. The North Alabama Bone & Joint Clinic specializes in fracture care with state-of-the-art digital x-ray.

Common Causes

Symptoms

Examination

An examination will be completed by your doctor. The best way to determine a fracture is through an x-ray. This will also help the doctor determine the type of fracture and the method of treatment.

Treatment

Recovery

The severity of the injury will determine the length of recovery. It is also important to follow your physician’s advice. After the removal of a cast or brace, activity may need to be limited. Consult your physician before returning to normal activity or beginning an exercise program.

While it may not be possible to prevent fractures, there are some things that may help to increase the strength of bones. Diet and exercise will help maintain good bone health. Including calcium and vitamin D in your diet has been proven to strengthen and maintain bone mass.
