Our services for treating and stabilizing broken bones include x-ray, splinting, casting, and giving any slings, crutches, elastic bandages, or other equipment needed to aid in the healing and long-term fracture management plan for making a broken bone better. In addition, we can provide referrals and make appointments to orthopedic, sports medicine, physical therapy, or other specialists in Colorado that can help with long term fracture management.
Usually a break is painful and prevents you from moving the area. Tenderness, bruising, swelling, and deformity or a limb may look “out of place.” If you or your child are suffering from any of these symptoms, it is important to get them into one of ourMetro Urgent Care locations throughout Denver, to have their broken bone assessed as soon as possible.
Depending on the location and severity of your fracture, a hospital visit may be necessary. However, Metro Urgent Care will be able to aid in the diagnosis of your broken bone and direct further treatment or doctor’s visits. Most fractures take a few weeks to a few months to heal depending on the location and severity of the break. It is important to keep in mind that during the healing process, the muscles around the broken bone will likely lose some of their strength, and you may need to do specific exercises to get your mobility and strength back to normal. Metro Urgent Care can help assess the long-term plan for your broken bone as well.
