A simple fracture, also called a closed fracture, occurs when a bone breaks but does not produce an open wound. The primary symptom of a broken bone is pain at the site of injury. You may also experience swelling, bruising, or loss of function around the area of the fracture. If you have symptoms of a broken bone, it’s important to consult a physician as soon as possible to receive an accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment to ensure proper healing.
At AOSMI in Freehold, NJ, our skilled and experienced physicians can diagnose your fracture using an X-ray or other type of imaging scan. In many cases, simple fracture treatment will involve one or more of the following:
- Splinting, to immobilize the bone
- Bracing, to provide support to the bone
- Casting, to protect the bone while immobilizing it
In severe cases, surgery may be considered to realign or stabilize the bone so it can properly heal. AOSMI’s orthopedic surgeons can help you understand your treatment options and determine which option is most suitable for you.
