Fractures - Diagnosis & Treatment

How is a fracture diagnosed?

Your doctor should be able to diagnose a fracture through physical examinations and X-rays.

Some types of fractures, which are harder to see on X-rays, may require additional tests such as a computed tomography (CT) scan, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or bone scan.

How is a fracture treated?

In order for your bone to heal correctly, it needs to be set or repositioned and maintained in its proper position with the help of a splint or cast. The type and severity of the fracture will determine if surgery is required.

Your doctor will assess your fracture and recommend suitable treatment options for you.
