Fractures & Dislocations Q & A

Therefore, if you face any such problem, consult our FamUrgent Care hospitality to treat your matter. This is the matter of urgency so delaying the case would cause unusual and unhealthy problems.

People usually do not understand the basic difference between them. Let us explain you ‘fracture’ and ‘dislocation’ separately.

Fractures:

Fractures are basically the breakage of bones, resulting in swelling, tenderness, deformity, unbearable pain, discomfort, and bleeding. It is a bit less unpleasant than deformity. There are two categories of fractures:

Open Fracture:

When the skin is torn and broken.

Closed Fracture:

Closed fracture refers to the cut, abrasion or tearing of the skin.

Dislocations:

It happens with discolouration around the area, immovable joint; the affected area becomes unbendable with pain, bruising, and instability. 

Let us discuss the step you should take in order to take to treat your fracture and dislocation. The foremost step is to go for an X-ray as soon as you feel discomfort in the joints. FamUrgent Care gives best and urgent assistance to the patients who come for an emergency. Half of the diagnosis is made upon the report of the X-Ray.
