If you’ve recently had a serious accident or fall, you probably had an x-ray done at an urgent care or the emergency room. If you have a fracture, it is essential to schedule a follow up appointment with an orthopedic doctor, such as our orthopedic fracture specialist in Miami, or Homestead.
What is a Fracture?
A fracture is a medical term for a broken bone. A fracture can be stable (non-displaced) or unstable (displaced).
In a non-displaced fracture, the bones do not move out of place. As such, these fractures are usually considered to be not as severe as displaced fractures. Despite this, they are still often put in a cast, depending on the location of the fracture.
