Broken Bone Q&A

What is broken bone care? 

Broken bone care involves taking measures to treat your injury as soon as it occurs, as well as undergoing treatments to restore strength and flexibility, so you don’t develop any long-term limitations. Depending on the severity of your broken bone, fracture care can include:

  • Immobilization with a cast, splint, brace, or walking boot
  • Bone reduction procedure to properly realign your bone (can be in-office or surgical)
  • Surgery to implant rods, screws, or specialized pins to help your bone heal properly 

Once your broken bone begins to heal over the following weeks, you can gradually begin physical therapy and personalized strength-training exercises. 

When should I see an orthopedist for broken bone care?

You can receive expert broken bone care at the office of Dr. Terrence Anderson whether you recently suffered from an injury, or have an old fracture that just never properly healed. Dr. Anderson encourages you to come in for a broken bone care evaluation if you:

  • Want a second opinion about your broken bone
  • Have tenderness, pain, or swelling and think you may have broken a bone
  • Are an athlete and need to see a sports medicine specialist during your rehabilitation

With on-site imaging available at the office of Dr. Terrence Anderson, you can often receive the details of your diagnosis on the spot, so you and Dr. Anderson can work together to design your personalized fracture care plan. 

How long does broken bone care take?

A broken bone doesn’t heal overnight. Whether you have a minor stress fracture from distance running, or a complex break from an accident, broken bone care treatments can take several months.

Full recovery from a minor broken bone, like stress broken bone, can take about six to eight weeks. But if you have a more complex fracture or need surgery, full recovery can take at least 6-12 weeks.

In any case, Dr. Anderson has you check in regularly throughout your broken bone care plan to ensure you’re healing properly, getting your strength back, and recovering from pain and discomfort.

At the office of Dr. Terrence Anderson, you can receive comprehensive broken bone care throughout your rehabilitation and beyond. Book your fracture evaluation online or over the phone today.
