Often, an X-ray is as important for what it doesn’t show as it does. You might have experienced a traumatic injury and are concerned that you have broken a bone, and the X-ray can either confirm the presence of a fracture or tell you that your injury isn’t quite as serious. Depending on the type of injury and the extent of the problem, treatment will be attempted in several different ways, so it’s vitally important to know whether you have a fracture as soon as possible. When you visit Health First Urgent Care, we will take the X-ray you need and then walk you through your options with the results.
Using an X-ray, the team at Health First Urgent Care can identify the following:
Open compound fractures
Although, it should also be noted that if you have experienced a traumatic injury and believe your life or a limb may be in danger, you should get to the emergency room immediately. There’s no substitute for the trauma care you can receive in the hospital. However, if you’ve hurt yourself and think you might have broken a bone, stopping by one of our urgent care centers is an excellent first step. Rather than wait weeks for an appointment to see your family physician or head to the emergency room when it isn’t an emergency, come talk to our team at your convenience and learn about your treatment options. Contact us today to schedule an X-ray and receive top-quality care from our Richland and Pasco, Washington teams.
