Fractures are a common problem for Urgent Care Physicians. After twenty years of practice I am still amazed at how many different ways we can break the same bone. Fractures are like snow flakes; they all look similar, but when you look closer they have subtle differences. Treatment is based on the results of previous patients (research) with similar fractures. Research is the foundation, but there is no substitute for experience.
At HMC we have splints, crutches, x-ray, casting materials, and Cortisone for injections, etc.
