  • Conservative Treatment

  • Surgical Treatment

Fractures of the upper extremities
There are many different types of fractures in the upper extremities - from the clavicle (collar bone) to the finger tips. X-rays will first be obtained to identify a broken bone and a physician will determine treatment based on the fracture pattern. 

Fractures of the lower extremities
There are various types of fractures that can occur anywhere from the pelvis to the toes. X-rays will first be obtained to diagnose a broken bone and a physician will determine treatment based on the fracture pattern. Some fractures allow for weight-bearing while others may necessitate non-weight bearing and the patient must use crutches or a wheelchair. 

Sports Injuries
Sprains and Strains are injuries to ligaments and muscle/tendons, respectively. These are common sports related injuries that affect the upper and/or lower extremities. X-rays are typically obtained to rule out a fracture; however an MRI is better for evaluating soft tissue injuries.
