Oftentimes, an X-ray is as important for what it doesn’t show as what 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 several different ways, so it’s vitally important to know whether you have a fracture as soon as possible. When you visit Effingham Express Care, we will take the X-ray you need, and then, with the results in hand, walk you through your options.

Using an X-ray, the team at Effingham Express Care can identify:

  • Stable fractures
  • Hairline fractures
  • Open compound fractures
  • Comminuted fractures

Although, it should also be noted that if you have experienced a traumatic injury and you 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 that you might have broken a bone, stopping by our brand new urgent care center is an excellent first step. Rather than wait weeks for an appointment to see your family physician or heading to the emergency room when it isn’t really 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 team in Effingham, IL.
