When that last run of the day might not have been such a good idea.
No one plans for a broken bone. They can change your life in an instant, and often there is no time or ability to think about where you or a loved one gets care. Unfortunately, fractures happen at an incidence rate of about 1% per year. Or to put it another way, if you know 100 people, at least one of them will break something this year.
When these events happen, the fracture experts at Heywood Orthopedics are here for you and your family. Heywood Orthopedics has 5 providers skilled in the management of fracture care. We help you understand your unique injury, review options, and provide the best and safest solutions to stabilize and heal the injury.
Not every broken bone needs surgery or even a cast for that matter. But if you break a bone (which the same thing as fracturing the bone, by the way), we stand ready to help define what the optimal treatment strategy should be.
