Signs of a Broken Bone
It’s tough to know if you’ve broken a bone without receiving X-ray imaging, but there are a few tell-tale bone fracture signs to look out for following an accident. For example, you may require broken bone treatment from a medical professional if:
The injured area is painful and swollen, or there is a visible deformity
It is very painful (or impossible) to put weight on or move the injured area
There was an audible snap or grinding noise when the injury occurred
Some types of bone fractures are minor and may cause less obvious symptoms. As a general rule of thumb, you should always seek medical care if you have an injury that does not significantly improve with self-care measures like rest, ice therapy, and over-the-counter medicines. Toward that end, you should call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room if an injury involves heavy bleeding, loss of consciousness, or bone that breaks through the skin.
