Broken Bones vs. Sprains

When you injured yourself, did you have a hard time telling whether it was a fracture or a sprain? If so, you’re not alone. Broken bones and sprains can produce the same symptoms—pain, bruising, and swelling—so in many instances it can be difficult to tell them apart. But despite feeling very similar, the two injuries require vastly different treatments. While a sprain can often be treated with conservative methods, a fracture will likely require a cast at minimum, and possibly even surgery. That’s why it’s so important to visit an orthopedist for treatment—he or she will be able to accurately diagnose your injury and recommend a course of treatment that’s specially tailored to your needs.
