Evaluation of most traumatic injuries (falls, car accidents, limb or joint pain) X-ray imaging is appropriate. Splinting if necessary and appropriate orthopedic referrals.
Doctors can usually recognize most fractures by examining the injury and taking X-rays.
Sometimes an X-ray will not show a fracture. This is especially common with some wrist fractures, hip fractures (especially in older people), and stress fractures. In some cases, such as a possible wrist fracture with an initially normal X-ray, your doctor may apply a splint to immobilize the area and order a second X-ray 10 to 14 days later when healing can make the fracture visible.
