Bone Fracture Clinic
Our after hours fracture clinic services the Albury-Wodonga region for rapid and after hours assessment. As you may know, fractures can vary widely from person to person, and will require different types of treatment. Fractures can be caused by many types of activities, but are commonly seen in sporting incidents, or any instances causing trauma to a body part.
A fracture, also known as a broken bone, is the same as a break or a crack. A bone may be completely fractured or partially fractured in any number of ways (crosswise, lengthwise, in multiple pieces).
Fractures can either be complete or partial, and open or closed.
It can sometimes be hard to tell fractures apart from dislocations, and symptoms generally vary according to the severity of the injury. Symptoms may include painful swelling, bruising, deformity, or inability to use the limb.
