Finger Fracture Diagnosis and Treatment at MedRite Urgent Care Near Turtle Bay

Finger Fracture Turtle Bay NY

Even through a finger fracture can be very painful, it does not necessarily require a trip to an emergency room. The MedRite Urgent Care office near Turtle Bay is fully equipped to X-ray and treat broken fingers and toes. Available during extended hours, our outstanding team of medical professionals can provide or arrange for comprehensive diagnostic, treatment, and rehabilitative services for a finger fracture. If you go to an ER, consider that you may have to sit in the waiting room for hours as the staff attends to patients who have life-threatening conditions. Additionally, our co-pays are generally much lower than those of a traditional hospital.

To confirm a finger fracture, a medical professional at MedRite will typically examine the affected finger and inquire about your symptoms and the circumstances of your injury. X-rays, which can be taken and interpreted on the spot at our location near Turtle Bay, can allow us to view a broken bone in detail and determine the type of fracture present.

With this information, a board-certified physician at MedRite can recommend an appropriate treatment plan. Proper treatment for a finger fracture is important because it can help prevent long-term complications, such as immobility or misalignment. Usually, a finger fracture will require support to help protect the bones and keep them in their proper positions as they heal. Some options include:

  • Wrapping
  • Splinting
  • Casting
  • Buddy taping (taping a broken finger to an adjacent finger)

If necessary, finger fracture treatment may include a course of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) taken as needed to relieve pain. Our team can also develop a customized hand therapy program to complete the healing process (MedRite is the only urgent care center in New York City with in-house physical therapy program).

If you believe you may have a finger fracture, you can visit MedRite Urgent Care near Turtle Bay to receive immediate medical attention and X-rays. Because we accept most major health insurance plans and do not require referrals or appointments, we can save you both time and money.
