Trauma can occur from any injury resulting in enough force to cause a fracture or significant damage within the body. Common causes of fractures include motor vehicle accidents, sports injuries, and falls. Simple fractures sometimes require only casting or splinting, while severe, complex fractures often require surgical intervention.
The types of fractures we see include:
- Non-healing fractures
- Fractures with deformity/angulation
- Fractures of the pelvis and acetabulum (hip joint)
- Joint (intra-articular) fractures
- Foot and ankle fractures
- Post-traumatic reconstruction
Many of the physicians at Colorado Springs Orthopaedic Group have the expertise to handle all types of fractures and provide treatment to restore bone health. Along with a thorough physical examination, digital X-rays help our doctors diagnose and treat fractures quickly. Once a diagnosis has been made, our doctors will develop a personalized treatment plan best suited for your injury.
