Is It a Fracture or a Sprain?

Sprains are injuries of the ligaments, whereas fractures are breaks in the bone. Unless you see signs of obvious disfigurement, which indicates a fracture, it isn’t possible to definitively determine whether you have a sprain or a fracture. Go to a walk-in clinic for an accurate diagnosis, which might require an X-ray. In the meantime, keep weight off the affected area and apply an ice pack for pain relief.

Watch this video to hear more about the differences between sprains and fractures. This healthcare provider explains how fractures can cause further damage if they aren’t treated. She also explains some of the more serious symptoms to watch out for, such as numbness and tingling.
