Muscle strains, fractured bones and sprained ligaments can hurt in similar ways, making it difficult to know what kind of injury you have. It’s important to have an injury properly diagnosed to get the proper treatment so you recover from your injury quickly without complications. We have a mobile X-ray machine available at most centers so that we can bring the X-ray machine straight into your exam room.
