Splinting in Miami-Dade

For minor bone fractures and sprains that may need splinting, you don’t need to endure a long wait at a local emergency room. Instead, head to a nearby UHealth Jackson Urgent Care center to start the healing process as soon as possible.

You can walk in to any nearby UHealth Jackson Urgent Care center without an appointment and be seen quickly by a UHealth – University of Miami Health System board-certified doctor.

How Our Urgent Care Can Help

We have advanced digital X-ray capabilities at each of our centers, and every imaging scan is read by both an onsite physician and a specialized UHealth radiologist. Once our doctors determine the source of the injury, a splint may be used to help prevent further damage and reduce pain by keeping the injured part still.

The healing process for minor bone fractures and sprains varies depending on the area that is affected, severity, and many other factors. We can advise you on how long it may take for your injury to heal, help you manage any pain and swelling, and let you know when you can resume your normal activities.
