Your healthcare providers will give you instructions when you leave the emergency department. Make sure you have the answers to the following questions before you go:

  • How long will I need to be in a cast?
  • Do I need physical therapy while I’m in the cast?
  • Do I need physical therapy after the cast comes off?
  • Should I see any other specialists (like an orthopaedic surgeon or neurologist)?
  • Do I need more X-rays?
  • When do I need to follow up, and with whom?
  • Do I need prescription medications?
