Digital X-Ray Walk-in Clinic in Narberth, PA
AFC Urgent Care Provides Broken Bone X-Rays and Injury Treatment
You can not merely “walk-off” a minor accident in many cases. Delaying medical treatment could potentially aggravate an injury, extending the time it will take to heal and giving you a more massive medical bill. If you suffer an injury today, your primary care doctor isn’t likely to have an appointment available for an x-ray of the injured area. In fact, some doctors do not have x-ray facilities at their practice. You do not need to take an expensive trip to the emergency room for an x-ray. Come to AFC Urgent Care Narberth today and access our digital x-ray. No appointment is needed seven days a week to receive an x-ray and have it read by our experienced staff. We’ll get you in and out as quick as possible instead of spending an entire day in an emergency room.
When is your x-ray service available?
The digital x-ray at our Narberth walk-in clinic is staffed by qualified x-ray technicians every day of the week. Our doctors will use the images from these x-rays to look for simple or closed fractures. If not treated immediately, the bone will not heal properly, and it could lead to other medical complications. An open or compound fracture, where the bone has pierced the skin, should be taken to an emergency room for immediate medical attention.
Should I get an x-ray if I suffer a sprain or a strain?
You should get an x-ray if you suffer a sprain or a strain. When your muscles or ligaments overstretch or tear, fractures can occur and be hidden behind these injuries. X-rays will confirm the status of your bone so the proper treatment can be applied, so you don’t reinjure yourself or make it worse. Sprains and strains are common when people play sports or work out. While uncommon, fractures can occur with these injuries. Sprains, strains, and fractures can happen when doing strenuous activities at home, like moving things around your basement or gardening. You can visit AFC Urgent Care Narberth today for immediate treatment.
Can I get an x-ray for a physical or if requested by another doctor?
Yes, if you need an x-ray for a physical or if requested by another doctor, we can help. Chest x-rays are often required for immigration physicals, another service we offer at our clinic. Our physicians or your regular doctor may ask an x-ray to diagnose severe respiratory issues like pneumonia.
Will I receive a copy of my x-rays?
After our doctors review the images with you of your injury, we will send you home with a copy of your x-ray on a CD. On request, we can also send copies to your primary care doctor or a specialist. All of our images are digital, which makes it easy to send your x-rays to other medical professionals securely.
