According to the United States Food and Drug Administration, 7 out of 10 Americans get an x-ray each year. While some of those people are receiving dental x-rays, many are part of the 6.8 million Americans who break a bone each year. Breaking bones is no fun at all, but t if you find yourself in this situation, UNI Urgent Care is here to help!
All of our UNI locations are equipped for on-site x-rays, as well as treating sprains and fractures with splints and casting.
The FDA has some tips for anyone needing an x-ray:
- Ask your healthcare professional how an X-ray will help.
- Tell the X-ray technologist in advance if you are, or might be, pregnant.
- Ask if a protective shield can be used.
- Know your X-ray history.
Please visit any of our six UNI locations if you are injured or believe you are in need of an x-ray. No appointment needed, walk-in, get evaluated, and feel better!
