Brief Answer:
Orthopedic examination

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I read your query and I understand your concerns.

Following is my reply:

1) Orthopedic examination generally helps in diagnosing the cause of pain.

2) It can differentiate from a fracture.

3) You can have the medicines given and wait for atleast another 2 weeks.

4) X-ray Cannot be done. You can opt for MRI if really necessary.

5) A good examination by an orthopedician can differentiate from fracture.

Let me know if you have anymore questions.

Regards,
Dr. Mahesh Koregol
