Can urgent care treat sports injuries?
Yes, urgent care treats sports injuries, so long as the injury isn’t life-threatening. If you believe the injury is or could be life-threatening, then you must call 911 and go to the emergency room (ER). But if you are sure that the injury is not life-threatening, then you should have it treated at an urgent care clinic. For instance, a minor hairline fracture isn’t life threatening, and you can come to an urgent care clinic like ours.
You can also go to your primary doctor for sports injuries, but that means having to make an appointment for a time when the doctor is available. This just isn’t a good idea when you have an injury like a fracture because these injuries can become worse if you wait to have them treated. It’s much better to go to an urgent care clinic instead where you’ll be treated on the spot, with no need for an appointment.
What sports injuries can urgent care treat?
Most urgent cares are fully equipped to handle any non-life-threatening sports injury or other kind of minor injury. Here at Priority Urgent Care, we can diagnose and treat patients for minor:
- Sprains, like a sprained ankle
- Muscle tears, like a torn shoulder
- Lacerations (cuts)
- Wounds, like puncture wounds
- Simple fractures, like hairline fractures
- And other injuries
If you or a loved one is suffering from any of the above injuries or any other kind of minor injury, then we can help here at Priority Urgent Care. You’ll receive immediate care, and in little time, we’ll have you feeling better and recovering at home. Soon after, you’ll be able to get back to your regular activities and sports.
