How are sports injuries treated?
Your sports injury treatment plan is entirely personalized to you. MEDHERO Advanced Urgent Care and Wellness Center has an on-site radiology department where you can get digital X-ray or ultrasound imaging to help diagnose you on the spot. Depending on the outcome of your sports injury exam and any essential imaging, your treatment may include:
- Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) or pain medications
- Rest, ice, compression, and elevation (RICE)
- Immobilization with a splint, cast, or brace
- Heat therapy or topical numbing creams
- Physical therapy or targeted exercises
- Activity modifications
The team at MEDHERO Advanced Urgent Care and Wellness Center is also certified in ImPACT®, a computerized neurocognitive testing system used to diagnose, evaluate, and manage concussions that occur during sports. If you or your child took a blow to the head or suffered from an impact collision on the field, your practitioner may recommend going through a concussion evaluation.
MEDHERO Advanced Urgent Care and Wellness Center welcomes walk-in evaluations if you have a sports injury, or you can schedule an appointment online or over the phone.
