Accidents happen all the time in sports, from practices to major games, from pee-wee to elite levels of competition. Sports injuries can vary in scope and size, from bumps and bruises to sprains and fractures. Rather than spending your afternoon and evening in the waiting room at the ER for your turn to be seen, many sports injuries can be treated at your local walk-in urgent care center in less time and for a fraction of the cost. With a full, on-site digital x-ray and radiology department, our board-certified physicians can often treat you in a single visit.
Types of Sports Injuries Treated at Our Cheltenham Urgent Care
With a simple set of x-rays, our physicians will be able to determine the exact cause of your pain and location of your injury, allowing us to provide you with the most effective treatment to get you back on the field and in the game as quickly as possible. Some injuries we treat include:
- Muscle sprains and strain
- Bone breaks and fractures
- Tendon injuries
- Cuts and bruises
Digital x-rays are more efficient than traditional films, taking under one minute to process and digitize instead of waiting hours for the line in the darkroom to shorten for the films to be chemically developed. Digital scans also remove any guesswork or errors that can occur when developing film, with sharper images and the ability to move about the scan, catching even the smallest injuries for diagnosis and treatment.
