Prompt Treatment for Muscle Strains in Glastonbury, CT

Most muscle strains do not require medical attention. They can be effectively treated at home using the RICE method—rest, ice, compression, and elevation. However, there are certain instances when a muscle strain, or pulled muscle, may require medical treatment. These include:

  • If you heard a popping sound during the injury, which could indicate a muscle tear rather than a strain
  • If the pulled muscle isn’t getting better after a week of at-home remedies
  • If there is significant bruising or swelling at the site of the injury

PhysicianOne Urgent Care in Glastonbury, Connecticut, offers muscle strain treatment seven days per week for patients of all ages. You can come right to our urgent care center, and we’ll check out your injury to see if you need a splint or if more advanced treatments are necessary, such as orthopedic care.

What to Expect at PhysicianOne Urgent Care

You will be seen by one of our experienced medical practitioners who will learn how the injury occurred and ask about the symptoms you’re experiencing. X-rays may be recommended to rule out a fracture or see if there is swelling around the joint. We have on-site X-ray capabilities to take care of these imaging tests quickly and easily. If a muscle strain is the confirmed diagnosis, your practitioner may splint the area and then send you home with a comprehensive treatment plan that will likely include continuing the RICE method and taking over-the-counter pain relievers to reduce your discomfort.

If your muscle strain requires medical attention, come to PhysicianOne Urgent Care in Glastonbury. While our wait times are generally brief, you can expedite your visit by checking in online.

"The overall care I received was excellent! I also appreciate your affiliation with Yale New Haven Hospital."

Derby, CT

"Throughout the visit I felt like the staff really cared. The Doctor took his time talking with me about my symptoms, and I felt like he listened to all my concerns and took that into consideration when recommending the right treatment. Thank you!"

Hamden, CT

"I had to take my son in for an ear infection following a sudden change in temperament at daycare. He was inconsolable the entire car ride but when we got there and by the time we left this care facility he was back to his normal happy go lucky little two year old boy. I highly recommend PhysicianOne Urgent Care."

Westwood, MA

"I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the attention you gave me last week. My son was started on antibiotics and ear drops. Within 24 hours he began to feel better. The poor kid had been going to school in tears because he was afraid of missing any more days, but feeling (and looking) just awful! He's not been able to even think about lacrosse practice, but thanks to starting him on antibiotics, he was thrilled to return to practice today."
