What to Do If You Have a Muscle Strain in Ridgefield, CT

Muscle strains can be painful, but most can be treated at home using the RICE method, which involves resting the muscle, icing it, compressing it, and elevating it. If your pulled muscle has significant bruising or swelling, you cannot put weight on the injured muscle, or you haven’t seen any improvement after a week of at-home remedies, come to PhysicianOne Urgent Care. Our facility in Ridgefield, Connecticut, is open seven days per week and staffed with experienced practitioners who can provide top-notch muscle strain treatment.

Medical Treatment for Pulled Muscles

When you come to our urgent care center with a muscle strain, the practitioner you see will conduct a full physical examination to learn more about your symptoms and the mechanics of your injury. While X-rays can help determine if the strain is a more serious condition, like a fracture, they are not always necessary. However, if your practitioner does recommend an X-ray, you can get that done right in our urgent care center for your convenience.

In some cases, your practitioner may want to splint your injury or give you crutches to keep weight off the muscle until it has fully healed. Physical therapy is also a common recommendation to help you recover from the injury. Once we’ve finished evaluating you, we’ll send you home with a comprehensive treatment plan and encourage you to come back to our facility if the injury does not improve.

"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."
