Muscle Strain Treatment for Patients in & Around Southbury, CT
Did you hurt yourself recently, maybe playing a pickup game of basketball or helping a friend move? Are you experiencing pain, swelling, weakness, and muscle spasms? Are you having trouble moving the affected body part? If so, chances are good that you’ve strained a muscle. Muscle strains occur when a muscle or tendon overstretches or tears, often due to repetitive motion or a strong impact.
If you’re in Southbury, Connecticut, or the surrounding area, you can turn to PhysicianOne Urgent Care for muscle strain treatment. We’re a trusted immediate care provider that’s been in operation since 2008, and we offer our services on a walk-in basis for our patients’ convenience.
What Does Muscle Strain Treatment Involve?
In many instances, muscle strains can be treated conservatively, without the need for surgery. Treatment may involve:
- Taking anti-inflammatory pain medication
- Icing the muscle using cold packs
- Elevating the injured body part
- Compressing the muscle using an elastic bandage
- Attending physical therapy
The experienced providers on our team will be able to recommend an appropriate course of treatment based on your specific condition and lifestyle.
