Muscle Strain Treatment for Patients in & Around Southbury, CT

Muscle Strains Southbury CTDid 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
  • Resting

The experienced providers on our team will be able to recommend an appropriate course of treatment based on your specific condition and lifestyle.

Convenient Walk-In Care

Primary care providers typically don’t offer same-day scheduling, but if you’re experiencing a muscle strain, you probably don’t want to wait long for treatment. Luckily, when you turn to PhysicianOne Urgent Care, you can get the treatment you need without having to make an appointment. Visit our Southbury immediate care center 365 days per year—we’re located at 900 Main Street South, next to Sacred Heart Church and across from the Southbury Green Shopping Center.

"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."
