The Provider to Choose for Prompt Muscle Strain Treatment in Medford, MA

Picture of an older man holding the right side of his neck and frowning.Are you experiencing muscle pain and reduced range of motion? If so, chances are good that you strained a muscle. Fortunately, if you’re in Medford, Massachusetts, you won’t need to go far for treatment. PhysicianOne Urgent Care’s local immediate care center offers prompt care for muscle strains every day of the year without the need for an appointment.

What Are the Signs of a Muscle Strain?

As was mentioned above, muscle strains often cause pain, which typically develops suddenly. Other muscle strain symptoms include:

  • Bruising
  • Swelling
  • Stiffness
  • Weakness
  • Muscle spasms

How to Treat Muscle Strains

Muscle strain treatment will depend on the severity of the strain. Individuals with mild to moderate muscle strains can often find relief from their symptoms by:

  • Taking pain relievers or anti-inflammatory medication
  • Using ice/heat therapy (it’s often recommended to apply ice for the first three days after an injury, then switch to heat)
  • Elevating the injured body part
  • Wearing a compression bandage
  • Periodically resting the muscle

More severe muscle strains often require additional treatment, which might include physical therapy or even surgery. An experienced practitioner can provide you with recommendations tailored to your specific condition.

"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."
