Muscle Strain Treatment for Patients of All Ages in Attleboro, MA
While most muscle strains can be treated at home, severe and long-lasting strains may require medical care. If your strained muscle is bruised or swollen, unable to bear your weight without pain, or hasn’t improved after a week of at-home care, visit PhysicianOne Urgent Care in Attleboro, Massachusetts. Our experienced and friendly practitioners will examine your injury and create an effective treatment plan to help you feel better as soon as possible.
Muscle Strain Symptoms & Treatment
Muscle strains can feel different based on where on the body they’ve occurred, the severity of the strain, and so forth. However, some common symptoms include:
- Hearing or feeling a ‘pop’ in your muscle when the injury happens
- Muscle pain, even while at rest
- Intensified pain and/or weakness when you load the muscle
- Redness, bruising, and swelling of the affected muscle
In most cases, strained muscles resolve on their own with rest, self-care such as hot or cold compresses, and gentle movement. However, if the pain is unbearable or your symptoms don’t ease after a few days, you may need medical treatment.
At PhysicianOne Urgent Care, we can assess your injury with a physical examination and, if necessary, imaging such as X-rays. For severe muscle strains, your provider may prescribe muscle relaxers, physical therapy, or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). If we determine the injury is more significant than a muscle strain, we’ll provide care and treatment accordingly.
