Managing Sprains, Strains, Broken Bones & Dislocations: Valley Urgent Care’s Expert Care

Sprains, strains, broken bones, and dislocations are among the most common musculoskeletal injuries that people may encounter in their daily lives or during sports and physical activities. These injuries can vary in severity, and prompt and appropriate medical attention is essential to ensure proper healing and recovery.

Differentiating Sprains, Strains, Broken Bones, and Dislocations

Sprains occur when ligaments, which are tough bands connecting bones, are stretched or torn. Strains, on the other hand, involve the stretching or tearing of muscles or tendons. Broken bones, also known as fractures, can be either simple or compound and require medical evaluation for proper treatment. Dislocations happen when bones are forced out of their normal positions in a joint.

Evaluation and Diagnosis

At Valley Urgent Care, we offer comprehensive evaluations for patients with sprains, strains, broken bones, or dislocations. Our experienced medical professionals will conduct physical examinations and may order X-rays or other diagnostic tests to assess the extent of the injury and create an appropriate treatment plan.

Individualized Treatment Plans

Each musculoskeletal injury is unique, and our medical team takes a personalized approach to develop treatment plans. Treatment may involve RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation), pain management, immobilization with splints or casts, physical therapy, or, in severe cases, surgical intervention.

Pain Relief and Management

Dealing with the pain caused by musculoskeletal injuries can be challenging. At Valley Urgent Care, we prioritize pain relief and management as part of the treatment plan. Our goal is to alleviate discomfort and support the healing process, allowing patients to resume their daily activities as soon as possible.
