Fall sports season is upon us and it’s that time of year when injuries mount up. Whether you’re playing football or lacrosse, if you’re playing organized sports or just for fun, injuries are an unfortunate part of the game. If you or a teammate have experienced an injury that you need addressed promptly and with virtually no wait, we can help. Our Orange or Branford urgent care center can see you virtually immediately and take good care to get you back on your feet and running again.

While the list below is not an exhaustive list these are some of the more common injuries we see and can treat:

  • Ankel sprain
  • Dislocations
  • Golf/Tennis elbow
  • Concussions
  • Dehydration

Injuries that occur during sports should not be taken lightly. While some might encourage you to walk it off or get back in the game, you know your body and should listen to it if it is telling you it can’t continue. Being competitive is great, but not when it comes to the risk of further, more serious injury.

If you’re playing your favorite sport and you run into one of these issues, come in and see our trained medical professionals who will get you fixed up right away.
