Ouch! – The Season of Sprains
Sprains happen to all of us. It can happen when you’re carrying in groceries, when your foot catches the end of the couch, jumping on the trampoline, or as you’re scoring the winning run into home plate.
We know sprains are going to happen, but what you may not know is CommunityMed Urgent Care can help you for a lot less than the ER.
Sprains are common injuries that we see a lot of patients for and help is close! CommunityMed Walk-In Clinics are in the neighborhood where you live, work and play.
A sprain is the stretch or partial tear of ligaments which connect two bones. Sprains usually are caused by injuries that involve turning, twisting, or stopping suddenly, such as twisting an ankle. A Back Sprain is also common. The lumbar or lower back bears much of the body’s weight during walking, running, lifting, and other activities.
Throughout the year, youth and adults suffer from sprains in their ankles, wrists, back and knees when they participate in sports. Games and tournaments happen throughout the year, at night and on the weekends. CommunityMed is open late and on weekends for your convenience!
Just as fast as it happened, you’ll be getting fast relief!
When you’re walking across the soccer field and you step into a hole, you jam a finger, or injure your wrist
