Joint Pain Treatment Available Every Day in Spring Valley, NY

Joint Pain Spring Valley NYJoint pain is very common, especially among athletes and other active individuals. Oftentimes, a sore shoulder, tender hip, or achy knee will improve with a few days of self-care. At MedRite Urgent Care in Spring Valley, New York, we generally recommend PRICE therapy for joint pain, which involves protection, rest, ice applications, compression, and elevation.

When to Seek Medical Attention

In general, you should consult with a health care professional if:

  • Your joint pain persists for more than a few days
  • Your joint pain is very severe or steadily worsening
  • Your joint is swollen, red, or warm to the touch
  • Your joint catches, locks, or buckles
  • Your joint pain is accompanied by fever, chills, or night sweats

If you’re feeling uncertain, it’s always best to err on the side of caution. Even if your joint pain is relatively mild and manageable, the early diagnosis and treatment of a condition such as osteoarthritis can help prevent joint damage from progressing. At MedRite, we make the process easy for you: Our office in Spring Valley is open every day during extended hours, and we never require appointments. We eliminate the hassles of having to schedule an advance appointment or visit a chaotic ER to have your joint pain taken care of right away.
