MedRite Urgent Care Offers Convenient Muscle Strain Treatment in Manhattan
MedRite Urgent Care offers fast and convenient muscle strain treatment to residents and visitors of Manhattan at our state-of-the-art facility. The term muscle strain is used to describe the overstretching and tearing that can occur due to overuse or improper use of a muscle. Also referred to as a pulled muscle, strains typically occur in the hamstrings, shoulders, neck, and lower back, though they can affect any muscle.
Muscle Strain Treatment Options
Though they often resolve on their own within a few weeks, muscle strains can cause myriad bothersome symptoms. Typically, a strain results in pain, swelling, soreness, stiffness, muscle spasms, and limited mobility of the affected muscle. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, MedRite Urgent Care can help you find relief. When you visit us, a doctor will examine your injury, ask about your symptoms and possible causes of your strain, and make recommendations for treatment and prevention of future injuries. These may include:
- Alternating hot and cold packs
- Over-the-counter pain medication
- Chiropractic care
- Elastic bandaging
- Physical therapy
If physical therapy is suggested as a part of your muscle strain treatment, you can visit an onsite physical therapist right here at our urgent care center.
