Find Urgent Care Treatment for Sprains in Turtle Bay, NY

Located in Turtle Bay, New York, we offer fast, complete medical care for unexpected injuries like sprains—providing you with the prompt treatment you need to start feeling better, faster.
Sprain or Break?
Unlike a bone break, sprains occur when ligaments that stabilize a joint are overstretched; sometimes to the point of tearing. While pain after an injury is a good indicator of a sprain, you may also experience symptoms like swelling or bruising around the affected limb. Whether you’ve suffered a possible sprain or break, seeking prompt treatment can help reduce unnecessary delays and movement—both of which can add to your injury.
Same-Day Sprain Treatment
In addition to accepting walk-in appointments every day during extended hours for non-emergency illnesses and injuries, MedRite urgent care centers are home to state-of-the-art X-ray departments. As part of the diagnostic process for injuries, our certified technicians may take and process your X-rays to rule out a minor fracture and ensure you benefit from the best medical treatment for your sprain. To aid healing, your MedRite provider will likely recommend the PRICE (protection, rest, ice, compression, elevation) method as well as offer detailed home care instructions for your sprain once pain and swelling subside. You can also take an over-the-counter pain reliever, if needed.
If you need treatment for a sprain, visit MedRite Urgent Care in Turtle Bay today. We accept most major insurance plans and do not require referrals.
