Fractures from injuries at work or sports can be serious and need prompt medical attention. Hampton Roads Urgent Care has access to state-of-the-art X-ray and imaging machines as well as board-certified physicians to diagnose and treat your fracture. Symptoms of fractures include pain, swelling, brushing and inability to put weight on the affected area. If you experience a fracture, we encourage you to seek medical attention as soon as possible.
Sprains and strains are common injuries in which a ligament or tendon is torn. This injury can occur as a result of overuse or as an acute injury. Ligament injuries can range from mild to severe depending on the damage to the soft tissues in the area. If you have suffered a sprain or strain, the RICE treatment (rest, ice, compression and elevation) for 24 – 48 hours after can help reduce pain and swelling.
Joint dislocations occur when the ends of your bones are forced apart from their normal positions. Dislocations can be extremely painful and if you have suffered a dislocation of a joint, you should seek prompt medical attention. Symptoms of a dislocated joint include visible deformity, intense pain, swelling and immovability. Hampton Roads Urgent Care can X-ray your joint, confirm the dislocation and reduce the injury by realigning the bones into their proper positions.
