Muscle Strain and Torn Ligament Treatment at UHealth Jackson Urgent Care – Keystone Point
If you’re dealing with a muscle strain, torn ligament, or other soft tissue injury, UHealth Jackson Urgent Care – Keystone Point can provide you with prompt, personalized care. We treat torn ACLs and MCLs, pulled hamstrings, and other similar issues, helping patients manage their symptoms and begin rehabilitation as quickly as possible.
While many soft tissue injuries can be successfully addressed without surgical treatment, it’s important to have any such concern promptly evaluated by a medical professional, considering that it takes significant expertise to determine how extensive a muscle strain or other soft injury is. If you’re experiencing any of the following, UHealth Jackson Urgent Care – Keystone Point can help you determine if a muscle strain or torn ligament is to blame:
- A sudden onset of pain after you slip or lose your balance, run or jump, lift or throw something heavy, or abruptly collide with a person or object
- A snapping or popping sensation during activity
- A limited range of motion, stiffness, or weakness disproportionate to your usual level of physical ability
- Swelling, bruising, tenderness, or discoloration
- Muscle spasms
If your symptoms are the result of a muscle strain or torn ligament, our physicians will recommend a treatment plan based on the severity of your symptoms, the particular muscle or ligament affected by the injury, and your overall activity level and lifestyle. Oftentimes, minor strains and tears can be treated with anti-inflammatory medications, stretching and strengthening exercises, and temporary activity modification. Sometimes, an immobilization device may be recommended as well.
At UHealth Jackson Urgent Care – Keystone Point, we offer diagnostic services and treatments under one roof. To consult with one of our UHealth – the University of Miami Health System physicians regarding muscle strain or torn ligament treatment, stop by today. No appointment is required.
