Sports Injuries

At Primary Care Center, we offer diagnosis and treatment of sports-related injuries. The most common type of sports injury is ankle sprains or strains. Other common sports injuries include fractured bones, lacerations, and bumps and bruises.

Most ankle sprains and strains are initially treated with rest, ice, compression, and elevation. In severe cases, non-weight bearing activities are encouraged and crutches may be recommended. Compression, which eliminates notion around the ankle joint, may require that the injured athlete wear an elastic bandage, splint, short leg cast, or brace.
