Does urgent care handle sports injuries?
Yes! Urgent care can handle any kind of sports injury so long as it’s minor. This means that so long as you’re absolutely sure that the injury is not life-threatening, you can go to urgent care for treatment. For instance, minor cuts that need stitches can be handled by urgent care. But for more serious injuries like cuts that are bleeding uncontrollably, you absolutely must dial 911 and go to the ER (emergency room).
You might be thinking that you could go to your primary care physician for common, minor sports injuries, and you certainly can, but urgent care can provide better service in this area. With your primary care physician, you’ll have to make an appointment and accommodate the doctor’s schedule even though your situation is urgent. If you have a minor cut that needs stitches, you’ll want to have it stitched up right away at an urgent care clinic where you won’t even need an appointment for service.
