Sports Injuries

Sports are a great way to keep in shape, as they offer both exercise and fun at the same time. However, those who play sports know that sports injuries do sometimes occur, in both the mildest of activities and the toughest athletic competitions out there.

One common mistake that athletes making is trying to “work through” the pain. If a sports injury has occurred, further activity may do additional harm. Urgent care should be sought if any of the following symptoms are present:

  • Severe pain
  • Swelling
  • Numbness
  • Inability to bear weight
  • Pain or a dull ache in conjunction with swelling, joint abnormality, or instability

At Urgent Care LA, our doctors will evaluate and treat your sports injury. The urgent care doctors will notify and consult with the athlete’s physician and will consult with specialties if necessary. If further action is needed, our urgent care doctors will refer you to a sports injury specialist.
