How are muscle strains treated?
A muscle is “strained” when it stretches or tears during physical activities like lifting heavy objects, running, jumping, or throwing. The symptoms of a muscle strain may include pain, swelling, and muscle spasms. Treatment will vary according to the extent of the strain and where it is located in the body – less serious cases can often be relieved through rest, over-the-counter pain relievers, and ice packs, while patients with more serious strains may require bracing or splinting.
At STAT MED Urgent Care, the emergency medicine background of our board-certified physicians, physician assistants, and nurses means we know how to efficiently provide thorough medical treatment. If you need muscle strain treatment, you can be assured that you will be seen by a qualified professional who will carefully evaluate your symptoms, confirm a diagnosis, and develop a treatment plan tailored to your specific needs.
