Urgent Care vs. Emergency Care
Sprains and strains are common injuries that affect ligaments and muscles. A ligament is the tissue that connects a bone to a joint. A sprain is an injury that has occurred to a ligament, while strains are injuries to muscle that have been overstretched or torn.
To determine if you have a sprain or a strain, symptoms will typically include:
- Pain, swelling and bruising
- Feeling a slight pop in a joint
- Limited mobility to move a joint
Not all injuries require a trip to the emergency room. Minor sprains and strains can be treated at Jupiter Medical Center Urgent Care. Our staff will get you on the path to healing and better health.
