Regardless of the sport or your skill level, injuries happen all the time during practices and games, including the initial bumps during the most beginner levels as a child, through high school, college, and intramural sports as an adult. Sports injuries come in all shapes and sizes and may be treatable at your local AFC Urgent Care center rather than spending hours in a hospital waiting room. Our center in South Plainfield has a full digital radiology department, allowing our team of board-certified physicians to diagnose and treat your injury in one quick visit, rather than going from the hospital to a specialist and back.
Sports Injuries We Treat
With digital radiology, we can quickly diagnose your injury and provide the correct course of treatment for a full recovery, getting you back on the field in no time. Some of the injuries we treat include:
- Bone breaks and simple fractures
- Bruises and contusions
- Skin lacerations and stitches
- Muscle strains and sprains
- Severe sunburns
While visiting a traditional emergency room can lead to painful, frustrating hours of waiting for imaging and analysis before seeing a doctor, our digital radiology department can process X-rays in under one minute. This takes out any of the guesswork in the chemistry of developing film, leading to crisper images and avoiding potential misdiagnosis. Digital X-rays also allow the technician to zoom in and out, finding smaller injuries that can lead to major pain issues if left untreated and providing the best relief towards a full recovery.
