Sprains, Strains and Broken Bones…Oh My!One of the most common injuries that we care for at Complete Urgent Care are acute extremity injuries. Ankles, Knees, wrists, elbows and shoulders are prone to frequent injury. Through many years of practice in the Emergency Room, I have seen injuries that cover the range from severe, devastating broken bones to the worst sprains/strains injuries that you can imagine.
Because our urgent care is owned and operated by ER doctors, we can treat more than the typical walk in clinic. We provide comprehensive management of common illnesses and injuries as well as offer onsite digital x-ray, electrocardiogram (EKG), stitches, incision & draining (I&D), breathing treatments, IVs and more!
