Sprains, Strains & Broken Ankle Treatment in Narberth, PA

When you think “urgent care center" you might think we only deal with colds or bad coughs. While our board-certified physicians are highly skilled at treating these medical issues, they also treat a variety of other issues. This includes sprains, strains, and broken ankles.

Avoid the high costs and long waits of an emergency room without sacrificing high quality care by visiting AFC Urgent Care Narberth instead. Waiting days for your primary care physician isn’t practical while suffering from one of these injuries. A delay could result in a further, more debilitating injury.

At our walk-in medical clinic, you never need an appointment to see our physicians or access any of our services. Quite often visiting our facility will cost a third less when compared to an emergency room.

Strains, sprains and broken ankles

An issue we often see in the Narberth area are injuries to ankles. These sometimes painful injuries can be caused by participating in sports or pushing yourself too hard while working out or training. No matter how the injury was caused, it’s important to receive prompt treatment. If delayed, you could injure yourself further and develop long term pain. It could also affect your overall range of movement.

Sprains, strains, and broken ankles can be serious medical conditions. Each one should be checked out by a medical professional to determine the best treatment plan.

Sprains

Sprains occur when you damage the ligaments that connect your bones together in your body. When these ligaments get overstretched or torn, a sprain occurs. This can be incredibly painful, even while resting. This pain multiplies when you try to walk, run, or make sudden movements. Not all sprains are major injuries, but all should be checked out so they can be properly treated. A large, undiagnosed tear in a ligament can develop into an even worse injury if untreated.

Strain

When you move your bones, you use your muscles and tendons. These parts of your body can be easily injured. When people say they “pull" their muscle, they have probably strained it. Strains are often the result of not properly stretching. Before you work out, train, or play a sport it is highly suggested you stretch the muscles you plan on using. While strains are more commonly seen with your hamstrings or your back, they can occur with any muscles or tendons. This includes the muscles and tendons that move your ankle.

Break

Compared to the other two injuries, a broken ankle is the most serious. This injury must be seen immediately or you risk further injury and long term chronic pain. At AFC Urgent Care Narberth, we have an onsite digital x-ray available to our doctors. This powerful diagnostic tool allows our physicians to quickly diagnose a broken ankle. We can at your request also forward these images to your primary care doctor to be put into your medical record. With a quick and accurate diagnosis, you can receive the treatment you need to prevent further injury and begin your recovery.

Our extended hours and weekend hours make us very convenient to visit. No appointment is required, so you can fit us into your schedule and not the other way around. We accept most major insurances and have self-pay options available for those with no insurance. Questions regarding our services? Call our friendly staff at (484) 270-8600 and we’ll do our best to answer any question you might have. We look forward to serving you!

    AFC Urgent Care FAQs

    • Why choose AFC for Urgent Care?

      With state-of-the-art centers and a professional medical team, AFC provides on-site X-rays, labs, procedures, and more!

    • What's the difference between AFC Urgent Care and emergency room services?

      Urgent care is for medical conditions that require prompt attention but do not pose an immediate threat to your health or life. Here is a simple rule of thumb: if your medical issues(s) are life threatening, call 911, or go directly to a hospital emergency room. If not, an urgent care center such as AFC is an excellent alternative.
