When you’re injured or hurt, sometimes you need extra support to help you heal. At an urgent care center, you’ll get an x-ray and a diagnosis for what ails you, which allows you to get the proper splint, brace or crutch that will best speed your recovery.
Splints help immobilize an injury like a bone fracture or sprain.
Braces are used to support an injury or chronic condition and help you to move around with less discomfort and are sometimes worn to prevent further injury.
If you’ve been in an accident, can’t put weight on an injured leg or ankle or can’t balance without difficulty, you might need crutches.
If you think you have an injury that needs a splint, brace or crutch, and want to speak with a medical professional about your options, stop by your local vybe urgent care and be seen today.
