When should you visit an urgent care center?
Urgent care centers are an excellent choice for non-life-threatening medical conditions that require immediate attention but do not require a visit to the emergency room.

We offer both Rapid Antigen and PCR testing for COVID-19. The Rapid Antigen test provides results within 15 minutes and is recommended for patients with symptoms or exposure in the last 5 days. PCR test results are usually available in 24 to 48 hours and is recommended for travel, surgery or certain workplace requirements.
What are the advantages of going to an urgent care center?
Urgent care centers offer many advantages over traditional medical facilities, such as shorter wait times, flexible hours of operation, and affordable pricing. Urgent care centers can often provide medical care and treatment that is on par with that offered by a primary care physician, but without the need for an appointment. Additionally, they often have X-Ray and labs on-site that allow for a more comprehensive care.
How do athletes develop chronic sports injuries?
Athletes can develop chronic sports injuries due to repetitive overuse or trauma to a particular area of the body. This can occur as a result of poor training techniques, lack of rest and recovery, inadequate warm-up or stretching, or simply due to the nature of the sport itself. Common examples of chronic sports injuries include tennis elbow, golfer's elbow, runner's knee, and shin splints. Treatment can vary depending on the specific injury, but may include physical therapy, anti-inflammatory medications, and rest.
