Back to school season also means sports season is starting back up. 1 out of 3 families has at least 1 child that is enrolled in school sports or physical activities. We here at AFC urgent Care Beverly encourage parents to enroll their children in sports because it is a good way to keep them active & healthy. All physical sports come with a risk, so it is important to be mindful of potential injuries that your child might get.
We offer services for a variety of broken bones that are of a non-life threatening scale. the different types of fractures we treat are:
We will treat fractures on all parts of the body. We have treatment for non-life-threatening breaks as well. Mainly minor breaks. A minor break would qualify as:
- Damage to shins
We also treat other types of bone injuries such as bruises. Bone bruises occur when the bone is struck with immense force but not enough to break or fracture it.
Lacerations are deep cuts that can occur during sports. More than likely a laceration will require stitches. We will clean the wound & asses if stitches are necessary.
If your child has been involved in a sporting accident & you feel he may have a break or fracture we provide X-rays!
If you have any more questions or concerns please call us today!
