When You or Your Child Needs Emergency Treatment for a Sports Injury
Playing sports is a great way to get the exercise you need to keep fit and healthy while doing something you truly enjoy. But participation in sports comes with certain risks, and it’s very common to sustain injuries, sometimes serious.
When that happens to you, South Shore ER is here to provide the rapid care and treatment that you or your child needs to avert any immediate danger, and move onto recovery from a sports-related injury.
Our ER doctors treat all types of traumas that you may suffer while engaging in sports, including broken bones, muscle strains, sprained ankle or wrist, dislocated shoulder, and head injury, such as concussion.
Important: If you or another person suffer a head injury while playing sports or at any other time, get examined immediately by your doctor or at our Emergency Room, especially in the case of a loss of consciousness for any length of time.
