Sports are a way of life in Texas, so don't let yourself get out of the game with an injury. In a matter of seconds, an athlete can twist, turn, fall, or be tackled just the wrong way for it to lead to an injury. When you or your child has a sports-related injury (sprains, tears, concussions, fractures, and more), come into our iCare ER & Urgent Care in Frisco or South Fort Worth, TX. Our radiology labs and other technologies can provide you with results in a matter of minutes and lead you on the way to recovery.

Seeking Medical Care
Depending on the type of injury, signs that you should seek medical treatment at the iCare ER & Urgent Care are listed below:
The symptoms of a concussion include a headache, confusion, memory loss, fatigue, loss of consciousness, dizziness, sensitivity to light, nausea, and vomiting after a blow to the head. While a concussion can often be treated in urgent care, our team may send you to our emergency services especially if you exhibit symptoms such as slurred speech, rapid or slowed breathing, seizures, difficulty walking, extreme confusion, vision problems, pupil size changes, nasal or ear fluid discharge, weakness, or a headache that continues to get worse.
Dislocations, fractures, and sprains
Signs of dislocations, fractures, and sprains are very similar and difficult to tell apart. They may include intense pain, swelling, discoloration and bruising, deformity, tingling or numbness, and difficulty moving after a fall, blow, or other high-impact injuries to a joint or bone. Dislocation, fracture, and serious sprain injuries should always be treated by a medical professional immediately.
What to Expect
When you come into the iCare in either Frisco or Fort Worth, our experienced team of medical practitioners will quickly evaluate your condition to determine where you should be treated. This will depend mainly on the location and severity of your injury, along with the intensity of your pain. For sports injuries, pain management is almost always focused on and treated first. A medical history interview and physical examination will help our physicians determine how best to treat your pain. X-rays can be taken to further examine your injury for injuries such as dislocations, fractures, or sprains. CT scans may be utilized in the case of a concussion. Depending on the type and severity of your injury, our physicians may treat it with medication, splint or cast it, use a sling, use an ortho boot, or issue crutches or a cane.
While iCare is equipped with state-of-the-art tools to care for your sports injuries, some situations require further care that may include a hospital stay. In such cases, iCare has agreements set up with local facilities that will transfer you or your child to the hospital or specialist that fits the situation. Through this arrangement, you will be able to bypass the hospital ER to an inpatient hospital bed. Our team at iCare can also make referrals to specialists, such as orthopedic surgeons, ophthalmologists, neurosurgeons, or trauma surgeons, whom you may need according to the severity of the injury.
