Sports Injuries

Sports injuries in children often occur unintentionally and unexpectedly. If your children suffer an injury related to sports and need assistance immediately, then our pediatric urgent care facility is open for assistance in treating any sports injuries. We have after hours pediatric urgent care facilities located in both Pasadena and Northridge with doctors on call.

Children engage themselves with other children of varying sizes, creating a larger risk for injury. The best defense against an injury is to make sure that your child is in shape and has gone through stretching exercises before playing, as well providing your child with the proper equipment depending on the sport played. On top of this, it is a good habit to make sure your child’s equipment is not defective/worn out.

Common Sports Injuries

  • Broken bones/Fractures

  • Ligament injuries

If your child suffers a sports injury, the best thing you could do before visiting the pediatric urgent care doctor for a thorough examination is to ice the wound.

Walk-ins are absolutely welcome with no appointment necessary. If you have any questions then give us a call @ 818-361-5437 or contact us online.
