Common Workplace Injury Treatment at Fast Track

  • Sprains and Simple Fractures – Fast Track Urgent Care is fully equipped to treat broken bones and sprains.
  • Pulled and Strained Muscles – Pulled or strained muscles can be very painful and should be examined by a professional. Common muscles to pull include your back, shoulder, groin, and calf. If you’re dealing with a muscle injury, don’t wait—visit a Fast Track walk-in clinic to get a proper diagnosis.
  • Stitches and Suturing If you suspect that your wound requires stitches or you aren’t sure, you should come to a Fast Track Urgent Care location immediately. The risk of infection increases the longer a cut goes untreated. And if you haven’t had a tetanus shot within the last 5 – 10 years—or you can’t remember if you’ve had one within that time frame—it’s critical that you get a booster. Don’t risk infection.

Our Kensington urgent care location provides full x-ray services.
