AFC Urgent Care Pembroke Pines treats sports injuries for both children and adults – all on a walk-in basis!

Many people have figured out how convenient and affordable urgent care centers can be when they need quick medical attention. But don’t settle for just any urgent care.

What should you do if your child gets sick and your doctor’s office is closed? According to a major health insurance company, if your condition isn’t life threatening, but you want to see a doctor right away, then visiting an urgent care center may be your best choice. AFC Urgent Care is the best choice because a doctor will always see you – unlike other urgent care facilities that may use non-physician staff. We also accept most insurance plans and do not charge exorbitant ER fees like some hospital-owned urgent care centers.

At AFC Urgent Care in Pembroke Pines we diagnose and treat sports-related injuries, such as sprains, strains, fractures, cuts and bruises. We are fully equipped with on-site X-Ray, bandages, and splints to ensure complete care of your injury.

Here are some preventive tips from the CDC:

  • Make sure you child uses the correct athletic equipment for their sports activity.
  • Practice makes perfect: Have children learn and practice skills they need in their activity.
  • Be aware of the outside temperature, and allow time for your children to adjust to hot temperatures. Also, keep a close watch to make sure children are hydrated and dressed appropriately.
  • Always communicate positive safety messages. Be a good example.
