With the fall running season coming up, Dr. Matt Bruckel gives advice on ways to avoid injuries, how to provide self-care and when you should see a doctor. There are many different types of injuries that can happen when you start running more, including overuse/chronic injuries, tripping resulting in scrapes and bruises, or even broken bones if you fall. Dr. Matt Bruckel suggests that the first 72 hours after a running injury is when you should ice it to keep down the swelling and inflammation. If it is a more serious injury, see a medical professional right away.
If you are injured or you know of someone who has had an injury while running, call Total Access Urgent Care today for medical help!
