Our lives are busy. Many of us don't have a lot of time for regular exercise – so short, extreme bursts of activity our bodies experience over the weekend can prove to be harmful. If you’re one of the millions heading out on Saturday morning for your only weekly physical activity, there are some injuries you’re more likely to encounter.
If your weekend unexpectedly includes a twisted ankle, pulled muscle, or a broken bone, there’s no need to wait until Monday for medical attention. Walk in to one of the Urgent Team’s Family of Urgent Care & Walk-in Centers. Most of our centers offer weekend hours with no appointment needed – saving you both time and money versus visiting the emergency room.
Monday through Friday, our schedules are packed from the moment we rise until the minute our head hits the pillow. With so many obligations, meetings and appointments, the weekend is our time play! We’re a generation of weekend warriors and there’s a lot of fun to fit into 48 hours.
Whether heading out for a run or bike ride, shooting hoops, or wading into the shallows to go fly fishing, there’s no doubt the weekend is our favorite part of the week. Unfortunately, sometimes our enthusiasm doesn’t quite work out like we planned.
