When you are injured while playing sports or working out, you might have questions about what your best treatment option is. Should you go to the emergency room? Should you wait until you can get an appointment with your primary care doctor? Should you just try to tough it out? Many athletes are quite accustomed to suffering minor injuries, and might be tempted to not seek treatment at all. This option poses a risk of improper healing or long healing times, which can be particularly detrimental to someone often engaged in sports.
