Certain sports injuries, such as a minor sprain, can be treated and cured with only one visit. Once the diagnosis is confirmed, a fresh sprain usually requires the application of cold to reduce swelling and treatment with acupuncture and compression will further reduce the pain. At times I have been able to get a player back in the game the next day. Anti-inflammatories can be used if needed. Depending upon the severity of the strain, additional treatments may be required. Best to have it looked at so the proper course of treatment can be prescribed.
