Sprains, strains, twisted ankles, pulled groins or worse. After a sedentary work week, injuries often occur
at weekends while playing sports, during routine exercise or just moving about the home. They can happen quickly, in one motion, or over time with repetitive movements. Often they can’t and shouldn’t be ignored.
Waiting a few days or even until Monday after a weekend injury could mean the difference between a speedy recovery or a lengthy rehabilitation.
Private medical clinic FirstMed has launched a new service by offering special Saturday hours specifically for injuries and sports medicine, so crocked athletic types won’t need to wait days to receive attention.
The clinic advertises some of the best orthopedic doctors and radiology services in the city area, ready to treat anything from sprains and twists to muscle tears and fractures. Care is available for injuries that involve the extremities (shoulders, elbows, hips, knees, ankles, etc.), hamstring strains, anterior cruciate ligament tears, damaged groins and tennis elbow. In-house x-rays and shin splints are on the spot.
Injured weekend warriors may visit FirstMed’s central clinic in the Hattyúház building near Széll Kálmán tér metro station on the red line on Saturdays from 9am to 3pm. To schedule an appointment, the 24-hour telephone is (+36-1) 224-9090.
