Injury & Extensive Care Q & A

What are injuries?

Injuries involve physical damage to your body. You can injure:

  • Bones
  • Cartilage
  • Skin
  • Soft tissue (e.g., muscles, tendons)


Most injuries involve pain when they happen that can last until you receive treatment and as you heal. In many cases, injuries can also affect your mobility. 

You can get an injury from falls, car accidents, blunt force, extreme heat, sharp objects, and more. If the injury involves excessive bleeding or threatens a limb or your bodily functioning in some way, you should seek emergency care. However, the team at Family Urgent Care can treat many minor and moderate injuries in their office. 

When do I need injury and extensive care?

You should visit Family Urgent Care for injury and extensive care if you have an injury or condition that's causing serious symptoms that aren't life-threatening. With or without an appointment, you can receive a thorough evaluation and effective care right away. 

Extensive care may be necessary for:

Abdominal pain

There are many possible causes of abdominal pain, some of which are serious and require immediate medical attention. Possible causes include gallstones, indigestion, appendicitis, and stomach ulcers. 

Asthma

Asthma is a chronic condition causing breathing problems, but an asthma attack requires immediate care. 

Burns

Burns can happen because of harsh chemicals, electricity, or extreme heat. If you get tissue damage from a burn, the team at Family Urgent Care can help you manage the pain and prevent infection. 

Fractures and dislocations

Fractures are broken bones. Dislocations happen when two bones, usually in a joint, fall out of place. Both injuries can also cause damage to nerves and nearby blood vessels. 

Foreign bodies

If you or your child accidentally swallow an object or get something stuck in your ear, nose, or another part of your body, Family Urgent Care helps you locate it and remove it safely. 

Lacerations

A laceration happens when a sharp object cuts your skin and tissues.

Sprains and strains

Sprains and strains affect the ligaments and tendons near your joints. A sprain or strain can be painful and make it hard to move your joint. 

What might my injury and extensive care treatment involve?

Your treatment for an injury or a condition like asthma varies depending on its severity, location, and symptoms. The team at Family Urgent Care might use these strategies in your diagnosis and treatment:

  • X-ray imaging
  • Lab testing for infections and other complications
  • Stitches
  • Bandages
  • Casting
  • Oral or topical medications


You may also need to book follow-up appointments in person or with telehealth for continued injury care. 

To receive an accurate diagnosis and prompt care for an injury or extensive condition, call Family Urgent Care, or book an appointment online today. Walk-ins are also welcome!
