3 Types of Medical Conditions That Can Be Treated at Urgent Care June 10, 2019

3 Types of Medical Conditions That Can Be Treated at Urgent Care, Bronx, New York

Urgent care services offer a fast and convenient way to obtain medical help. But some types of health issues are better suited to emergency rooms, while others are more appropriate for a visit to a primary care physician. In some cases, it may be difficult to know which avenue is most beneficial. Below are three types of medical conditions that can be treated successfully in an urgent care setting.

Common Conditions Treated in Urgent Care

1. Minor Injuries

An urgent care facility is well-equipped to treat a range of minor injuries resulting from accidents or falls. Muscle strains and sprains, broken bones, cuts and bruises, and whiplash can all receive proper attention. Less-serious burns can also be treated by an urgent care professional.

2. Non-Life-Threatening Illnesses

urgent careAny illness that is not considered life-threatening and that is typically treated with antibiotics or medication can usually be seen in urgent care. This includes the cold and flu, sore/strep throat, bronchitis, ear infections, pink eye, and urinary tract infections. Conditions with an unknown cause, such as headaches, swollen glands, or rashes, can be seen as well.

3. Gastrointestinal Issues

Gastrointestinal issues are also common in urgent care. Patients with minor to moderate abdominal discomfort, diarrhea, and/or vomiting can often receive effective treatment. Patients who have more intense abdominal pain or vomiting or diarrhea that has led to dehydration should visit an emergency room for prompt attention.
