Trauma and Injury Q&A

What types of trauma and injury are treated with urgent care?

The physicians at Neighborhood Urgent Care bring a wealth of training and experience to the practice. You have access to a wide range of diagnostic and treatment tools to determine the source of your symptoms and get you started on a treatment plan that delivers exceptional outcomes. 

Some of the trauma and injury needs that bring people in for urgent care include:

  • Sports injuries
  • Slip-and-fall accidents
  • Workplace accidents
  • Minor broken bones
  • Lacerations and abrasions
  • Animal bites
  • Back pain
  • Minor burns

These are just a few issues that are routinely treated at Neighborhood Urgent Care. 

What should I do in the event of a trauma and injury experience?

If you’re involved in an accident or sustain an injury, it’s important to try and keep calm. Begin by assessing your condition and your immediate surroundings. If you remain in a dangerous setting, try to move to safety to avoid additional harm. 

Don’t be afraid to ask for help. Most people are happy to call for help, provide first aid, or sit with you while you determine your next steps. If your child is the one who was injured, it’s important to assure them that everything is going to be alright. 

Neighborhood Urgent Care offers walk-in visits to accommodate trauma and injury needs. You’re welcome to call to find out whether urgent care is the right fit for you.

When should I seek emergency medical care for trauma and injury?

While urgent care is a great way to address a wide range of trauma and injury needs, some situations require a trip to the emergency room (ER). 

If any of the following apply, seek emergency medical assistance right away:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Chest pain
  • Uncontrolled bleeding
  • Broken bones that penetrate the skin
  • Asthma attack
