When Should My Pain Be Diagnosed By a Doctor?
When a patient is in pain, they often wait too long to seek relief and minimize their symptoms, or feel they need immediate care and seek out the best place to help. Acute pain typically happens abruptly, and knowing where to seek the medical attention you need is vital.
Here’s when it may be a good idea to visit our team at Gemini Urgent Care for your pain:
Urgent Care Treatment for Your Pain
Not all signs of pain require emergency treatment, and there are many conditions that we’re able to assist you with. If you have the following injuries, you should visit our urgent care as soon as possible:
- Back pain
- Abdominal pain
- Fractures, sprains, and strains
- Colds and fevers
- Ear and throat infections
- Animal Bites
- Pain caused by foreign bodies
Acute pain can turn to chronic pain if left untreated, making it essential to get the care you need as soon as possible.
Urgent Care vs. Emergency Room Treatment
If your condition is not life-threatening, there are many benefits to seeking care at an urgent care over an emergency center. At Gemini Urgent Care, our state-of-the-art laboratory, X-ray, and CT scanner are not shared by a busy hospital, which allows us to quickly diagnose even serious ailments without a delay. This means helping you seek relief faster without waiting around for care.
If we find that your condition is in need of more intensive care, you can be transferred to an emergency facility. Additionally, if you are experiencing a medical emergency (such as chest pain or fainting), you should call 911 and seek immediate emergency attention.
