Urgent Care Q & A
What is urgent care?
Urgent care provides medical services on a walk-in, as-needed basis for whiplash injuries following car accidents, sore throats, headaches, colds, flus, and minor infections like sinusitis, cellulitis, and urinary tract infections that are not emergencies and not life-threatening. Urgent care can fill in the gaps when your primary-care physician is not available, such as providing refills to hypertension medication, pregnancy test or having an on-site x-ray performed for an injury.
An urgent care specialist can diagnose and treat your presenting injury, illness, infection, and symptoms. Depending on the diagnosis and prognosis, an urgent care specialist may recommend additional services available on-site or a referral to treat you on an ongoing basis.
How is urgent care different from an emergency room?
Urgent care treats minor injuries, pain, and illnesses on a walk-in basis that your primary care physician would typically address, such as:
• Sprains and injuries
• Headaches and migraines
• Plantar fasciitis
• Pneumonia, flu, common cold, sinusits
• Severe sore throats and bronchitis coughs
• Skin infections, rashes, and minor issues such as earache
• Urinary tract infections
However, you must immediately go to a hospital’s Emergency Room or call 911 if you or someone else has severe injuries or symptoms.
What kinds of diagnostics does the urgent care department at the Integrative Pain Institute use?
The Integrative Pain Institute offers state-of-the-art diagnostic technology to determine the root of your presenting condition. You may require one or more of the following diagnostics:
• On-site X-rays to evaluate identify dislocations, fractures, pneumonia, or misalignments in the spine
• Sudoscan to detect blood pressure, heart rate and neuropathies
• CT/MRI of the organs and the spine to examine tissue in detail.
• Muscle testing to pinpoint sources of injury complaints
What kinds of treatments can I receive at urgent care?
The urgent care staff at the Integrative Pain Institute diagnoses your condition and may use a variety of treatments to alleviate it. Some treatments you can receive include:
• Prescription medication
• Pain relief
• Physical therapy
• Trigger point injections
• Massage, laser, and percussion therapies
• Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation
• IV infusion therapy to alleviate symptoms of migraines, pain, nausea, and dehydration
