What Determines a Minor Injury?
You may be left wondering if your injury is life-threatening or non-threatening. This may confuse you if you are having a “true medical emergency”. However, even the most minor injuries can have potentially harmful risks and complications if the root of the cause is left unknown and untreated. Knowing when the right time to seek help can be a life or death decision, so it’s important to be aware of common signs and conditions.
A few of the most common minor injuries we treat include, but are not limited to:
- Joint Inflammation – Conditions such as acute arthritis can cause pain in multiple joints, causes of joint pain can come from broken bones, bone cancer, and more.
- Burns – Treating burns early on will prevent significant damage to the skin and may complicate the healing outcome if treatment is prolonged. Less severe burns still require the same specialized treatment as major burns.
- Blood Clots – Our office can determine blood clots using advanced ultrasound imaging or CT scans to prevent the blood blots from loosening.
- Minor Lacerations – Tinier cuts and tears in the skin may only need minor treatment such as stitches, to stop the bleeding and scarring, as well as complicating the wound to the point of infection.
- Headaches – While headaches are a frequently occurring and common ailment that is to some extent universally experienced by all of us, headaches and migraines lasting several hours should be consulted with emergency providers to discover the reason behind the pain and help alleviate your discomfort.
- Asthma/ Breathing Problems – One of the best preventative tools to reinforce our immune system for combating diseases and infections, vaccinations help our bodies create antibodies capable of fighting future versions of the disease, which was already introduced as a weakened state during the initial immunization.
