Common Conditions Treated at Urgent Care

You’ve burned your hand cooking. Your youngest has maybe sprained his ankle, or maybe your partner’s sore throat is getting worse. These are common conditions that occur within a family, but your primary doctor is not available. Years ago the ER would be your only option. Now urgent care facilities like Right Choice Urgent Care in Cypress, TX are available as a convenient care facility for non-life-threatening conditions. What are some other common conditions treated at urgent care?

Convenient and Cost Effective Care

A trip to the emergency room will not only take hours waiting to be seen, but the bill will be expensive. Why put yourself through all that when you can walk into an urgent care and be seen almost immediately?

After all, the definition of urgent is a “situation requiring immediate attention.” 

It will be much less expensive than a trip to the ER, and less stressful. The staff are medical professionals who will know what to do to treat your injury or condition.

The word urgent care.

Common Conditions Treated at Urgent Care Clinics

Let’s break it down and cover all the most common conditions seen at urgent care.

Sinusitis develops after an upper respiratory infection if it’s not properly treated. This is why we recommend you not wait to be seen for any of those ailments.

Urinary Tract Infections

This is an extremely common condition seen at urgent care clinics. This is a painful infection that develops when bacteria enters the urinary tract and bladder.
