What are acute injuries?

Acute injuries happen suddenly, such as accidents at home, work, or playing sports. You can’t predict an acute injury, and when one happens, it can really be disruptive and frustrating. 

Fortunately, acute injuries tend to heal quickly, especially if you reach out for help immediately. 

At EZMED Primary & Urgent Care, the knowledgeable injury specialists understand that accidents happen at the most inconvenient of times. They’re here to provide urgent care on demand for acute injuries.

What injuries qualify as acute injuries? 

Acute injuries can include almost any injury that isn’t life-threatening. Among the most commonly treated acute injuries at EZMED Primary & Urgent Care are: 

  • Cuts
  • Lacerations
  • Scrapes
  • Open wounds
  • Minor fractures
  • Ligament sprains
  • Muscle strains
  • Tendon strains
  • Dislocations
  • Burns
  • Animal bites
  • Bug bites
  • Foreign bodies in wounds or embedded in the skin
  • Eye injuries
  • Ingrown toenails 

Acute injuries can also include conditions that didn’t necessarily start as an injury. For example, an ingrown toenail may start because you wear shoes that are too tight or you’ve clipped your nails too short. 

However, that toenail can quickly become infected and painful, so it qualifies as a condition requiring immediate care. 

How are acute injuries treated?

Treatment can vary with the injury. The experts at EZMED Primary & Urgent Care are trained in the treatment of all types of injuries, and they provide expert solutions immediately on site. Some of the most common treatments for injuries include:

  • Durable medical equipment (DME) like braces
  • Casting of minor fractures 
  • Oral medications, such as antibiotics
  • Removal of foreign bodies (glass, metal, wood, or other things in the skin)
  • Topical treatments like ointments for lacerations, cuts, and other skin injuries
  • Stitches to repair minor wounds

If you have a workers’ compensation or workplace injury, the team works with the insurer to get the urgent and ongoing care you need. 

In the rare situations that the team can’t treat your injury fully — for example, a complex bone fracture that might require major surgery — they connect you with a highly experienced specialist who can help. 

The expert medical team at EZMED Primary & Urgent Care is right around the corner when you’re injured and need help. Most injuries are treatable on the spot. You can walk into the office during normal hours, and you can also reach out though the online scheduler or call the office for quick help.
