Acute Care Q & A

What is acute care?

The doctors at CrossRoads Family Medicine provide acute care to treat your injuries and illnesses immediately. Acute care is the medical practice of healing easily diagnosed and treated conditions like sprains, strains, and sore throats. Osteopathic acute care can also help you find relief when you wake up with severe pain in your neck or back that limits your range of motion.

 

What conditions does acute care address?

Acute care is suitable for a wide range of illnesses and injuries, such as:

Injuries

  • Sprains and strains
  • Simple fractures
  • Cuts and lacerations that need stitches
  • Sports injuries
  • Injuries from car accidents, including whiplash

Illnesses

  • Sore throats including strep throat
  • Ear infections
  • Colds and flu
  • Gastrointestinal illnesses that cause vomiting or diarrhea
  • Urinary tract infections that cause painful urination

 

What should I expect from acute care?

The team at CrossRoads Family Medicine offers expert medical care with a friendly bedside manner when diagnosing and treating acute injuries and illnesses. The doctors provide consultations and physical exams to diagnose your illness and any underlying issues that are contributing to your discomfort.

You can count on the team to talk to you about your wellness and discuss your treatment options. They’ll answer your questions in an easy-to-understand way so you can make an informed decision about your health care.

The team offers prompt and effective treatments, including medication to ease your symptoms and help your body fight off viral and bacterial infections. They can immobilize injuries like sprains and simple fractures and provide advice on caring for your injury and resting while your body heals.

In addition, the team provides osteopathic adjustments and manipulations to reduce painful symptoms and improve your body function. While osteopathic adjustments are often part of an ongoing treatment plan, they also frequently provide immediate relief for pain in your neck or back.

If you’re experiencing chest pain, having trouble breathing, or you have a compound fracture or head injury or other potentially life-threatening conditions, you should call 911 or go to your nearest emergency room to get treatment.
