What is injury care?

Injury care is an area of medicine focused on addressing acute care needs. These are needs that arise with little notice, like accidents or sports injuries. When you’re hurt, you need a trusted practitioner to rely on.


When you visit Guardian Angels Health Center, they have access to your full medical record and your specific health needs. That’s important for people with chronic health conditions or mental health challenges. 


For little ones, an injury can already be incredibly stressful. Waiting to be seen in a crowded urgent care waiting room can make things even more challenging. Choosing to come into Guardian Angels Health Center ensures your child is seen in a setting they’re already familiar with. 

What kinds of issues can be treated during injury care visits?


A wide array of injuries can be treated at Guardian Angels Health Center. Some of the issues that bring people in for injury care include:


  • Sprains and strains
  • Minor lacerations
  • Contusions
  • Concussions
  • Simple broken bones
  • Sports injuries
  • Falls
  • Minor burns


These are just a few examples of injuries that can prompt the need for professional injury care. Your provider can quickly diagnose your condition and get you started on a path toward relief. 

How do I know where to turn for injury care services?


When you sustain an injury, your body is flooded with hormones that serve to trigger your flight or fight instincts. The stress that comes with an injury can alter your ability to think clearly or make fast decisions. 


Determining where to turn for injury care isn’t always a simple or straightforward process. Those same hormones that flood in during an injury can also mask pain signals. People are often in more serious condition than they believe in the moments after an injury. 


While the providers at Guardian Angels Health Center can handle numerous different types of injuries, there are some scenarios where you may need an emergency room (ER) visit as the best course of action. If any of the following apply, it’s important to have emergency medical attention:


  • Uncontrolled bleeding
  • Visibly broken bones
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Chest pain
  • Shortness of breath


Otherwise, you can visit Guardian Angels Health Center to discuss your symptoms and receive guidance on your next steps.
