What Is a Traumatic Injury?
“Trauma” can refer to both physical and psychological turmoil. But at Total Point ER, we focus on the physical rather than emotional trauma. In brief, physical trauma refers to any event that causes a significant injury. This can be something as painful as a broken bone or something as minor as a small cut. Some smaller injuries can be patched up with at-home first aid measures, but many others require the immediate attention of a medical professional.
Which Injuries and Conditions Do You Treat?
The team at Total Point ER treats a wide range of injuries, from minor lacerations to serious concussions. No matter how insignificant you believe your condition to be, it’s always a good idea to see a medical professional to ensure the injury is not worse under the surface. Our team is well-equipped to treat patients dealing with the following types of injuries:
- Cuts and lacerations
- Head injuries
- Fall injuries
- Sports injuries
- Back pain and sciatica
- Insect bites and stings
- Animal bites
- Foreign objects stuck in the body
When Should I Go to an Injury Care Center?
It can be difficult to decide whether emergency treatment is necessary. Most people don’t want to “cry wolf” and worry their friends and family. But if you aren’t sure whether it’s an emergency, visiting an emergency clinic is probably best. If you have any inclination that you may need emergency care, you likely do need it. But, if you’re still unsure whether to make the drive to Total Point ER, look for severe symptoms. Should you or a loved one experience one or more of these symptoms after a traumatic injury, seek emergency care immediately:
- Chest pain or abdominal pain
- An open wound
- Bleeding that won’t stop
- Sudden numbness
- Difficulty breathing
- Coughing up blood
- Severe migraines or headaches
Why Quick Treatment Is Crucial
After an accident, we often feel shaken up at best and traumatized at worst. However, it’s vital to seek emergency care as soon as possible. Whether you’re getting care for yourself or a loved one, time is of the essence. Thanks to quick treatment, many patients are able to make a full recovery from their traumatic injuries. Speedy treatment is also important because a medical professional will be able to identify any underlying harm to the body. While you may not see a physical injury, there could be internal damage that isn’t noticeable right away. What’s more, quick treatment may help to alleviate some of the psychological trauma associated with a prolonged physical injury. No matter how minor your condition may seem at first, a prompt visit to the emergency room is always in your best interest.
