Happy Summer 2022!
MyDoc Urgent Care wishes everyone to have a fun-filled summer season. We hope you’ll get a chance to be outdoors, whether it’s a beach destination, a mountain retreat, or an exciting place to visit.
We also wish you to be safe and healthy this summer season. In this article, we’ll discuss common injuries occurring in the summertime, prevention efforts, and treatment options.
Common Summer Injuries
- Fractures or broken bones,
- Insect bites
The best prevention technique is to be mindful of the pros and cons of each outdoor activity, be aware of your body condition as well as the surroundings, and wear proper gear that fits and is best suited for a specific activity.
The sports of summer, such as diving, volleyball, baseball, soccer, hiking, rafting, and many others, all have one thing in common: they increase your risk of bone fractures, which are among the most common summertime injuries, especially in children.
When you or your loved one is injured, it’s important to SEEK CARE QUICKLY. Urgent care centers are the better alternative than ERs for minor fractures as they are equipped with x-ray capabilities, radiologists who can read the x-ray images in real time, and are stocked with wound care supplies. Therefore, timely diagnosis and treatment can be available and applied appropriately.
MyDoc Urgent Care Centers are here for you and your family every day of the week. Please keep us in mind when you need healthcare services. We wish everyone a very enjoyable and safe summer.
