Minor cuts and sprains are common injuries that can happen during everyday activities or sports. At PrimeCare Urgent Care, we specialize in providing prompt and effective treatment for these injuries to help you recover quickly and safely.

Treatment for Minor Cuts

Minor cuts, scrapes, and abrasions can occur from accidents, falls, or sharp objects. At PrimeCare Urgent Care, our healthcare providers are skilled in assessing and treating these wounds to prevent infection and promote healing. Treatment may include:

  • Cleaning and Dressing: Thorough cleaning of the wound to remove debris and bacteria, followed by applying an appropriate dressing or bandage.
  • Stitches or Staples: If the cut is deeper or requires closure to heal properly, our providers can administer stitches or staples as needed.
  • Tetanus Shot: Ensuring your tetanus vaccination is up to date, especially for cuts that are contaminated or caused by rusty objects.

Management of Sprains

Sprains involve stretching or tearing of ligaments, often in joints like ankles, wrists, or knees. PrimeCare Urgent Care offers comprehensive care for sprains, including:

  • RICE Therapy: Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation to reduce pain and swelling.
  • Splinting or Bracing: Providing support to the affected joint to prevent further injury and promote healing.
  • Physical Therapy Referrals: If needed, our providers can refer you to physical therapy to regain strength and range of motion.
