First Aid Handbook: Sprains

Your daughter takes a charge in her basketball game and puts her hands out to break the fall. Your son runs to catch the family dog and steps the wrong way on the pavement. You reach just the wrong way for an item and feel stabbing pain in your wrist. These and more are common experiences that can lead to you wondering if a sprain is suspected. Before you come see our team at Integrity Urgent Care, here are a few tips you should know about sprains.

First Aid Handbook: Hives

Hives are one of those conditions that can happen for a number of reasons. If you have never had them, you may be wondering when or why someone may start showing hives. It could even be confused for some other skin ailment or concern. Our team at Integrity Urgent Care can easily diagnose hives on our patients and help you understand what the cause may be, working to get you back on track.

First Aid Handbook: Stomach Ulcers

In the past, it was thought that stomach ulcers were caused by the food we eat or the stress we feel in our lives. It is now known that stomach ulcers are either caused by the bacteria H. pylori or by long term use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. These cause sores in the stomach lining leaving you in extreme pain and discomfort and in need of help from your Integrity Urgent Care team.

First Aid Handbook: Shingles

You may have heard about shingles. You also may think they might have something to do with chickenpox. Other than that, you may not be sure what it is. The Center for Disease Control states that one in every three adults will contract shingles at some point in their life. Integrity Urgent Care has all of the information you need on what shingles is and how you can protect yourself and your family from this virus.

First Aid Handbook: Chickenpox

It used to be that everyone had chickenpox and could tell a story of how they caught it, how their parents tried to prevent them from scratching their sores, and the inevitable scars left from dealing with the virus. Today, that has largely changed, but chickenpox does occur from time to time. Integrity Urgent Care can help you know what to be on the lookout for, particularly when you have small children who may not be fully immunized yet.

When to Take a Pregnancy Test

We all know the Hollywood signs and symptoms of pregnancy. Basically, if a female between the age of 15 and 50 throws up or feels nauseous, then they are pregnant. Real life is a bit different though and you may be wondering if you need to take an at home pregnancy test or not. Integrity Urgent Care has a few recommendations for when to take one and when to come see our medical team.
