As a trusted urgent care clinic in King, North Carolina, we provide services for a wide variety of medical conditions and illnesses, including:
The intense feeling you get immediately after a sudden injury like a fracture, sprain, fall, or burn is considered acute pain. This pain comes on quickly and usually stops once the injury is healed with methods such as splints, braces, ice, bandages, etc.
Respiratory diseases and long-term complications make it hard to breathe normally and may be aggravated by certain external triggers. Asthma can be brought under control with a treatment plan that may include an inhaler or other medication.
Insect bites from mosquitoes, spiders, and other small critters are commonly seen in urgent care and can be treated quite simply. In some cases, bites may result in more severe reactions like swelling and trouble breathing or may become infected after the initial bite and require additional medical care.
Upper respiratory infections like colds and the flu can make you feel foggy and unable to properly function due to symptoms such as coughing, sneezing, body aches, and fatigue. We can help determine the severity of your illness and guide you on the steps needed to feel better faster.
COVID-19 is a disease that can cause a range of symptoms, including those similar to a common cold. It may also lead to more severe, long-lasting damage to the body and its organs. We offer rapid testing via nasal swab when it’s important to know your COVID-19 status.
We can diagnose and treat minor cuts, burns, abrasions, and lacerations. Our team will assess the severity of your injury in order to choose the correct steps of care, prevent infection, and promote healing. Depending on the injury, we offer sutures, staples, skin glue, and the bandaging of wounds.
Dehydration occurs when your body loses more fluid than it takes in, which often happens in hot weather, during intense workouts, or when you are sick with nausea and diarrhea. It can be very dangerous if overlooked and is usually treated by simply replenishing the body with fluids. We offer IV hydration as medically necessary.
Diabetes is a condition that needs to be monitored and carefully managed every day to prevent unbalanced levels of blood sugar and insulin. There are three types of diabetes: type 1, type 2, and gestational and they can all be treated to ensure a healthy future.
A dislocation occurs when your bone forcibly comes out of position at its joint. This can happen anywhere in the body where there is a joint connection, but typically happens in the fingers, shoulders, elbows, and hips.
Earaches are a painful result of infection, injury, or temporary sickness like a cold or sinus infection. Earaches often occur in just one ear and don’t usually last more than a few days. In more severe cases, the pain may last a while, have intense side effects, or involve nausea and fever.
Headaches can result from a wide range or problems, from dehydration to lack of sleep, stress, infection, and more. Headaches can usually be remedied with over-the-counter medications and rest, but more serious cases, such as those due to underlying medical conditions, may require treatment.
Hemorrhoids are an inflammation of the veins in and around your anus. They are a common part of adult life and are more likely to develop if you are obese, sedentary, pregnant, or strain during bowel movements.
Physical exams are a great way to periodically check in on your health. While we do not replace the role of a primary care provider, we are happy to provide specific purpose physicals – such as to attend camp, school, or when applying for a new job.
Skin issues are irritating and may cause you to constantly scratch or pick, sometimes leaving visible marks and scars. Not sure if your skin condition requires treatment? Visit one of our urgent care providers, who can help determine whether your area of concern is a rash, infection, or abscess. The providers will then perform, order, or prescribe the appropriate treatment.
Conditions like the common cold and flu are types of respiratory infections. These infections affect your sinuses, throat, and airways, making it hard to breathe and function normally. Respiratory infections can be diagnosed through imaging and other tests.
If you’ve ever had a stuffy nose that made you feel like there was a lot of pressure in your head, you may have had a sinus infection. These infections are common and often brought on by a virus that causes excess buildup in the sinuses. Sinus infections are sometimes confused with a common cold or seasonal allergies.
An itchy, red, sore throat can be just that, and can usually be taken care of at home. It can also be the beginning signs of a more serious infection, like strep throat. Sore throats can be caused by infections or even environmental factors like dust – but strep is a contagious bacterial infection that is diagnosed with a quick swab of the throat and requires medical treatment.
Fractures, dislocations, muscle sprains, and soft tissue tears are usually part of the game when playing competitive sports. These injuries can result from improper training, lack of warming up, or faulty/improperly fitted equipment. Sports injuries are treated with common techniques like splints, braces, and compression sleeves to heal and reduce your pain as soon as possible.
Sprains, strains, and broken bones happen in sports and everyday life. If the pain makes it uncomfortable to continue your normal daily activities, it’s time to visit a medical provider. In many cases, conservative treatments are all that is necessary to get you back to your busy schedule.
Your urinary system includes the kidneys, bladder, urethra, and more. An infection caused by bacteria can specifically target any of these organs and can result in painful urination or lower back pain. Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are especially common in women and are usually treated with antibiotics.
Vaginal issues affect millions of women every year and come in a variety of forms, including yeast infections, STDs, and vaginosis. Symptoms may include itchiness, abnormal discharge, or spotting. An urgent care provider can provide for your women’s healthcare needs when you can’t get in to see your regular OB-GYN.
