Types of Wound Care We Provide
Any injury that breaks the skin is considered a wound. Although many wounds can be cleaned and cared for at home, there’s always the risk for infection. An infected wound can trigger the body’s immune response, thus leading to inflammation and the potential for more extensive damage. The infection can also spread to other body tissue, which can turn a relatively minor injury into a serious illness.
The highly trained and certified medical practitioners at Ouch Urgent Care are experienced in evaluating lacerations and puncture wounds and providing effective treatment, including disinfection and stitches or bandages. Moreover, if your wound is the result of a fall or another similar mishap that could have caused a bone fracture, we can provide digital X-rays on site.
