When your child is sick or injured, you may immediately think that you have to take him or her to the emergency room for treatment. In fact, many illnesses and injuries that children suffer are not actual emergencies, and can be treated instead at a pediatric urgent care clinic.
Before you head to the ER the next time that your child becomes ill or gets hurt, consider whether the condition could be better addressed at a UC facility. Equipped to treat a variety of medical situations, these clinics are one of the most convenient and cost-effective solutions to pediatric care.
Among others, the following are great opportunities to take your little one to an Urgent Care clinic in New Jersey:
Strep throat often begins as a relatively minor illness, but can quickly worsen if left untreated. Thankfully, a pediatric UC physician can quickly, and accurately, diagnose your child with a rapid strep test, and prescribe an appropriate treatment without ado.
Symptoms include a severe sore throat, fatigue, and/or a rash on the upper body.
Muscle Aches and Pains
Sprained and strained muscles are a common injury, and easily treated at a UC facility. From ankles and knees to fingers and wrists, why wait for hours in the ER when your child can walk in and out of a pediatric urgent care facility? With on-site diagnostics and x-ray techs ready to help, your son or daughter will be back on track in no time.
