Injuries can occur at any time, from bumping into furniture in the dark to tripping on a shoelace while exercising to a variety of kitchen accidents. While certain injuries can be treated at home with bandages and antibacterial solution, others may be more serious and require examination by a medical professional to determine the best course of care. If you sustain an injury and are unsure of how to treat it, visit AFC Urgent Care Northern Liberties for walk-in diagnosis and treatment.
What injuries can be treated at urgent care?
AFC Urgent Care Northern Liberties is open seven days a week to walk-in patients, with hours into the evening and on weekends to accommodate accidents outside of your primary care office and when an emergency room visit may not be necessary. Some of the wide range of non-life-threatening injuries treated by our staff include:
- Bone breaks and fractures
- Muscle sprains and strains
- Lacerations and cuts that need stitches
- Dislocated joints
- Minor burns
- Insect and tick bites
AFC Urgent Care Northern Liberties is home to a state-of-the-art lab and digital x-ray department, allowing us to provide the necessary tests and imaging to get a complete diagnosis of the injury for complete treatment. If you will need more specialized treatment for your injury, we will be able to refer you to a local specialist to get the care you need. Our center uses digital x-rays to reduce the amount of radiation required to capture internal images as well as for easier record-keeping for the patient. While traditional film x-rays come in large sheets you will need to keep track of, digital x-rays can be kept on an easily transportable thumb drive accessible by most computers. Digital imaging also provides crisper images as well as the ability to zoom in and out to capture the entire injury, rather than the largest part.
