Treating Childhood Injuries, Big & Small

When a kid is hurt, it can be a scary time for the whole family. Common injuries might happen anywhere—on the playground, at home, or during sports—but knowing when to seek urgent care can make all the difference. At our clinic, we’re ready to help with a wide variety of injuries that need professional attention:

  • Cuts and Scrapes: Though these injuries are common for kids, proper treatment is critical for preventing infections and promoting healing. At our facility, we tailor treatments to the child's age and wound type, using everything from glue and adhesive strips to sutures, all while keeping your child calm and comfortable.
  • Fractures: A sports injury or tumble from a bike could result in a fracture. Our experienced team can diagnose these with our on-site digital X-ray, minimizing your child's exposure to radiation. Once diagnosed, we carefully splint and monitor the injury until it heals.
  • Sprains and Strains: Children are constantly growing and developing, making them susceptible to sprains and strains. At our clinic, we have the knowledge needed to properly identify these injuries in children of different ages to ensure they receive the right treatment.
  • Head Injuries: A bump on the head during play shouldn’t be ignored. Our specialists can evaluate your child for concussion and provide guidance on appropriate care and follow-up.
  • Burns: Accidental contact with hot surfaces or liquids can cause painful burns. We address each burn with appropriate treatment options and pain management strategies.
  • Animal Bites: Interactions with animals, whether at home or outdoors, can sometimes lead to bites. We offer immediate care and preventative measures against infection.
  • Foreign Objects: Children’s curiosity often leads to them inserting small objects in their ears or noses. Our doctors are adept at removing these objects gently and safely.

At Next Generation Pediatric Urgent Care, each injury is treated with the utmost professional care, ensuring comfort and healing for our young patients. With the support of our state-of-the-art digital X-ray technology and specialized pediatric care team, you can trust that your child’s health is in good hands.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is my child's injury serious enough for a trip to a pediatric care center?

It can be difficult to determine whether an injury requires urgent care or not, but as a rule of thumb, you should seek medical attention if your child is in pain, has visible swelling or bruising, is unable to bear weight on the injured area, or shows any signs of head trauma. If you're still unsure about the seriousness of your child's injury, it's always best to err on the side of caution and seek medical attention.

What if my child is scared or anxious about getting medical care?

We understand that doctor visits can make children feel nervous or scared. That's why we take extra care to create a comfortable and child-friendly environment in our urgent care center. Our team is entirely made up of specialists in Pediatrics and Pediatric Emergency Medicine, meaning we're trained to handle young patients with compassion, patience, and understanding to help your little ones feel safe and calm throughout their treatment.

Will my child need follow-up care for their injury?

In some cases, yes. Depending on the severity of the injury, our team may recommend follow-up care to ensure proper healing and recovery. We will provide you with clear instructions on how to handle any necessary follow-up care or treatment plans. For injuries like concussions or fractures, we may also recommend follow-up appointments with specialists to ensure your child's complete recovery.
