Minor Injuries Q & A

What are minor injuries?

Minor injuries often require immediate medical intervention, but you might not be able to wait for an appointment to open up with your primary care doctor, and you likely don’t need an emergency room visit. An urgent care facility can help you if you have any of the following types of minor injuries:


  • Wound infections
  • Minor burns
  • Lacerations 
  • Animal bites
  • Insect stings
  • Blisters
  • Splinters 
  • Sprains
  • Strains 


Cima Medical Centers can even help you if you have minor bone fractures. With on-site X-ray and ultrasound imaging available, your doctor can quickly diagnose your condition. 

When should I see a doctor for a minor injury?

The compassionate medical team at Cima Medical Centers encourage you to come in for a minor injury evaluation if you experience any of the following issues:


  • Open or slow-healing wounds
  • Limited joint range of motion
  • Skin redness or inflammation 
  • Difficulty bearing weight on your leg, ankle, or foot


You should also visit the Cima Medical Centers location nearest you if you suffered from trauma, such as a car accident or a slip and fall at work. Even if you don’t feel too much discomfort now, you may have a minor injury that could worsen if you don’t get it treated right away. 

How are minor injuries treated?

The team members at Cima Medical Centers are prepared to help you with any kind of minor injury you or your child may have. After examining you and performing any necessary diagnostic testing, your physician talks with you about treatment options, which may include:

  • Stitches or stapling 
  • Removal of foreign objects
  • Wound cleaning and bandaging
  • Immobilization with a boot or cast
  • Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)

If you need physical therapy or other ongoing treatments for injuries, including sports injuries, your provider can help you get started. Cima Medical Centers can even help you learn lifestyle changes you can make at home — such as rest, ice, compression, and elevation (RICE) — to aid in your recovery. 

Cima Medical Centers can diagnose and treat many types of minor injuries. You can book an appointment online or over the phone today, or you can walk into the clinic nearest you for immediate care.
