Breathing and Respiratory IssuesNew Caney, TX
As an urgent care, we can provide efficient and effective treatment for a multitude of breathing and respiratory issues. People who use store-bought medication on the shelves will find that it is only effective in temporary relief of breathing and respiratory problems. Instead of wasting money on these treatments or waiting weeks for an appointment, visit our urgent care.
We provide flexible hours, effective treatment, prompt care and do not require an appointment.
Reasons to Visit Us for Respiratory Issues
Unlike store-bought medications for breathing and respiratory issues, we can provide patients with stronger and more customized treatment options. With our treatment, we focus on several key factors of treatment, including:
With the possible breathing and respiratory issues that people can struggle with, there are more signs of symptoms than just difficulty breathing. Patients need to watch out for these symptoms and seek treatment as soon as possible. Respiratory conditions that we can help treat include bronchitis, pneumonia, chest pain, allergic reactions and asthma attacks.
With our treatment, we can help to measure the extent of the condition and provide effective treatment instead of just providing a generalized ineffective option. Thus, people need to identify potential signs of respiratory issues and seek treatment.
Since symptoms of these conditions can blend together or seem like symptoms of other conditions, people may not always know what to do for treatment. That is where we come in. Common symptoms of asthma, bronchitis and pneumonia can include:
While these are all similar symptoms of asthma, bronchitis and pneumonia, each condition can have its own level of severity and complications. With our treatment, we can help to identify the cause and recommend an effective treatment.
Don’t Wait to Seek Treatment
During the examination process, we will find the source of the breathing and/or respiratory issue and not just treat the symptoms. For instance, if a patient suspects that he or she has asthma, we will test to determine this and the classification of asthma. Once we know the severity, we will prescribe a specific medication for the patient. Many people are able to lead comfortable and healthy lives with asthma once they find the most effective treatment.
Here are a few of the common questions patients ask us on a regular basis and our answers to them.
Does Getting rest Actually Help with Recovery?
Yes. While rest alone will not be enough, it can help to promote recovery. While sick, the body uses up more energy to fight the illness. Due to this, people who are sick have much less energy and are more tired.
If I have an issue like Asthma, will the treatment drastically change my lifestyle?
In many cases, not as drastically as you might think. Since each patient is unique, there is a chance that the condition may be more serious for one person than it is for others. With that in mind, we will help the patient learn how to live with asthma and continue to live life to the fullest.
Is being out of breath from exercising the same as a Respiratory Issue?
If you are out of breath from exercising or completing a strenuous activity, then that in of itself may not be the sign of any real issue. However, if minimal physical activity of any kind causing breathing issues or being near grass seems to make it harder to breathe, then there may be a general respiratory issue.
How Long will the treatment last?
The length of time for the treatment will vary greatly based on the patient's needs. While some conditions will go away after a few days or weeks of treatment, other conditions will take longer. In those cases, we will recommend the most effective course of action.
Will Medications in Stores help with Treatment?
In many cases, not really. If we prescribe an antibiotic or medication, it will be much stronger than any store-bought medication on a shelf. While those can help to temporarily provide relief for symptoms, they will not be effective in providing long-term relief.
