Unlike chronic illness, an acute illness or injury typically develops rapidly and does not last long. Conditions like a cold or flu are examples of an acute illness.
While many acute illnesses can and will go away on their own, some do require medical treatment and medication to resolve the condition.
If you're suffering from the effects of an acute illness or injury, the caring medical professionals at Balance Hormone Center are here to help.
Treatment for an acute condition depends upon the illness. It can range from antibiotics to pain medication to diminish the impact of the illness as well as treat symptoms, such as body aches or a cough.
Our highly trained medical team will:
- Diagnose your condition by listening to your symptoms, perform a physical examination, order lab work or x-rays, or any other medical tests needed to achieve an accurate diagnosis
- Determine if there are any underlying issues that might indicate a chronic condition exists. For example, is your acute bronchitis simply an infection, or is there an underlying condition of asthma that's making it worse?
- Treat your condition and your symptoms with medication, education on the condition, and recommendations for treatment that will speed up your recovery, such as bed rest or increased fluid intake
- Follow up with any after-care if necessary
Our objective is to heal and help, so you can go back to feeling good again.
