Children need physical activity to grow strong and stay healthy. However, sports and other activities can increase their risk for a range of painful injuries that require medical attention.
The Cure With Care Pediatric office features services to address minor pediatric injuries that occur during sports, falls, or accidents around the home. Dr. Bhalani can treat acute injuries like:
He can also address headaches and other concussion symptoms that develop after minor head injuries.
You should schedule a medical evaluation for pediatric injuries at Cure With Care Pediatric if your child has pain, bleeding, or other symptoms you can’t manage on your own.
It’s also a good idea to schedule an appointment with Dr. Bhalani soon after a sports injury or other accident. In some cases, your child may have injuries requiring medical attention, even if they don’t experience immediate symptoms.
If your child experiences a serious head injury or an injury with a lot of blood loss, go to the hospital or call 911 for emergency medical care. Dr. Bhalani can coordinate your child’s care with the hospital physicians and monitor their recovery after discharge.
During your child’s visit at Cure With Care Pediatric for an acute injury, Dr. Bhalani physically examines your child’s wound or the area of pain. He may also request lab tests and X-rays or other diagnostic imaging tests to confirm their diagnosis.
Your child’s treatment plan depends on the nature of their injury. For instance, if they have an abrasion or open wound, Dr. Bhalani cleans the skin and can provide topical or oral medications to prevent infection.
If your child has pain from a muscle sprain or ligament strain, Dr. Bhalani can recommend over-the-counter anti-inflammatories, temporary immobilization, rest, and other strategies to help them recover fully.
Follow-up visits are available in-office, and through the online telemedicine platform, so Dr. Bhalani can monitor your child’s healing progress.
