Small cuts, injuries, lacerations, abrasions, minor fractures, tendonitis, sprains, minor burns, infected wounds, and the removal of foreign objects are addressed by urgent care. You may have to have an X-ray based on the type of injury or your wound will be cleaned, disinfected and dressed by a nurse.You might need a shot of tetanus, too, which the nurse will give you. The doctor may prescribe OTC painkillers, depending on the amount of pain that you are in.You may find more information at Accident and Injury Care, Chiropractic and Massage.

If you have a dressing room, you might have to come every day to change your dressing room. The nurse will provide you with tips on how to care at home for your wound or injury.The purpose of urgent care centres’ blood tests, X-rays and injury care is to ease the burden on emergency rooms. So, if you have a health condition or injury that is not life-threatening and requires prompt medical attention, the place for you is urgent care.

All martial art instructors and coaches should read the “The Bare Essentials Guide for Martial Arts Injury Care and Prevention” by Trish Bare Grounds, and it is a convenient reference to any school at hand. I would encourage anyone involved in the martial arts, but especially instructors and coaches, to read it. The book contains basic knowledge, and many martial artists will already be familiar with some here, who are the level of instructor or coach, but that does not mean that it should not be reviewed for a reference and kept handy.

It will not transform you into a doctor, but it will provide the fundamentals that instructors and coaches should know. The first chapter is about the prevention of injury. It makes sense that prevention is better than treating an injury at all times. The major part of this chapter is about stretching. There are some fundamental stretching guidelines, and some of the most common stretches are illustrated.
