Minor Injuries

When should I see a doctor for minor injuries?

It’s important to seek medical attention anytime you have an injury, even if it seems minor. Injuries, such as wounds, can quickly become infected, while soft tissue injuries, like ankle sprains, may never heal properly if you don’t get treatment. You need to see a doctor if you:

  • Have a wound with a foreign object inside (like glass)
  • Experience swelling or bruising after an injury
  • Are unable to bear weight on your foot or leg
  • Have a small wound that won’t stop bleeding

Whether you had a slip and fall, suffered from a sports injury, or otherwise injured yourself, it’s important to have a comprehensive evaluation with a physician you can trust.
