At some point in our lives, we will all experience a health problem, whether it’s the common cold or the pesky flu. While some will go away on their own, there are health issues that require urgent medical attention, and it’s important to know when to seek proper treatment.
What Is An Acute Disease?
An acute disease appears suddenly and lasts for a short amount of time. This is different from chronic diseases, which develop gradually and remain for months on end.
Common Acute Conditions treated at Phoenix Integrative Medical Center:
- Upper Respiratory Infections and Strep Pharyngitis
- GI Reflux
- Urinary Tract and Kidney Infections
- Common Orthopedic Conditions, including joint sprains and muscle strains
- As well as other Primary Care needs
Through a physical examination and identifying your symptoms, your doctor can provide a diagnosis and individualized treatment plan to care for your acute illness.
Serious Acute Illnesses
Many acute diseases can be self-limiting and may go away on their own or can be treated with a simple course of antibiotics or other prescription medications. These more acute severe diseases require urgent medical care. By seeking treatment for your acute illness as soon as possible, you reduce the chance of further complications or other long-term health issues.
