Injuries Q & A

What are common causes of injuries?

Injuries can happen quickly during normal, everyday activities. Some of the most common causes of injuries are:


Sudden motions or impact from exercise or sports can cause strains, sprains, or concussions. Areas prone to injury are:

  • Neck
  • Back and shoulders
  • Wrist and fingers
  • Knees
  • Ankles and feet


Trauma from a car crash, a fall, or a work-related accident can lead to contusions, abrasions, or lacerations that need quick medical attention.


Conditions like tendonitis or arthritis develop due to repetitive motion or overuse of a particular part of the body. Over time, this can lead to chronic pain or immobility.

What are the symptoms of an injury?

While you should always go to the emergency room if you have a life-threatening injury, Huntington Beach Urgent Care can help if you need relief from your symptoms and you can’t wait a few days to see your doctor.

Common symptoms of an injury include:

  • Swelling or inflammation
  • Sharp, shooting, or aching pain
  • Inability to move the injured area
  • Changes in skin color
  • Nausea or fatigue

How are injuries treated?

Dr. Schwartz treats a wide range of common injuries so you can find fast relief.

If you have a minor fracture, a sprain, or a broken bone, he may recommend a cast, wrap, or sling to immobilize the area. Cuts and wounds may require stitches or special bandaging. He might also prescribe anti-inflammatory drugs, pain relievers, or other medications to help you recover and heal.

When should I get treatment for an injury?

If you have an injury that isn’t getting better with rest or time, it’s best to seek medical care. At Huntington Beach Urgent Care, Dr. Schwartz’s goal is to help you get back to your normal activities quickly and ensure you heal properly.

You should also get treatment for an injury if you are in extreme pain or if you can’t move an area of your body normally.
