Allergy Risk Changes With The Seasons

Spring Allergies are Nothing to Sneeze At.

The season you were born could be the reason why you’re allergic to freshly cut grass or dust mites.

According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, 30% of adults and 40% of children live with allergies.

It can be challenging to tell the difference between a cold and an allergy. At ProHEALTH Urgent Cares, patients benefit from access to highly skilled physicians and clinical staff who provide allergy and cold treatment.

Winter Health Tips

When it starts to snow and the pavement outside starts getting icy and slippery, it is very important to take caution when going outside. Take baby steps in areas that might be really slippery, falling and hurting your back can and will be painful. Remember to take extra caution when going out in the snow, and if you do happen to fall and hurt yourself; go to your nearest ProHealth Urgent Care Center. We will be more than happy to help you get back on your feet.

1 SHOVELING SNOW Risk: Back injury, heart attack, muscle strain, slips and falls

Tip: Shovel a little at a time, pace yourself and frequently hydrate.

2 FROSTBITE Risk: Exposed skin like the nose, cheeks, ears, lips, and fingers are most vulnerable

Tip: Be prepared for sudden temperature changes by keeping gloves, scarf and hat in the car or on your person. If skin becomes red, numb or irritated seek medical care.

3 FALLS Risk: Back injury, wrist and head injuries.

Tip: Wear the right shoes, be aware of icy sidewalks and driveways, keep arms free to brace yourself for a fall. Take baby steps in dangerous areas and use your whole foot to walk. Avoid walking quickly with your heel hitting the pavement first. If you take a tumble, get up slowly.

When you suspect a back injury go to a ProHEALTH Urgent Care doctor for an evaluation. We’re here whenever you need us.

Flu Season Does Not Take Days Off, and Neither Do We!

Winter is a time for cozy sweaters, warm fires, sharing meals with family, and watching the snow fall.  While winter has its perks, it has its share of downsides too.  It’s also the time of year when the dreaded influenza virus comes back, and all that family closeness can lead to family illness as well.

Even though this winter has been relatively mild (no polar vortex yet, knock on wood), this year’s flu breakout is shaping up to be one of the worst in years.  According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, infection rates of the influenza virus are climbing quicker than the past 3 years, and are on track for a particularly brutal flu season.

As of late December, there were are enough cases nation wide to declare the 2014-2015 flu outbreak an epidemic.  Although this designation is given to the flu nearly every year, it is still a dangerous virus for you and your family.

In order to stay healthy, it is important to catch flu symptoms early.  The first step to preventing the spread of the virus is to seek medical attention immediately upon experiencing symptoms or noticing them in your children.  The sooner it’s caught, the shorter the recovery period, and the less likely it is to spread to you or the rest of your family.

Circle Urgent Care is Staten Island’s premier urgent care facility, and is open 365 days to serve all your medical needs.  With three convenient locations at Arden Avenue, Victory Boulevard, and Richmond Boulevard, the Circle Urgent Care staff is always there to take care of all of your family’s medical needs, no appointment necessary.

The flu doesn’t take days off, and neither do we.
