    Common Types of Wounds

    Last updated 3 years ago

    The human body is more vulnerable than many people realize. Most of the time, wounds can be successfully treated with soap, antibacterial ointment, and bandages; however, there are certain wounds that should be treated at a hospital. Whatever kind of wound you incur, the doctors and nurses at Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point can treat it for you.

    An abrasion is a type of wound caused by scraping a body part against a hard surface, while a laceration is a type of cut. An incision occurs when a sharp object cuts through tissue and ligaments, and a puncture is a deep, penetrating wound. The term “avulsion” refers to tissue that has been forcefully separated by an animal bite or through some other means. If your wound doesn’t heal within a month, it is considered a chronic wound and should be treated right away.

    Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point employs a number of sophisticated wound treatment methods, including hyperbaric oxygen therapy. If you have any question about wounds or the type of care we provide at our Hudson hospital, call (888) 741-5119.

    Don't Let Back Pain Hold You Back

    Last updated 3 years ago

    Back pain is one of the most common medical conditions there is. Most Americans suffer low back pain at some point in their lives, whether it’s caused by an acute injury or repetitive movements. However, you don’t have to accept back pain as a foregone conclusion. By making smart lifestyle choices and working with the medical professionals at Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point, you can relieve your back pain or prevent it altogether. 

    Causes of Back Pain

    Back pain usually occurs when discs or vertebrae apply pressure to the spinal cord. Many people struggle with back pain after getting into a car accident, suffering a sports injury, or lifting an object improperly. Others experience back pain that gets worse over time, usually as a result of poor posture or a non-ergonomic workstation. If left unaddressed, minor back pain can lead to severe pain and permanent damage.  

    Common Treatment Options

    Back pain remedies range from simple lifestyle changes to surgery. If you have relatively minor pain, you may find that exercising and getting a more ergonomic chair can provide relief. If your pain is more serious, you might consider physical therapy or a cortisone injection. Back surgery is reserved for serious cases of back pain that are unaffected by less invasive treatment methods.
