We all deal with numerous situations on a daily basis that require our attention – who’ll pick the kids up from soccer practice, what’s for dinner, where you’ll spend the holidays and more. Many of these we can address and quickly move on from. Yet when dealing with our health, we need to be much more mindful and treat these situations differently.

Often times, warning signs can often develop into emergencies. Regardless of how much soreness you feel in your knees or the severity of your lower back pain, it’s important to not take such matters lightly. If you have chronic pain or reoccurring health issues and things seems to be escalating, it’s important to speak with emergency care experts that are highly trained and board-certified physicians.

At Methodist McKinney Hospital, we have a no wait, 24-hour ER department that can help you deal with numerous situations that life can throw your way, day or night.
