Hypertension, more commonly known as high blood pressure, is a condition that impacts millions of Americans annually. High blood pressure can become a very serious issue if not treated properly. Untreated high blood pressure could cause heart attack, stroke, kidney failure, and more. This common condition usually affects individuals who are older, smoke, are obese, or have a family history of hypertension. This chronic condition can cause a number of symptoms, including:

  • Dizziness
  • Shortness of breath
  • Bloody nose
  • Fatigue
  • Chest pain
  • Headache
  • Stroke

At Rockwall Rapid Care, we urge all individuals to seek medical attention if they experience any of these symptoms. At our urgent care facility, our team of professionals is equipped with the knowledge and technology to treat hypertension. For more information, feel free to visit us in Rockwall, TX.

If hypertension is to blame for your symptoms and struggles, the good news is that it should be relatively simple to diagnose at our Rockwall, TX office. If your blood pressure reads over 120/80 mm Hg, you may be considered in high blood pressure territory. However, your provider will not make a diagnosis off of one high reading. Rather, your blood pressure may be taken again later on in the appointment, or you may be asked to monitor your blood pressure numbers at home. If the consistent readings continue to land higher than 120/80 mm Hg, you may qualify for a hypertension diagnosis. If your blood pressure reads higher than 180/120mm Hg, your number is considered far too high and may require more immediate medical attention.

Hypertension treatment overseen by the experts at our Rockwall, TX office doesn’t just help your blood pressure numbers go down — it can help save your life. Benefits of high blood pressure treatment at Rockwall Rapid Care include:

  • Decreasing the risk of heart attack, stroke, and other major health problems

  • Lessening your long-term, overall healthcare costs
  • Multiple treatment options and techniques may be available

When our team at Rockwall Rapid Care evaluates you at our clinic in Rockwall, TX, we will first review your symptoms to determine if your condition is life-threatening and requires treatment at the nearest hospital. If your condition is non-emergent, we will likely perform a chest x-ray, blood tests, and more. Utilizing our on-site laboratory, we can quickly get these results back so we can diagnose and treat you as soon as possible. Depending on the diagnosis, we will typically treat for primary high blood pressure (no known cause) or secondary high blood pressure (the cause is known).

If you have primary high blood pressure, we may suggest making adjustments to:

  • Diet and exercise
  • Alcohol consumption
  • Coping methods for stress
  • Medications

If you have secondary high blood pressure, we will typically review your underlying conditions and prescription medications and may change your dose of blood pressure medication.

My family and I have used this clinic several times in the past, with the most recent being for myself today. I've always gotten to see the physician with little wait, several times while being able to remain in my car. His assistant, Craig, has always been so professional and kind, and today I found out he gives a virtually painless IM injection. :) I definitely recommend!!!!
