What Is High Blood Pressure?
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:
- Shortness of breath
- Bloody nose
- Chest pain
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.
How Is High Blood Pressure Treated?
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
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.
Rockwall Rapid Care Reviews
I took a good fall yesterday & needed to get some X-rays done. After calling Carenow with a 4 hr wait & Medpost no X-rays that day, I stumbled across this place. It had 5 star reviews too. I decided to go & the appt process was super easy, checking in was a breeze, ZERO WAIT TIME (huge perk), the rooms were high tech, clean, and awesome chairs. I was in & out with X-rays done in 30 min!! I am a huge fan now & I will be singing their praises as they are much deserved. Thank you to the staff for your fast & efficient work.
Needed a sports physical at the last minute and they came to the rescue!
AMAZING experience! Brought my toddler for shots & Craig did an incredible job. No tears were shed. We will be back!
They were quick, friendly and knowledgeable.
Got an appointment so easily and got to stay in my car the whole visit. Everyone was so friendly and helpful and listened to all of my concerns. Will definitely be going back when I need to.
