These injuries can occur from sharp objects or falls. Our team will clean the wound, apply appropriate dressings, and may administer tetanus shots if necessary, ensuring proper healing and minimizing the risk of infection.

Finger & Nail Injuries:

From accidental cuts to nail bed injuries, we provide expert care, including wound cleaning, stitching (if required), and pain management to promote optimal healing and prevent complications.

Splinter Removal:

We offer safe and gentle splinter removal techniques to minimize pain and reduce the risk of infection associated with foreign objects embedded in the skin.

Nose Bleeds:

We assess the cause of the nosebleed, provide effective measures to stop the bleeding, and offer guidance on preventive strategies to avoid future episodes.

  • Minor Burns: Whether caused by hot objects, liquids, or chemicals, we provide immediate care, soothing the burn, cleaning the area, and applying dressings to promote healing.
  • Blisters: We offer guidance on blister management, including proper cleaning, dressing, and advice on when to seek medical attention for infected or severe blisters.
  • Ocular Foreign Bodies: If a foreign object enters the eye, we examine and remove it, ensuring minimal damage and prescribing eye drops or ointments to prevent infection.
  • Ingrown Toenail: We provide relief from the pain and discomfort associated with ingrown toenails through appropriate trimming, cleaning, and, if needed, minor surgical interventions.

Tick Removal:

Our professionals skillfully remove ticks while ensuring complete removal of the insect to prevent infection or related complications.


We assess the extent of the bruise, provide pain management, and offer guidance on reducing swelling and promoting healing through rest, ice, compression, and elevation.

If a joint is dislocated, we manipulate the joint to its normal position, alleviating pain, and may provide supportive measures like splints or braces to aid healing.

We evaluate the toe injury, provide pain relief, offer immobilization techniques (such as buddy taping), and guide on necessary follow-up care to ensure proper healing.
