Expertly Treating Bronchitis at Our Bristol, CT, Urgent Care Center
If you’re in the Bristol, Connecticut, area and you suspect that you have a case of bronchitis, you can turn to PhysicianOne Urgent Care for treatment. Bronchitis is caused by inflammation within the lining of the bronchial tubes—which carry air to and from the lungs—and can lead to symptoms such as:
- Increased mucus production
- Shortness of breath
- Discomfort within the chest
If your bronchitis is accompanied by a viral infection, such as a cold or the flu, you might also experience a fever, chills, a headache, and body aches.
The Team to Choose for Bronchitis Treatment
One of the many benefits of entrusting your treatment to PhysicianOne Urgent Care is that we never require appointments. Simply walk in whenever we’re open, and you’ll promptly be seen by one of the skilled providers on our team. Once we’ve spoken with you about your symptoms, performed a physical examination, and conducted any necessary testing, we’ll be able to provide you with an accurate diagnosis.
If it turns out that you do have bronchitis, treatment may involve a prescription for a cough suppressant, an inhaler, or another type of medication. Because acute bronchitis typically results from a viral infection rather than a bacterial infection, antibiotics generally aren’t appropriate. We’ll recommend a course of treatment that’s tailored to your specific needs.
