Relief From Kidney Stone Symptoms in Brockton, MA

Man with kidney stone pain in lower back

PhysicianOne Urgent Care in Brockton, Massachusetts, provides walk-in medical care for a wide range of non-life-threatening health concerns, including kidney stones. Notorious for causing painful symptoms, kidney stones are hard deposits of salts and minerals that can develop in the kidneys and other parts of the urinary tract.

Symptoms of Kidney Stones

Kidney stones are known to trigger intense pain as they travel down the ureters, which are the thin tubes that join the kidneys to the bladder. Some of the most common symptoms include:

  • Urine that is unusually foul smelling, cloudy, pink, red, or brown
  • A frequent urge to urinate, or urinating in small amounts
  • A painful or burning sensation when urinating
  • Severe, sharp pain around the side, back, or below the ribs
  • Pain that radiates to the groin and lower abdominal area
  • Intermittent pain that may fluctuate in intensity

It’s important to promptly visit PhysicianOne Urgent Care or another reputable medical provider if you experience signs of a kidney stone.

Kidney Stone Treatment Options

Kidney stone treatment often begins with a urine test to rule out other possible causes of symptoms, such as a urinary tract infection (UTI). Based on your symptoms and other diagnostic tests, which may include X-ray imaging or a blood draw, treatment may involve taking medication to ease pain and encourage natural passing of the kidney stone. A referral to a medical specialist may be provided if your issue does not respond to conservative treatments.

Patient

"Throughout the visit I felt like the staff really cared. The Doctor took his time talking with me about my symptoms, and I felt like he listened to all my concerns and took that into consideration when recommending the right treatment. Thank you!"

"I had to take my son in for an ear infection following a sudden change in temperament at daycare. He was inconsolable the entire car ride but when we got there and by the time we left this care facility he was back to his normal happy go lucky little two year old boy. I highly recommend PhysicianOne Urgent Care."

Patient
Westwood, MA

"I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the attention you gave me last week. My son was started on antibiotics and ear drops. Within 24 hours he began to feel better. The poor kid had been going to school in tears because he was afraid of missing any more days, but feeling (and looking) just awful! He's not been able to even think about lacrosse practice, but thanks to starting him on antibiotics, he was thrilled to return to practice today."
