Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are extremely common, occurring in 1 out of 5 women at some point in their lifetime. At One Stop Family Clinic, located in Murfreesboro Tennessee, Board Certified Practitioner Emily Robinette provides quick and effective treatment for patients suffering from painful UTIs.
Normally, the urine does not contain bacteria. However, in instances where bacteria from outside the body enters the urinary tract, it causes infection and inflammation. This is known as a urinary tract infection (UTI). The infection can involve the urethra, bladder, or even the kidneys.
Urinary tract infections don't always cause signs and symptoms but when they do, they may include:
Urinary tract infections are caused by microorganisms—usually bacteria—that enter the urethra and bladder, causing inflammation and infection. The bacteria also may travel up the ureters and infect the kidneys. Sexually active women are more prone to UTIs than women who are not sexually active. Also, UTIs are common among menopausal women due to their decline in circulating estrogen.
Emily diagnoses urinary tract infections by a urinalysis or urine culture. Antibiotics clear up most UTIs quickly.
Several preventative measures can decrease the likelihood of getting a UTI. These include:
"I took my son in at the last minute and Emily got us right in and took great care of him! She is very knowledgable and great with kids! "
"She stayed late and took wonderful care of my sick little boy, and the Mills Family even kept the pharmacy open late to make sure he got the meds he needed."
"You aren't just quantity here, at this family office you are treated and respected as family, as well as given an ultimate level of care."
"Just want to say again that I appreciate her being so kind and patient with me. I don't know what I would've done without this small family clinic yesterday!"
