Quick Treatment for Urinary Tract Infections at Our Saline, MI, Clinic
Urinary tract infections (UTIs) occur when bacteria enter the urethra (the tube that carries urine) and infect the urinary tract. While UTIs are common and usually not serious, the infection can continue to spread to other parts of the urinary tract if left untreated, which can cause severe complications. If you’re in Saline, Michigan, and believe you have a urinary tract infection, Springfield Urgent Care can help. We have an on-site lab and offer same-day UTI testing for rapid diagnosis and treatment.
A urinary tract infection results from bacteria (generally E. coli from the rectum) traveling up the urethra to the rest of the urinary tract. After bacteria enter the urethra, the infection can spread to the bladder and kidneys, causing serious complications. UTIs are more common in women, as the urethra is closer to the rectum, making it easier for bacteria to spread. However, these infections are simple to treat in the early stages.
