What is the adolescence age range? Why is adolescent health important?
The World Health Organization (WHO) says that the age range for children designated as “adolescents” is 10 to 19, but it’s not uncommon for the term to be used to describe young adults up to 21 years of age.
As adolescence is a transitionary period for children and young adults, there are different health risks and potential complications involved, so these young patients require a different kind of healthcare than they did at earlier ages. To help young patients grow and become healthy adults, we offer pediatric care and adolescent healthcare here at Night Lite Pediatrics.
Which branch of medicine is for patients between the ages of 11 and 21?
The common, professional term for this branch of medicine and kind of healthcare is pediatrics! This includes healthcare for infants, children, and adolescents up to 21 years of age. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends adolescents be under pediatric care up to 21 years old. This is what we do here at Night Lite Pediatrics!
What is pediatric adolescent urgent care? Can adolescents visit an urgent care vs. an adolescent medicine doctor?
So, pediatrics is the term for healthcare for young patients, including adolescents, and pediatric adolescent urgent care is urgent, walk-in healthcare for adolescents. With this kind of care, young patients and their parents can simply come into a clinic for same-day service with no appointment required, and the young patients can receive immediate care. This is very convenient a lot of the time, such as when your child needs a physical exam right away for school or a new sports team.
With pediatric adolescent urgent care, young patients can get any kind of physical exam, including annual physicals, as well as immediate treatment for common conditions like strep throat or minor sports injuries. The big benefit of going to urgent care over a family physician is that with urgent care, no appointment is necessary, so walk-ins are accepted and welcome! Here at Night Lite Pediatrics, we see young patients on a walk-in basis all the time, and because we’re specialists in pediatrics, we can provide the kind of care parents really want for their adolescents. We would be very happy to provide your adolescents with this kind of care!
