Orthopaedic urgent care centers offer several benefits for athletes who may encounter sports injuries. Although many sprains and minor fractures can be treated at general urgent care clinics, fractures and other musculoskeletal injuries that are more serious are often best handled by orthopaedic experts.
Orthopaedic urgent care facilities are different from traditional urgent care centers because most are located within larger facilities, offering a front door to a practice that is fully staffed by experts. These centers specialize in orthopaedic care, ensuring you get the treatment you need from well-trained orthopaedic specialists. Most of these walk-in orthopaedic clinics also provide a far greater inventory selection on-hand than traditional centers do, such as braces, slings, boots, and more specialized treatment solutions.
Benefits of Orthopaedic Urgent Care for Sports Injuries
Unfortunately, sports injuries tend to happen when they’re least expected. When they do occur, fast treatment is necessary to expedite recovery time. At our orthopaedic urgent care, patients receive fast, convenient treatment for a wide variety of musculoskeletal sports injuries, such as hip injuries, rotator cuff injuries, ACL tears, tendon conditions, traumatic joint and bone issues, meniscus tears, and other common injuries in sports.
Traditional urgent care centers may not have the knowledge or staff needed to handle more complicated sports injuries. Our expertise and years of experience treating these types of injuries ensures athletes receive cutting-edge care for the fastest sports injury recovery.
We provide X-ray imaging on-site which simplifies and expedites diagnosis and care for sports injuries. Our facility also has physical and occupational therapists who can help patients long-term as they recover from their injuries. From on-site injections, therapy, casting services, and bracing, these are all services we provide to help treat sports injuries effectively.
