Fast Care for All Orthopaedic and Sports Injuries

Orthopaedic urgent care can be a better, more cost-effective option than emergency room care (unless your injury is life-threatening or severe) because you avoid long waits and potential exposure to sick people. Visit one of our orthopaedic urgent care clinics if you have:

  • Heel pain or ligament injury
  • Ankle sprain, ankle fracture, or torn ankle ligament
  • Hip bursitis or IT band pain
  • Shoulder dislocation or rotator cuff injury
  • Golf or tennis elbow
  • Torn ACL, meniscus tear, kneecap fracture, or knee dislocation
  • Sprained or fractured wrist
No Appointment Needed

Our orthopaedic urgent care clinics are open 1 pm–8:30 pm Monday to Friday and 8 am–1:30 pm Saturday and Sunday. Walk-ins are welcome. For more information, call 855-855-6484.
