Urgent Care Q & A
What is orthopaedic urgent care?
Orthopaedic urgent care means immediate treatment for acute orthopaedic issues such as:
- Joint dislocation
- Infections in bones or joints
Orthopaedic urgent care can be an alternative to the emergency room, where you’d typically see a general physician without any specialized orthopaedic experience. When you work with an orthopaedic medicine expert, you’ll receive the specialized care you need from the start.
When should I see an orthopaedic urgent care provider?
If you have a sudden-onset problem affecting your bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, or muscles, an orthopaedic specialist is the best expert to see for diagnosis and treatment.
You should seek orthopaedic urgent care if you have sudden hip pain, elbow pain, shoulder pain, ankle pain, hand pain, knee pain, or other musculoskeletal pain. Orthopaedic specialists also treat the cervical and lumbar spine, which means they treat back pain and neck pain, too.
The orthopaedic specialists at Somers Orthopaedic Surgery & Sports Medicine Group cover a great deal of territory, from head to toe, to keep your musculoskeletal system working at its peak.
How does urgent care diagnosis work?
Somers Orthopaedic Surgery & Sports Medicine Group has all the equipment needed for immediate diagnosis in the office. After one of the orthopaedic specialists assesses your injury, you’ll typically have imaging tests.
Imaging tests can include digital X-rays, ultrasound, and MRI. These tests are on-site, so you’ll get quick results and can start your treatment right away.
What does orthopaedic urgent care treatment involve?
Your treatment at Somers Orthopaedic Surgery & Sports Medicine Group emphasizes complete recovery as fast as possible.
Treatment may start with conservative protocols, including physical therapy, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medication, steroid injections, electrical stimulation, and other non-invasive treatments.
If those treatments don’t help you, injectable treatments of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) or stem cells may be the best way to repair tissue damage naturally.
If conservative and regenerative medicine measures aren’t adequate, the board-certified orthopaedic surgeons can perform minimally invasive surgery in their dedicated surgery center, the Orthopaedic & Speciality Surgery Center in Danbury, Connecticut, or at a local hospital.
