What is an orthopedic walk-in clinic?
An orthopedic walk-in clinic offers easy access to specialized care. The team at Southern Oregon Orthopedics & Paragon Orthopedic Center prioritizes the health and safety of their community. They provide safe and accessible orthopedic urgent care to help you avoid a trip to the emergency room.
The facility is fully equipped with everything needed to diagnose and treat a wide range of orthopedic injuries. There is an on-site X-ray suite and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanner for diagnostic purposes as well as an expert team of orthopedic surgeons available to treat you. If you need follow-up care like physical therapy, they also provide those services on site.
When should I go to an orthopedic walk-in clinic?
The surgeons at Southern Oregon Orthopedics & Paragon Orthopedic Center provide fast and convenient treatment for many conditions, including:
A fracture, or broken bone, usually causes severe pain immediately after the injury that causes it. If the fracture involves an open wound or a bone that pierces the skin, you need to go to the emergency room right away. For most other fractures, you can walk in to the orthopedic clinic.
Sprains and strains
A sprain occurs when a ligament stretches and tears. A strain is when the same thing happens to a muscle or tendon. Sprains and strains can cause similar symptoms as fractures, so it’s important to get an accurate diagnosis at the orthopedic walk-in clinic.
A dislocation is when a joint moves out of place. This typically causes immediate pain and an obvious deformity. The team at Southern Oregon Orthopedics & Paragon Orthopedic Center can move your joint back into its proper position and fit you for a brace or sling to help support the injured joint.
Other orthopedic injuries
Other injuries that may need urgent orthopedic care include joint pain, tendon injuries, acute back and neck pain, and sports injuries.
