Urgent injuries NEVER happen during normal business hours, do they? Nope, it’s always a 5:30 pm injury, just after most offices are closed, and you’re faced with that quick decision – do I take them to the germ fest at the ER or to an urgent care clinic? Not this time, Smarties.
When time is of the essence, OrthoCarolina offers urgent care for every member of the family. The Orthopedic Urgent Care (OUC) is staffed by board certified orthopedic surgeons and licensed orthopedic Physician Assistants.
The OrthoCarolina providers treat acute conditions for all age groups, including:
-Strains, sprains, minor dislocations and closed fractures
-Painful, swollen or injured joints of the ankle, back, elbow, foot, hand, hip, knee, neck, and shoulder
-Cast or wound dressing issues
With three convenient locations in Uptown, Matthews and University areas, their hours are Mon-Fri 5:30-9p and Sat/Sun 10a-2p. So REMEMBER this blog – don’t go to the ER, go to OrthoCarolina! You’ll be glad you did!
