Young athletes are constantly exposed to the risk of orthopedic injury when participating in youth sports. The timing and quality of treatment determines how soon they can bounce back from a sports injury. An orthopedic urgent care gives easy access to the care needed to get back into the game with minimal delay.
Timely Treatment: Often an injured athlete will go to an emergency room for a traumatic sports injury only to be given first aid and redirected to an orthopedic specialist which causes a delay in treatment that could worsen the injury. You save lot of time and unnecessary pain by directly visiting an orthopedic urgent care instead.
Specialized Care: At an orthopedic urgent care center, you have access to an orthopedic specialist who is better qualified and experienced to accurately diagnose and treat sports injuries.
Cost effectiveness: A visit to the emergency room can be quite expensive even for a relatively minor injury. As an orthopedic urgent care center is designed and equipped only to offer orthopedic care, the costs of treatment can be kept relatively low.
Less risk of acquired infections: There is less risk of getting a hospital acquired infection at an orthopedic urgent care center as compared to emergency room where all kinds of conditions, including infectious diseases, are treated.
