How to Know When You Need Orthopedic Urgent Care in South Jersey
The Urgent Care Clinics by Rothman Institute treat your emergency injuries and symptoms quickly and comprehensively.
Orthopaedic injuries happen every day and some accidents require a visit to urgent care. Though not every uncomfortable condition is an emergency, pain can be an important and reliable indicator that you should urgently seek medical care. How can you tell the difference between a nonemergency and a time-sensitive injury? Here at Rothman Institute, we recommend visiting our Orthopedic Urgent Care in South Jersey in every instance that you or a loved one experiences a sprain, strain, fracture, or tear.
Receive Expert Orthopaedic Care Right Away
Rothman Institute’s orthopedic physicians specialize in treating injuries and chronic conditions of the skeleton and its associated structures, such as ligaments, joints, and cartilage. Although general emergency room services effectively treat emergency medical conditions and will offer referrals for an orthopaedist, patients can access expert orthopaedic care directly at our Urgent Care locations. We provide immediate intervention for complicated bone, joint, and ligament problems without the need for an appointment.
The following situations and symptoms typically qualify as emergency indicators and may require orthopedic urgent care in South Jersey. Don’t wait, if you are experiencing:

Acute onset of a painfully swollen joint
Pain, swelling, and numb fingers or toes in a patient with a solid cast which could be the results of compression syndrome

- This is a center where patients can go the have their disabled joint biological resurfaced, realigned, and stabilized without having the joint replaced by artificial materials such as metal and plastic.
