Treatment Options for Patients with Shoulder Injuries

When it comes to treating shoulder injuries, one name stands above the rest: Orthopedic Urgent Care. We are the nation’s first and only orthopedic urgent care Center, offering industry-leading orthopedic treatment with unprecedented patient convenience 24/7. Rather than waiting days or even weeks to get in to see your family physician or heading to the emergency room when your injury isn’t exactly an emergency, head to our conveniently located Center and get the expert care you need, when you need it.


Orthopedic Urgent Care is equipped to diagnose and treat a number of different shoulder injuries ranging from relatively minor strains to more complex issues like rotator cuff tears, frozen shoulder, shoulder impingement, shoulder dislocation, throwing injuries, and more. We are staffed by highly experienced and trained orthopedic doctors who can use digital X-rays and a variety of other advanced diagnostic tools to pinpoint the source of your problem in order to recommend the most effective treatment option for you.


Another advantage to Orthopedic Urgent Care is that you don’t need a physician referral to see our team. Elsewhere, the patient experience for shoulder injuries usually entails an appointment with a primary care physician who then recommends an orthopedic specialist to address sports-related injuries and other orthopedic issues. This can take weeks, leaving you dealing with your pain the entire time. With Orthopedic Urgent Care, however, you can come directly to one of our convenient locations. You can make an appointment to be seen 24/7.
