Time is of the essence when you have an orthopedic emergency. Immediate diagnosis and treatment often lead to more effective recovery and healing. That is why we designed and built dedicated regional orthopedic urgent care clinics devoted solely to managing arm, leg, hip, hand, foot, and back orthopedic emergencies. Each clinic includes experts in diagnostics, therapies, and surgical and nonsurgical treatments, who provide personalized, integrative, and optimum care quickly, accurately, and at an affordable cost. And since we are a part of a larger, integrated orthopedic practice, you can receive follow-up care at any one of our 4 convenient urgent care locations.

Common Injuries Treated at Orthopedic Urgent Care

At EmergeOrtho—Blue Ridge Region, our urgent care professionals treat emergencies caused by a number of incidents, including slips, falls, hard hits to the body, sports injuries, and in-home and work accidents. Some of the most common orthopedic issues we treat include:

  • Sprains and strains
  • Broken bones
  • Closed fractures (in which bone does not break the skin)

Major Injuries We Do Not Treat

There are some major orthopedic emergencies that we do not manage at our ortho urgent care. Individuals suffering from any of the following issues should immediately get to a local urgent care or hospital emergency room:

  • Nonorthopedic care
  • Open fractures (in which bone is protruding from the skin)
  • Head or facial trauma
  • Partial or full amputations
  • Chest injuries

What to Expect When You Visit Your Ortho Urgent Care

Whether you walk in or have an appointment, you will receive a prompt evaluation and comprehensive care specific to your injury or condition. Unlike traditional urgent care, where greater emergencies take precedence, there is no long waiting period. We simply treat each patient as our top priority.

Since we treat acute and chronic injuries to bones, joints, ligaments, muscles, and tendons exclusively, there will not be patients with flu cases, contagious conditions, or other nonorthopedic complaints in the waiting room. Our trained orthopedic professionals begin with a relevant history of your injury and overall health, conduct a focused physical exam, order and interpret relevant lab and imaging tests, come to a working diagnosis, and initiate appropriate treatment.

State-of-the-Art Diagnostic and Treatment Facilities

Each Blue Ridge Region urgent care clinic can evaluate, diagnose, and treat injuries, traumas, and pain. We are equipped with the most advanced diagnostic and imaging tools and services for rapid, precision diagnoses, including:

  • Digital X-ray

Available at our South Asheville location:

  • MRI
  • EMG Nerve Test/Electromyogram
  • Weight-Bearing CT Scan
