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. We have the highest number of fellowship-trained specialist surgeons in the Blue Ridge region, with 5 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:

- 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 a reservation, you will receive a prompt evaluation and comprehensive care specific to your injury or condition. There is no long waiting period to see a specialist. 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 of our Blue Ridge walk-in clinics 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:
- EMG Nerve Test/Electromyogram
- Weight-Bearing CT Scan
