Specialized Orthopedic Services

In addition to the expansive range of orthopedic emergency services we provide, Urgent Care Asheville offers some specialized advanced techniques, as well.

Advanced Diagnostic Imaging

Our urgent care clinics offer a full suite of advanced imaging services including low-radiation, digital X-ray, and ultrasound. These state-of-the-art technologies aid in accurately diagnosing a range of orthopedic injuries and conditions. Imaging results are delivered immediately to our on-site, board-certified physicians who can start your treatment without delay.

Physical Therapy

Asheville’s physical therapy departments develop personalized rehab treatment plans for ongoing conditions, injury recovery, and post-surgery recovery. They include targeted exercise programs to help you improve your strength, flexibility, and posture.

Targeted Injections

In certain cases, targeted cortisone and other medicinal injections can help reduce inflammation and alleviate pain caused by swelling. Asheville urgent care clinicians are highly skilled in administering these injections to give temporary relief to patients.
