Orthopedic Urgent Care Vs The Emergency Room

CLINTON TOWNSHIP, Mich., April 1, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- If you are one of the unlucky ones who have ever had a broken bone or had a sprain you know that immediate help is not always available. You either have to get an appointment at your primary care physician and then be referred to an orthopedic specialist, or you can decide to go to the emergency room – and still end up needing to be referred to a specialist. Either way, it can be time consuming and frustrating while you're in pain and unable to get relief.

Choosing an orthopedic urgent care means that you can be seen for broken bones, ACL and meniscus tears, and car accident injuries, all without having to go to the emergency room. And the sooner you receive treatment after an orthopedic injury, the faster you're on the road to recovery. Work accident injuries and sport injuries can also be treated at our orthopedic urgent care.

This saves you time and money, keeping you out of a place designated for life-threatening injuries. Standard wait times in the emergency room are rarely less than an hour and are often upwards of several hours. To top that off, the cost of your visit can be quite expensive. According to Consumer Health Ratings, the average expense for 1 visit to the ER in 2013 was $1,423! Once seen in the emergency room, you still may have to be referred to an orthopedic specialist, making the road to recovery a tedious and drawn out process.
