Our practice handles orthopedic and sports injuries, including urgent care, but sometimes an injury requires immediate, emergency care.
Use your best judgment about going to an emergency room instead of an orthopedic urgent care clinic, particularly in cases that include:
- Loss of consciousness
- Head or neck injuries
- Sudden, severe, and increasing pain that does not subside with rest or ice
- Severe bleeding
- Protruding bones
In many cases, however, you can save time and money by visiting a Methodist Sports Medicine Orthopedic Urgent Care Clinic. For injuries that are acute but not life-threatening, our orthopedic urgent care clinics in Carmel and Greenwood help you see a specialist faster so you get the care you need right away.
