What Causes Orthopedic Injuries or Problems?

There are many reasons why you would need emergency orthopedic care at Village Emergency Centers, including:

  • Sports injuries
  • Falls
  • Car accidents or other trauma
  • A flare-up of an existing disease, such as osteoarthritis
  • Strain or overextension

Whatever the cause, if you’re experiencing moderate to severe pain and your mobility is compromised, it’s well worth a visit to Village Emergency Centers.

What Can I Expect During My Orthopedic Emergency Visit?

Your Village ER doctor usually starts with your medical history or description of the accident. Next, the doctor conducts a physical examination, including diagnostic testing such as X-rays or blood tests, to determine a diagnosis.

Your Village Emergency Centers doctor then devises a customized treatment plan. Many orthopedic cases can be treated without the need for surgery, relying instead on corrective measures, but in more serious emergency cases, surgery might be the best option. If this is the case, your doctor relieves your current symptoms, stabilizes the injury or problem, and refers you to an orthopedic specialist for further care.

If the doctor is able to treat you at the emergency room, a number of techniques may be used depending upon your problem. These treatments include:

  • Braces
  • Slings
  • Bandaging
  • Casts
  • Pain medication
  • Compression bandages
