Chelsea Orthopedic Urgent Care Launches Updated Website

OrthoExpress offers treatment of orthopedic injuries and chronic conditions in adults and children. The clinic is open seven days a week for walk-in cases with no appointment required.

OrthoExpress Urgent Care is pleased to announce that their updated website describes the menu of services available from the Chelsea orthopedic urgent care team. OrthoExpress specializes in the treatment of orthopedic injuries and chronic conditions in adults and children. They are open seven days a week. The orthopedic center accepts walk-ins with no appointment required. Patients are treated directly by the team of orthopedic experts, just like emergency rooms refer to, only without the high cost or needless waiting.

Many times, the ER will refer patients to orthopedic experts. The patient can avoid both the wait at the ER and wait for a referral appointment by coming to OrthoExpress Urgent Care first. Unlike other urgent care clinics in central Alabama, OrthoExpress focuses on being a gateway to specialized orthopedic care, rather than being an extension of a physician practice. Patients need a fast diagnosis and treatment for orthopedic pain and injuries.

A spokesperson for the clinic explained, “We have seen that patients also need access to orthopedic specialists when most injuries occur, which is most often during the weekends and in the late afternoon after work and after school. That is when we are here to help. We can help when trying to decide if your pain needs immediate or more complex treatment like surgery or advanced imaging. The orthopedic specialists at OrthoExpress can treat immediate orthopedic pain and injuries such as broken bones, ankle sprains, and shoulder dislocations and we will help expedite our patient’s care to another specialist or service when additional treatment is required.”

“Broken bones can often be treated conservatively” he continued, “with just a cast or splint, but in many situations do require further treatment. It is important to treat a broken bone right away to ensure the bone heals in the proper position, and to make sure the vessels and nerves close by are unharmed. At OrthoExpress, an orthopedic specialist will take an X-Ray to determine what treatment option is best for your fracture. Casts and splints are applied onsite at OrthoExpress.”
