When you have an injury, the unknown can be scary. That’s why we want you to fully understand exactly what to expect during your orthopaedic walk-in visit at Access Sports Medicine — whether it’s your first appointment or even if you’ve seen us before.
From intake to your visit with an orthopaedic provider, here’s what you can expect from our two walk-in injury clinics:
What We Treat
Our walk-in injury care clinics treat orthopaedic and sports injuries, which involve the bones, muscles or joints. Some of these can include:
- ACL injuries
- Shoulder/rotator cuff injuries
- Broken or fractured bones
- Wrist and elbow injuries
- Knee pain/injuries
- Hamstring injuries
- Back/spine injuries
We can also handle workers’ compensation injuries.
Our facilities have wheelchairs available for patients who are unable to walk, which can be found in our lobby or requested at reception.
The Check-in Process
When you arrive at our walk-in injury care clinic, make sure you bring a current, valid form of I.D. and your current insurance card. We’ll need you to fill out some forms, which should only take a few minutes to complete. You can download these forms below to streamline the process:
If you are not sure if you need a referral from your primary care physician or insurance company, it’s always best to ask for one and bring it to our office. And don’t worry: The wait time at our walk-in clinics is very minimal — usually only five to 10 minutes, which is typically due to the paperwork.
Your Appointment with an Orthopaedic Provider
Our walk-in clinics are fully staffed by our orthopaedic physicians, physician assistants and nurse practitioners — all of whom have experience in orthopaedic and sports medicine injuries. While we do have specialists available in our office, all providers can assess and treat our walk-in injury patients, regardless of injury type.
During your visit with the provider, they will take your height and weight and review your paperwork. They will also ask you questions about what brings you to the walk-in clinic. After a physical assessment of the injury, the provider may order X-rays or other digital imaging services.
Our orthopaedic providers make a recovery plan for every patient with an injury. Depending on the condition and type of injury, this plan may include:
- Follow-up appointments
- Surgical procedures
- Occupational therapy
- Physical therapy
- Non-surgical treatments
Before you leave, we will collect any copays and schedule any necessary follow-up appointments. From there, we hope you will be on your way to a full recovery!
One of the benefits of visiting our walk-in injury care centers is that we have quick access to physical therapists, occupational therapists and trainers, as well as state-of-the-art diagnostic technology. So, when you visit an Access Sports Medicine injury care facility, you can find comfort in knowing that everything you need to get better is under one roof.
