When to Visit an Emergency Room

While many injuries and conditions can be treated at an orthopedic urgent care clinic, severe orthopedic injuries require emergency medical attention as they have a higher risk of complications and can even be life-threatening.

If you experience any of the following, we advise that you seek emergency medical care as quickly as possible:

  • Extreme pain and swelling
  • Your bone has broken through your skin and/or an open wound over the fracture (compound fracture).
  • Fractured bone at a severe and/or obscure angle
  • Inability to apply weight to the injured body part
  • Inability to move the affected bone, joint or body part
  • Trouble breathing / passing out / fainting
  • Heavy bleeding / coughing or throwing up blood
  • Deep cuts and/or lacerations or the area is burned
  • You’ve suffered from a head injury or concussion.
  • You are experiencing severe neck pain.
  • You’ve experienced an injury to the jaw or face.
  • Red skin surrounding the affected area
