If you are an athlete, the parent of an athlete, or just someone who is active- then this post is for you. It contains all the information you need to know about sports injuries and orthopedic urgent care and has the resources you need should an injury occur.
Sports injuries are one of the most common types of orthopedic injuries and any body part can be injured while practicing or competing in sports. Receiving an early diagnosis is one of the most important parts of the sports injury treatment process.
Aside from the pain and symptoms of the injury itself, one of the most frustrating parts of sustaining a sports injury is having to wait for extended periods of time in the emergency room. Thanks to the creation of our orthopedic urgent care in Wall, NJ this frustration has been eliminated.

Orthopedic urgent care clinics are staffed by trained, skilled, and experienced orthopedic personnel – all of whom are also a part of the awarded team at The Orthopaedic Institute of Central Jersey. Orthopedic specialists lead the orthopedic urgent care team. Team members consist of physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, and orthopedic and x-ray technicians. Patients who choose an orthopedic urgent care clinic will receive an accurate diagnosis and an effective treatment plan.
