Orthopedic and Sports Medicine Walk-In Clinic Offering Treatment to Anyone

CoxHealth's Orthopedic and Sports Medicine Walk-in Clinic is now offering treatment for any orthopedic injuries--no appointment necessary.  The clinic has been treating sports injuries on a walk-in basis for several year.  But it's opened up the service to injuries that aren't sports-related.

Teh clinic will see patients for things like fractures; minor dislocations; foot, andle, leg, knee, hip, shoulder, wrist and hand injuries; overuse injuries and concussions.  It also treats heat-related illnesses and offers sports physicals.

Dr. Shannon Woods, the clinic's medical director, said timely treatment for orthopedic injuris is crucial to making a good recovery.

No appointment is needed for any of the services at the clinic, which are provided by sports medicine and orthopedic physicians and practitioners.  It's open Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., and is located in CoxHealth's Bone and Joint Center, 3555 S. National.
