Springfield, Mo - There's a new way to be treated quickly for orthopedic injuries. Cox Health's Orthopedic and sports medicine walk in clinic, is now seeing patients, no appointment is necessary.
The Orthopedic department will treat fractures, minor dislocations, overuse injuries, foot, ankle, knee, hip, wrist, and head injuries.
They will also treat sports related concussions, conduct sports physicals and heat-related illnesses.
“We began treating sports injuries on a walk-in basis several years ago, and wanted to expand services to all people with orthopedic injuries,” says Dr. Shannon Woods, medical director of Sports Medicine at Cox Health, on the growth of the walk-in clinic. “Timely treatment for orthopedic injuries is crucial to making a good recovery. Even if someone isn’t sure that something is wrong, it’s better to come in and have it checked out than let it go. This walk-in clinic makes that simple.”
The services are provided by sports medicine, and orthopedic physicians and practitioners.
The clinic is open Monday through Friday, 9 A.M. to 5:50 P.M, and is located at 3555 S. National Ave, in Cox Health's Bone and Joint Center.
