At OrthoNOW®, our sports medicine expertise provides immediate care for athletes and enthusiasts alike. 

Whether it’s a minor sprain or a sports-related injury, our walk-in center offers specialized treatment to help you swiftly get back to your active lifestyle.


There’s no denying the fact that sports related injuries are on the rise among our youth in America. Why? Because children are more active than ever before – participating in higher level sports and starting at younger ages. Their growth plates are also still developing making them particularly susceptible to overuse injuries and fractures. And because their bones heal so quickly, it’s critical they get proper diagnosis and treatment fast, to ensure they heal correctly and avoid potential for long term issues.

The American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons reports that 3.5 million children under 15 are treated for sports injuries each year. Recreational and sports related injuries account for approximately 3.2 million visits to emergency rooms a year for children ages 5-14. 

But what happens at the ER? Parents wait several hours only to be referred to see an orthopedic specialist and pay again.OrthoNOW’s neighborhood centers provide comprehensive orthopedic care on a walk-in basis for youth sports injuries, sports-focused rehabilitation services and concussion care.


When it comes to injuries, kids are not the only ones “at risk”. Adults sometimes overestimate their abilities to “play like they used to” in their youth and push themselves to the point of injury. 

Whether you’re a weekend warrior, walking enthusiast, amateur or elite athlete, or if you have a child playing youth sports, you’re probably familiar with sports injuries. 

Now you can save time, money and the aggravation of multiple referrals by making OrthoNOW your first visit and leave fully treated in less than one hour.
