How is Rapid Orthopaedic Care Different Than Traditional Urgent Care?

Olympia Orthopaedic Associates provides patients with a unique orthopaedic urgent care experience known as Rapid Orthopaedic Care (ROC). The orthopaedic specialists at our ROC facilities in Olympia and Lacey can quickly diagnose and treat almost all orthopaedic or sports injuries.

Many patients prefer our Rapid Orthopaedic Care over traditional urgent care for the following reasons:

#1: Orthopaedic Specialists Staff at ROC

Our facilities are staffed by Orthopaedic Specialists and Orthopaedic Physician Assistants who have completed rigorous training and have many years of experience treating orthopaedic and sports injuries.

At traditional urgent care facilities, patients usually see a Family Practice, Internal Medicine, Emergency Room Specialists or Physician Assistants. While general urgent cares are great for colds, cases of flu, rashes and infections the specialists in a traditional urgent care do not specialize in orthopaedics.

#2: Treatment is Immediate

After one of our specialists diagnoses an injury, they prescribe a customized treatment plan. Treatment plans usually consist of nonsurgical treatment options like immobilization, activity modification, physical therapy, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and more.

If follow up care is needed, the specialists at Olympia Orthopaedic Associates will already have your medical history, X-rays, and diagnosis when you arrive for a follow-up appointment.

In many cases, patients who go to general urgent care centres are not sure where they should go for follow up care and have to call multiple offices to try to get an appointment. Also, they may need to undergo repeat tests, such as X-rays, which can become both frustrating and expensive.

#3: Follow Up is Easy

Following up after a visit at ROC is very easy. Patients who need follow up care can be seen by the Orthopaedic, Spine or Sports Medicine specialists at Olympia Orthopaedic Associates at any of our locations throughout Olympia.

Patients love this because they can follow up at a time that easily fits into their busy schedule.
