Arlington Orthopedic Urgent Care
No-Wait Treatment for Fractures & Strains
Urgent Care is not Emergency Care. If you were involved in a serious accident, call 911 for immediate assistance. Fractures occur when overwhelming forces cause bones to crack or break. Usually, this occurs in the setting of acute trauma, such as a motor vehicle accident or a bad fall.
Other times, fractures can occur from repetitive physical stress, such as running and playing sports. Even minor fractures can result in complications if not properly treated. Fractures require evaluation with a physician, and more severe fractures need to be referred to an orthopedic specialist.
You can walk into our clinic anytime or call (817) 799-7273 to set up a same-day appointment for orthopedic urgent care in Arlington.

Sprains and Strains
Sprains are injuries to ligaments and capsules of the joints. Strains are injuries to the muscles and tendons of the body. Sprains and strains are among the most common injuries seen in Urgent Care. Like fractures, they can occur in an acute trauma setting, or from more repetitive stress. Symptoms include pain, swelling, bruising, and loss of function.
The tendons are the flexible tissue that connects bones to muscles. Tendons are very durable, making tendon injuries very rare but serious. Severe tendon injuries are called ruptured tendons. These occur when the tendon snaps or breaks open and are most commonly caused by an injury. Your risk for tendon ruptures increases with steroid injections to the tendons and secondary medical conditions that weaken the tendons, like gout.
Symptoms of a tendon injury include:
- A snapping or popping sound when the injury occurs
- Rapid bruising
- Difficulty moving the injured area
- Weakness that makes it difficult to bear weight
In some cases, a tendon injury can result in a complete inability to use the affected arm or leg. At Urgentology Care, we can diagnose your tendon injury and get you started on an appropriate treatment plan.
