Can you treat my injury?

Some 99% of musculoskeletal injuries are appropriate for visits to OrthoQUICK. But there are certain instances when the emergency room or urgent care provides a better choice, and we want you to be educated about what those are so you can make the right decision for care.

OrthoQUICK is open 7 days a week, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. For assistance, please call the OrthoQUICK clinic (651) 968-5806.
