If you have experienced a recent injury to your muscles, ligaments, tendons, joints, or bones that’s causing discomfort, but not severe enough for the emergency room, you don’t have to wait to be seen.

Indiana University Health offers walk-in services for orthopedic injuries for patients ages 13 and older. Walk-in services are available at IU Health Methodist and West Hospitals. IU Health also offers access to same-day care with primary care sports medicine physicians.

Strain or sprain?

Indiana University Health

Once injured, pain may tell you something is wrong, but you may not know what to call your injury, much less how to treat it. Is it a strain, a sprain or something else? A strain is an injury to a muscle or a tendon, like a rotator cuff muscle or bicep. A sprain is caused by a direct or indirect trauma that knocks a joint out of position or overstretches it and, in severe cases, ruptures a ligament.
