Acute Injury

Welcome to Montana Orthopedics! We treat thousands of injuries every year and we can help you find relief.

If you are experiencing an emergency that is severe and needs attention immediately, either go directly to the closest emergency room or dial 9-1-1 NOW!

Many patients delay in making an appointment because they are not sure if their injury is serious enough to warrant an office visit. Delaying treatment can make your recovery more difficult. It’s critical that you contact us as soon as possible to be seen and evaluated by one of our specialists.

If your injury is severe, we can generally offer you an appointment on the same day at one of our locations. We will work you in as soon as possible, but there may be a wait. As a full service orthopedic practice, we can treat almost any type of injury in our offices. However, extremely serious injuries such as shoulder dislocations and hip injuries, in which the patient is unable to walk, should go directly to the emergency room.

Relieve Pain and Swelling Right Away

You should apply the RICE method to relieve pain and swelling immediately after an injury. RICE stands for: Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation. Learn more in our Patient Library.
