Injuries to the body’s bones, joints and muscles should be evaluated by a qualified orthopedic specialist for proper diagnosis and treatment. The earlier a patient can be seen and treated, the sooner they can begin the recovery process. Our Orthopedics Walk-in is staffed by experts in orthopedics who are available for appointments, usually the same day, to provide comprehensive evaluation and treatment of sport injuries, workplace accidents or other acute injuries that require immediate attention.
The iovera treatment applies focused cold to a specific nerve, creating a small ice ball under the skin. This immediately stops the nerve from sending pain signals due to a process called Wallerian degeneration. This effect on the nerve is temporary and does not cause permanent damage. Over time the nerve regenerates and normal functioning is restored.
