Essentia Health now offering walk-in care in Brainerd for orthopedic injuries

Essentia Health is excited to begin offering walk-in care specifically for orthopedic injuries.

The Essentia Health St. Joseph’s-Orthopedics Clinic, located at 2014 S 6th St in Brainerd, is open for walk-in care from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. The clinic’s care team includes Dr. Andrew Zhao, a sports medicine physician.

“The walk-in clinic is a great way for patients to receive high-quality orthopedic care for any new injuries,” Dr. Zhao said. “My team and I are here to help you keep up with your active lifestyle!”

The clinic will provide care for a wide range of injuries, such as:

  • Sudden injuries that cause swelling or pain
  • Simple bone breaks (no bone sticking out of the skin)
  • Muscle, tendon, ligament and joint strains and sprains
  • Broken collarbones
  • Shoulder injuries
  • Torn biceps, triceps or quadriceps
  • Wrist and forearm injuries
  • Lower extremity (foot, ankle, knee, hip) injuries

Onsite services include x-ray, casting and splinting, braces and stitches for simple lacerations. Also, one floor before our orthopedic clinic is St. Joseph’s Rehabilitation Center, so if patients need physical or occupational therapy, it’s available in the same building.
