CINCINNATI (WKRC) - With football season in full swing, area doctors' offices are filling up with injuries.

The week started off busy Monday for OrthoCincy Urgent Care in Edgewood.

The team wants to remind everyone they have after-hour care for several problems.

"So, problems with their bones, joints, bruises, strains, sprains can come in any time and be seen almost immediately," said Dr. John Fritch, a surgeon and sports medicine specialist at OrthoCincy.

From X-rays right on sight, to immediate after care if needed, one of the things this does is keep you out of the emergency room, and keep you from having to wait for full evaluation and casting or support.

"We have direct connections to all those subspecialty surgeons, as well, so, if you have a true ankle or foot fracture, we can get you in to see a specialist," Dr. Fritch said. "If you need a surgery, if you have a spine injury, a back problem, we can get you into one of our non-operative spine physicians to see if you'd be a candidate for injections or other treatment."
