See an Orthopedist: ERs and Urgent Cares are ok for short fixes but not necessarily for a detailed workup. There are a few possible explanations but you should have a proper evaluation by an Orthopedist.

Plan: ER or urgent care will help to do the X-Ray and make diagnosis. You already know the diagnosis and used support treatment. Next step will be physical therapy, and you need referral for this from your doctor.
