Coaches, athletes and parents know where there are sports, there are injuries. Timely assessment and treatment of an athlete’s injury can be critical to their safe return to the sport. McLeod Sports Medicine offers free Saturday morning injury clinics to in-season high school athletes throughout the fall sports season.
The injury clinics are held every Saturday throughout the fall sports season from 8:30 a.m. until 10:00 a.m. at McLeod Family Medicine Health & Fitness, located at the McLeod Health and Fitness Center in Florence. The injury clinics run until November 11, 2017.
The clinics are staffed by McLeod Sports Medicine Certified Athletic Trainers and McLeod physicians and medical providers. During the clinics, the staff provides complimentary medical assessments, x-ray and treatment. If the injury requires additional treatment the athlete is referred to an orthopedic surgeon or other specialist. The most common injuries seen include concussions, bruises, ankle sprains, and knee and shoulder injuries.
