Samaritan Sweet Home Physical Rehabilitation & Sports Medicine is now offering a free sports medicine clinic for student athletes who have recently sustained a sports injury.
Physical therapists at the clinic will assess the student’s injury on a first-come, first-served basis every Wednesday from 4 to 5 p.m. at the clinic, 646 Holley Road. The assessment does not require a referral from the student’s primary care provider.
This service is available to any student athlete in east Linn County, age 6 to 18. The student’s parent must be at the appointment as well.
A session will consist of:
- A brief screening to assess the injury.
- Education about the injury and how to treat it at home.
- Clinical advice for practice and classroom modification to promote safe return to the classroom and sports activities.
- Clinical advice as to what, if any, further formal treatment is necessary.
For more information, call 541-451-6272.
