Access Sports Medicine & Orthopaedics would like to thank the coaches, parents and athletes that participated in this year’s sports physical pre-participation exam clinics. Two clinics were held earlier this month and students were asked to bring a five dollar donation in exchange for a pre-participation sports physical. Between the two nights, a record 375 student athletes were seen raising more than $1800 for local school’s athletic programs.
Dozens of Access Sports Medicine employees, trainers, and physicians volunteered their time to make the success of the clinics possible. According to the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine’s STOP Sports Injury Campaign, pre-participation sports physical exams are an important first step toward sports injury prevention in youth athletes.
