Adena Bone and Joint, a department of Adena Regional Medical Center, will again hold its Saturday Morning Sports Injury Clinic for school-age fall athletes.
The Sports Injury Clinic opens Saturday, Aug. 22, 2015 and will be open every Saturday through Oct. 31, 2015; from 9 to 11 a.m. Patients will be seen on a first-come, first-served basis. While the majority of athletes who use the clinic are Friday night high school football players, the clinic is open to fall athletes who are participating in organized athletics within Adena’s 12-county service area.
“If the injury is not an emergency, the Saturday morning clinic is a convenient way for athletes to get the care and treatment they need,” said Adena Sports Medicine’s Dr. Bradley Strauch. “When an athlete is in pain or uncomfortable, we don’t want them to have to wait for several days to be checked out. We can assess the injury and provide treatment during a visit to the clinic, and can also help provide a smooth transition to one of our physicians for any potential follow-up care.”
During the visit, the patient will see a sports medicine provider, and will have access to services such as x-rays, splinting or casting. No appointment or referral is necessary, and the visit is billed as a typical office visit by most insurance plans
To ensure the athlete will be seen by an Adena Sports Medicine provider, patients must check-in for the Saturday morning clinic before 11 a.m. The Saturday Sports Injury Clinic is held at Adena Bone and Joint, which is located in Suite G15 of the Adena Health Pavilion (4437 State Route 159) on the Adena Regional Medical Center campus in Chillicothe.
