FREEPORT, Ill., August 16, 2016 — Whether it’s a twinge in your volleyball player’s shoulder, a sore ankle for your football player or your tennis player’s achy elbow, sports injuries shouldn’t be taken lightly.
Orthopaedic specialist Gregory Dammann, MD and the FHN Rehab Services team will offer free sports injury evaluations at a series of Saturday morning walk-in sports injury clinics this fall. Check in at the Orthopaedics department at FHN Family Healthcare Center – Burchard Hills, 1010 W. Fairway Drive in Freeport with your student athlete (a parent or legal guardian must accompany all patients under the age of 18) from 8 – 9 a.m. Saturdays August 27 through Oct. 22 for a free evaluation.
If the injury is a simple strain, our team will advise you on home care and you can be on your way. If it’s a more serious injury, you’ve taken the first step toward recovery. Necessary x-rays, supplies, and follow-up visits will be charged accordingly.
