Is that injury just a bump, nasty bruise or something much more? Mercy Orthopedics and Sports Medicine offers free evaluations of student athlete injuries at the Saturday morning Bumps and Bruise Clinic. The clinic will continue each Saturday morning through the fall sports season.
Mercy’s free Bumps and Bruises Clinic resumed on Saturday, September 6 at 7 a.m. at Mercy Health for Life located in the lower level of Mercy Hospital. Athletes are seen on a first come, first serve basis. Mercy Orthopedic Nurse Practitioner Greg King and Andrew Wisniewski, ATC/LAT, will conduct the clinic.
High school and middle school athletes injured during an accredited athletic event may have their injury assessed by a clinician at the clinic. If the athlete is under 18 years old, a parent or legal guardian must accompany them for permission to treat.
Appointments are not necessary, however it is recommended to arrive early to allow adequate time for treatment. If necessary, diagnostic services are available on site and will be billed to the athlete‘s insurance.
