Free Bumps & Bruises Clinic for School Athletes

September 8, 2016

Mercy Fort Scott Orthopedics and Sports Medicine offers free evaluations of student athlete injuries at the Saturday morning Bumps & Bruise Clinic. The clinic opens at 7 a.m. and student athletes are seen on a first come, first served basis. The free clinic runs through the fall sports season. 

Athletes are seen in Mercy Health for Life, located in the lower level of Mercy Hospital.  Mercy’s Orthopedic Nurse Practitioner Greg King and Emily Lipiec, 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.

For more information about the free Bumps & Bruises Clinic, call Mercy Health for Life at 620-223-7073.
