Southeast SportsCare will provide free athletic injury screenings at HealthPoint Fitness in Cape Girardeau. The screenings, performed by certified athletic trainers, will be held Monday mornings from 7 to 9 a.m., beginning April 29. No appointment is necessary.
Weekend warriors often have higher rates of injuries, but don’t always have treatment readily available, says Southeast SportsCare Program Manager Matthew Carter. “An athlete’s desire to stay healthy does not diminish based on the level of competition,” he adds. “This service will provide recreational athletes with the same care that would be offered to an elite or competitive amateur athlete.”
HealthPoint Fitness Director of Operations Jack Hembree encourages athletes not to let their injuries go unchecked. “If you’re a weekend warrior and a little dinged up, stop by our Monday morning injury screening. We can get you on the path to recovery.”
The evaluations will be done on a first-come, first-served basis. For more information, contact Southeast SportsCare at 573-986-6635.
