Healthier Me: Sports Injuries

Posted: Updated:


With tournaments just around the corner and high school athletes coming into their prime, it's also prime time for athletic injuries. 


In Wednesday's Healthier MeValley News Team's Lisa Budeau has the report on an easier way for injured athletes -- or those of us a who are, well, a little less sporty -- to get checked out in a pinch.

 It's pretty common for basketball players to roll an ankle, and it's sometimes hard to avoid; yet, while a sprain might only keep a basketball player out for a week or two, a pulled or torn ligament could mean a premature end to the season.

If something doesn't feel right, doctors encourage you to err on the side of caution and have yourself checked out; enter the Sanford Orthopedics & Sports Medicine Walk-In Clinic. 

The Sanford Orthopedics & Sports Medicine Walk-In Clinic is open Monday through Friday, and you don't need to have an appointment or even be an athlete to receive care.

 If, for example, a fall on an icy sidewalk caues you to twist your ankle or sprain your wrist, the walk-in clinic may be the perfect place to get a little medical advice to get you back on your feet.
