Orthopaedic center to offer sports medicine clinics

FORT COLLINS — The Orthopaedic & Spine Center of the Rockies will open a youth sports medicine outreach program to benefit youth athletes during the upcoming fall, winter and spring seasons.

The program offers a team of experienced sports medicine physicians and resources for sports injury prevention, diagnosis and rehabilitation.

“With on-site medical coverage, free Morning Injury Clinics and a pre-season baseline  concussion testing, Orthopaedic & Spine Center of the Rockies Youth Sports Medicine Outreach Program’s goal is to give coaches, athletes and parents confidence on game day,” said Carli Taylor-Drake, director marketing and practice development for the clinic.

Morning injury clinics will be 7:30 to 9:30 every Monday and Thursday, excluding holidays, at the Loveland, Greeley and Fort Collins locations. “Athletes have certified athletic trainers available for no charge and no appointment necessary,” said Taylor-Drake. “These clinics are made possible by a joint initiative between OCR and UCHealth.”

Pre-season baseline concussion testing is available for a $25 fee per athlete. Interested athletes, parents or coaches may contact Kylie Jasinski by emailing ksteffen@orthohealth.com or calling 970-342-0363.
