Summer fun is over and school is back in session, which means football season has returned! Schools have opened their doors and so has Florida Sports Injury and Orthopedic Institute.
Dr. Varma, Dr. Patterson and Dr. Athans (the newest member of our team) would like to officially announce the commencement of Saturday morning Sports Injury Clinics for the 2014 football season:
WHAT: SATURDAY MORNING SPORTS INJURY CLINIC
WHEN: THROUGHOUT FOOTBALL SEASON STARTING SATURDAY AUGUST 23, 2014, 9AM TO 11AM
WHERE: OUR NEW LOCATION – 1925 DON WICKHAM DRIVE, CLERMONT FLORIDA 34711
WHO: COME SEE DR. VARMA, DR. PATTERSON, DR ATHANS – NO APPOINTMENT NEEDED, WALK INS WELCOME
Dr. Varma, Dr. Athans and Dr. Patterson are pumped! They are excited. They are ready for this season to begin. They are busy behind the scenes meeting with coaches and trainers, they are setting up schedules, they are working very hard to make sure each student, each athlete, each parent, each sports injury is taken care of.
Dr. Patterson says, “There’s nothing quite like watching a well-trained, injury-free athlete out on the field. With all the fun and excitement that sporting events bring to us, unfortunately, the reality is that sports injuries do occur”
Florida Sports Injury and Orthopedic Institute understands the importance for every sports injury to be seen right away, that’s why we have created Saturday morning Sports Injury Clinics as an express priority option for athletes in the area. We don’t want you to have to wait for a weekday appointment in the event of any type of sports-related injury.
Many athletes that are injured out on the field participated in a sporting event the evening before and either didn’t have the medical attention on-site or woke to excruciating pain requiring urgent care. Before going and standing in long ER lines, come to Florida Sports Injury and Orthopedic Institute to be properly evaluated and accessed by an orthopedic physician.
The Saturday morning Sports Injury Clinics are appointment-free; all you have to do is walk in and Dr. Varma, Dr. Patterson or Dr. Athans will take care of you. Athletes from Pop Warner Football all the way up to High School Sports can simply walk in between 9AM and 11AM and be seen every Saturday morning with no appointment necessary. X-rays are taken on-site saving time and allowing you to get faster, accurate assessment and treatment when you come in.
Dr. Varma strongly believes that the earlier an injury is identified, accessed and treated, the better the outcome, and most importantly, the faster the player gets back in the game!
“I treat all athletes, my passion is sports injuries. I am out on the field every Friday night, rain or shine. I am out there supporting our local high schools and communities. My goal is to get you better and back out on that field” says Dr. Varma.
Dr. Athans says “When you come in to see us, we will assist you to better understand your injury and guide you through the healing process, manage your pain and swelling and most importantly educate you on how to strengthen the injured area without causing further damage. We will enable you to return to activity as strong as or stronger than you were before with a decreased risk of re-injury”
Sports Injury Clinics will be held every Saturday throughout the 2014 Football Season starting August 23, 2014 from 9 AM to 11 AM (no appointment necessary).
