Wake Orthopaedics sponsors a free Youth Sports Injury Prevention Clinic. We join forces with WakeMed, Safe Kids Wake County, DuPuy, and the Carolina RailHawks to offer athletes, parents, and coaches tips and techniques to prevent and manage sport related injuries. The event focuses on ACL and overuse injuries, proper stretching, educational displays on concussions, heart conditions, and the importance of baseline EKG along with proper nutrition and hydration. The youth sports injury prevention clinic is one of several taking place throughout the country as part of a national education campaign focusing on raising awareness.
