Beginning Saturday, Aug. 30, Great River Center for Rehabilitation will offer a free Sports Bump and Bruise Clinic to athletes who incur injuries during school athletic events. The clinic is available from 9 to 11 a.m. every Saturday through the fall sports season at the Center for Rehabilitation, 1401 W. Agency Rd., West Burlington. Appointments are not necessary.

At the clinic, athletic trainers will examine sports-related injuries to determine their severity. As treatment, the athletic trainer may recommend therapeutic exercises and stretching. If the injury is serious enough, the athletic trainer may advise the athlete to see a physician or the on-call orthopedic surgeon. For more information, please call the Center for Rehabilitation at (319) 768-4100.
