Roper St. Francis introduces free sports injury clinic

Roper St. Francis Healthcare is giving back to the community by holding its free sports injury clinic at Bon Secours St. Francis Hospital.

The clinic allows middle and high school athletes who may have suffered an injury the night before to have a free evaluation by one of Roper’s orthopedic doctors or athletic trainers who specialize in sports medicine. It runs each Saturday morning from 9 to 11 a.m. from Aug. 31 to Nov. 2.

“We’re proud to work closely with Charleston County Public Schools by providing trainers and doing everything we can to keep student athletes healthy before, during and after the games,” said Kyle Prothro, Roper St. Francis Healthcare Sports Medicine Manager. “We’re fans too and this is our way of giving back to the community with the weekly sports injury clinic. It fulfills our mission to provide compassionate care for all.”

With family practice, Express Care and physical therapy facilities across the Lowcountry, Roper St. Francis is ready for anything athletes need.

The clinic is run on a first-come, first-served basis. The initial exam is free. Additional services may come with a fee.
