Brown County Hospital Physical Therapy Department is Offering a Free Student Athlete Sports Clinic

The sports clinic is designed to screen athletes with injuries, to suggest possible treatments, or to refer to appropriate sources.  Student athletes will be seen by a board certified physical therapist that is educated in orthopedic testing for all joints.  There is no need to schedule an appointment.  Students will be seen from 9:00AM to 11:00AM in the Physical Therapy Department.  We have direct contact with New West Sports Orthopedic team on the day of the clinic and can likely set up appointments in Kearney if needed or Dr. Heubner from New West will be at Brown County Hospital on a two times a month schedule.  This is a free clinic that can lead to early prevention of injuries and help athletes return as soon as possible to the sports they enjoy.
