Free sports injury evaluations every Saturday in Georgetown

Local student-athletes hurt during the fall sports season can have their injuries evaluated for free by the same experts as the pros.

For the fourth consecutive year, the Tidelands Health Sports Medicine Institute is offering free sports injury screening clinics for children and teens during the fall sports season.

The clinics will be offered every Saturday from Aug. 19-Oct. 21 in Georgetown and are open to student-athletes in middle and high school. A team of physicians and physician assistants with decades of experience treating high school, college and professional athletes will be on hand to offer free injury evaluations and treatment recommendations.

As a regional leader in sports medicine, Tidelands Health is the official health care provider of the Myrtle Beach Pelicans and the official health system of the Coastal Carolina University Chanticleers.

The injury clinics will be held from 8-10 a.m. at Tidelands NextStep Rehabilitation Services, 219 Church St. in Georgetown. Appointments are not required.

“Student-athletes don’t earn salaries like the pros, but they deserve the same expert medical care,” said Tidelands Health physician Dr. William Greer, a board-certified orthopedic and sports medicine surgeon and a former team physician for the Pittsburgh Pirates. “Our goal is to help kids return to the sports they love as quickly and safely as possible.

“It’s part of our mission to help people live better lives through better health.”
