The Center for Orthopedics to Host 7th Annual Sports Physical Event

Wednesday, May 27, 2015

SHEFFIELD VILLAGE, OH – The Center for Orthopedics will host its 7th Annual Sports Physical event on Friday, June 5, from 1 – 6 p.m. This event is free and open to all students who are required to receive a physical before starting a school-sanctioned program.

Several area physicians will be donating their time to perform the physicals, including the doctors based at The Center for Orthopedics. The medical portion of the physicals will be provided by local physicians of varying specialties; while the orthopedic examination will be performed by one of the board-certified physicians of The Center for Orthopedics. These highly trained and skilled specialists have been recognized locally, regionally and nationally in the discipline of orthopedic medicine, and serve as the orthopedic team of the Cleveland Gladiators as well as the Lake Erie Crushers.

Last year, more than 750 students from greater than 25 schools received physicals, and this year’s event is expected to be an even bigger success.

To participate, student athletes should download the OHSAA (Ohio High School Athletic Association) physical form from their school’s web site or the OHSAA site, and bring it with them to the event. The student’s medical history forms that have been signed by a parent or guardian are required as well.

Each student who receives a physical will also receive a “goody bag” and a free t-shirt, while supplies last. So, make your reservation today! Log on to http://center4orthopedics.eventbrite.com/ to schedule your check-in time. The deadline to RSVP is Monday, June 1. Please call 440-329-2860 for additional information.

The Center for Orthopedics is located at 5001 Transportation Drive in Sheffield Village.
