The warmer spring weather often motivates people to re-establish an exercise schedule, to connect with friends for recreational weekend activities, or to start training for the summer’s competitive sports leagues. However, shortly after lacing up those jogging shoes, taking some practice shots, or tossing a few balls, a sharp muscle pain, “click” of the shoulder, or “pop” in the knee suddenly returns. It’s a disappointing reminder of the nagging injury that just won’t go away.

The good news is you don’t have to be sidelined trying to figure out how to fix that bothersome injury on your own. Northwest Community Healthcare (NCH) is hosting a free Sports Injury Clinic for anyone seeking expert advice about a sports related injury or sports performance concern. The Clinic will be held Monday, May 14, from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the NCH Wellness Center at 900 West Central Road in Arlington Heights.

At the Clinic, NCH licensed athletic trainers and physical therapists will take a brief history and perform a physical screening to identify what may be limiting an athlete’s physical activity. Attendees are given documented recommendations for follow-up care and encouraged to share findings of the screening assessment with their physician.

“The Clinic is a great resource for active adults and local athletes who are looking for a convenient, quick and cost-free physical screening assessment,” said Karen McCauley, director of NCH’s Physical Rehabilitation Services.

The Sports Injury Clinic is just one component of NCH’s comprehensive Sports Medicine Program. If the need for a formalized rehabilitation plan arises, these specially trained experts can help athletes, who are 14 years and older, return to activity quickly and safely. The goal is build an athlete’s speed, agility, strength and/or endurance.

“Our team uses the latest rehabilitation methods and tools to develop customized exercise programs,” McCauley explained. “Since the program is based out of NCH’s Wellness Center, recuperating athletes have access to the facility’s expansive fitness center, warm water therapy pool and lap pool.”

To reserve a time for a free screening assessment at NCH’s Sports Injury Clinic, call 847.618.3575. Appointments are limited. For more information about the Sports Medicine Program and other physical rehabilitation services at NCH, visit
