WILMINGTON, MA — Excel Orthopaedics is excited to offer a preseason concussion and injury risk screening clinic for Wilmington Youth Lacrosse on Saturday, April 4th from 9am-12pm at Excel Orthopedics, 200 Unicorn Park, Woburn, MA, 3rd floor.
As part of this screening each athlete will receive:
- A baseline concussion assessment through the Balance Error Scoring System test. This can be used as part of concussion management if a concussion is suspected during the season or any point in thefuture.
- A functional movement screen and lower extremity neuromuscular control screen, which will be used to identify each athlete’s relative risk for injury. We will give each athlete some exercises to address any deficits or imbalances found and help reduce the likelihood of injury.
Testing will be done on first-come, first-serve basis and will take approximately 30 minutes to complete.
The cost of this testing would typically be over $100 but Excel Orthopaedics is excited to be able to offer this as a fundraiser for Wilmington Youth Lacrosse for $15 per child. All proceeds will be donated back to WYLA.
Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, April 3rd.
