Great River Clinic in Mediapolis, Iowa, is offering reduced-price sports
physicals from 1 to 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 8. Great River Health System
will donate half of the $30 physical fee to athletes’ schools for
use in their sports programs. Athletes who receive sports physicals are
not required to live in Mediapolis.
A doctor of nursing practice will provide physical examinations and certified
athletic trainers from Great River Athletic and Performance Center will
conduct flexibility, strength and joint-stability tests. Besides providing
overall health assessments, the physicals may help detect potential problems
that could lead to injuries. If problems are discovered, students will
receive exercise or rehabilitation plans, or be referred to other health
care providers, if necessary.
Payment is required at the time physicals are conducted; insurance will
not be billed. Great River Clinic, Mediapolis, is at 401 N. Orchard. To
