Hope Orthopedics will be hosting a free sports physical clinic on Saturday, August 10 from 9 – 11 a.m. The physicals will be provided at Hope Orthopedics of Oregon, located at 1600 State Street in Salem.

Each year, Hope Orthopedics designates a charity to support during this event. This year, Hope Orthopedics will be collecting donations for The Salvation Army’s Apple Tree programs, which helps local kids get the back-to-school supplies they need.

Donations of $5 are requested but not required to receive a physical.

Athletes must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. 

Parents or guardians should complete the School Sports Pre-Participation Examination form ahead of time and bring it to the clinic. Forms can be printed off the school’s website or the Oregon School Activities Association (OSAA).

This is the third consecutive year that Hope Orthopedics will offer free sports physicals to school athletes at the State Street location. 

More than 40 clinicians and administrative staff at Hope Orthopedics of Oregon, Willamette Surgery Center and other area medical clinics volunteer in order to provide the community service.
