St. Joseph Medical Center and Elite Sports Medicine are teaming up to provide screenings specifically tailored for  elite athletes on Saturday, July 26, 8 a.m.-2 p.m. at St. Joseph at I-435 and State Line Road in Kansas City.

The screening includes:

  • Full sports physical by family care physicians
  • Orthopedic screening/assessment
  • Impact study—(baseline for concussion if indicated)
  • Cardiac screening EKG (ECHO if indicated)
  • Physical therapy screening and education (core strength, ACL and ankle stability)

“Elite athletes demand a lot from their bodies,” says Jenn Leonard, PT, Director of  Orthopedic Services and Therapies at St. Joseph Medical Center. “We designed these screenings to take care of the whole athlete in one visit, because for them to reach their peak performance, they need multidisciplinary attention.”

Leonard says that the education being provided is as important as the screenings. “We see lot of the same kind of injuries in athletes playing a particular sport, so learning how to train to prevent those injuries is important. “

The cost of the comprehensive screening is $100 (check only—paid in full prior to appointment). To make an appointment, call Kansas City Family Medical Care at 816-941-9030.
