Complimentary Injury Screenings
Nagging pain in your lower back? Popping in your knee as you run? Not sure where to turn?
Complimentary injury screenings are evaluations performed by a Licensed Physical Therapist (PT) or Certified Athletic Trainer (ATC) in our physical therapy clinic as a means to help our patients determine what is the best treatment solution for non-emergency conditions. An IBJI clinician will explain the extent of the injury and educate the patient on an appropriate treatment protocol.
- The services provided by the PT or ATC shall in no way be considered a substitute for the services of a physician, and will function only under the outlines set forth by the Illinois Department of Professional Regulations.
- Parents are asked to call at least an hour ahead of time to ensure availability of our staff.
- A parent/guardian must be present to sign a Consent to Treat form for all minors. If over 18, the athlete must show a form of ID for proof of age.
- Per federal guidelines, beneficiaries of federally funded plans are not eligible for complimentary injury screens.
