At Proliance Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine, we care for kids! Our investment in children extends beyond the care received within the walls of our clinics. Our doctors have answered the call of local high school football teams to have a dedicated physician at all games. With Washington state regulations in place, parents and school officials can rest assured that their children only play this contact sport if a professional doctor deems them fit for play.
The rise of concussion awareness, as well as other long-term injuries, has played a big part in the initiative for higher safety precautions. Each fall, Proliance Orthopaedics dedicates hundreds of volunteer hours to local community high school sports teams. This commitment brings personal satisfaction to our Sports Medicine Physicians, who went into the field with an expressed interest in caring for athletes. We believe this program provides a great support and value to the schools we serve as well.
For Proliance Orthopaedics Doctors, it’s not only about keeping the kids safe, it’s about giving back to the community and becoming part of the team. The care we give is critical to the players’ experience. It’s the difference between a player getting back in the game or sometimes never playing again. That in the moment call makes all the difference for the athlete and for Proliance Orthopaedics, it’s why we do what we do.
We proudly serve six of the local East side high schools, and hope to continue to grow this outreach program in our community.
