Baseball, bonfires, barbecue and beach trips! Summer in North Carolina is a time for families to be outdoors and on the move! And, never has this been truer than this summer, as we enjoy more and more opportunities for fun and gatherings in this post-pandemic era.
Yet, with physical activity comes the unavoidable possibility for injuries, bumps and bruises. Especially when many of us have not been as active recently as we would like to be! That’s where the compassionate and skilled professionals at Novant Health Orthopedics & Sports Medicine come in. At Novant Orthopedics, the mission is to deliver remarkable care for orthopedic conditions and injuries right when you need it. They offer same-day scheduling for acute injuries, as well as walk-in hours each weekday, so you can receive care on your schedule.
From “weekend warrior” injuries to those sustained by both adult and youth athletes, Novant Orthopedics has a host of gifted sports medicine surgeons ready to help get you safely and comfortably on the road to recovery.
