Injuries and Appointments
The health and safety of your student-athlete is the number one priority for coaches, the sports medicine team, and you as parents/guardians. In the event that your student-athlete sustains an injury while participating in sports at East Wake Academy, all information will be communicated to you as soon as possible. A member of the sports medicine team will discuss the status of your student-athlete with you and explain the injury and any treatment recommendations. The details of an injury will only be shared with those directly involved in caring for the athlete.
If the athlete is recommended to see or follow up with a doctor, the sports medicine team can facilitate an appointment with Orthopedic Specialists of North Carolina (link to website: www.orthonc.com) within 48 hours. For urgent injuries or on weekends, you may be instructed to take your student-athlete to Orthopaedic Specialists of North Carolina for immediate evaluation.
For your convenience, our office offers two urgent care locations are open 9AM-9PM, 7 days a week. No appointment is necessary and you can reserve your spot in line at www.orthonc.com. Just walk in to be seen and evaluated for your sports injury; a follow up with your team physician will be facilitated.
