Urgent Care + TeleHealth Donates Orthopedic-Grade Ankle Braces to Napa and Benicia Student Athletes

Urgent Care + TeleHealth, urgent care clinics in Napa and Benicia, CA donated hundreds of orthopedic-grade ankle braces to student-athletes in Napa, Benicia and the surrounding communities who are eligible to receive a brace with their sports physical exam.

Urgent Care + TeleHealth clinics, located in Napa and Benicia, have provided their student-athletes with free orthopedic supports.

These braces help keep athletes safe from the most common injury in sports medicine, an ankle sprain. With each sports physical, while supplies last, Urgent Care + TeleHealth is offering a pull-on ballistic nylon ankle support with a figure 8 strapping system and lace up closure at no additional charge.

Ankle injuries are unfortunately very common for athletes. After injuries occur, it is common for the injured area to retain instability making it more likely that a re-injury will occur. Prevention is considered to be the best form of maintaining healthy joints. While taping can help to prevent injuries and is better than nothing, taping must be done correctly and can be time-consuming.

The free ankle supports have proven to be as effective as athletic taping and are used by both collegiate and pro sports teams. For a limited time, each patient can receive free orthopedic products to help prevent acute or chronic injuries related to the feet and ankles with their paid exam.

Led by Emergency Medicine Physician, Dr. Ian Ahwah, the Urgent Care + TeleHealth clinics are walk-in medical facilities that provide convenient, affordable, and quality care 7 days-per-week. The clinics accept many PPO insurance plans and offer cash-pay services. If you or a loved one could benefit from a free orthopedic support, please mention “sports medicine promo” and call the Napa clinic at (707) 377-1007 or the Benicia clinic at (707) 377-1005.

In addition to sports physicals, Urgent Care + TeleHealth provides COVID-19 vaccines and tests. Both clinics have rapid COVID test lab equipment in-house, which allow them to provide same day results for infection, travel and employment.

Handling a variety of urgent-care needs, the team provides comprehensive annual, sports, and DOT physicals, vaccinations, and sports medicine services. The providers are also experienced in occupational medicine to treat work-related injuries.

With the convenience of on-site digital X-rays and laboratory services, the medical team offers fast and accurate diagnoses. They are equipped to perform non-surgical procedures including laceration repair, abscess treatment and IV hydration.

The providers and staff accept most major private insurance plans. In-clinic and Telehealth appointments are available to schedule online for same-day or next-day care for non-emergency medical treatment and can be scheduled using the online booking feature or calling one of the clinics directly.
