Sports Medicine Outreach is a community based program to help support local student-athletes at youth, high school, and collegiate levels while also providing orthopedic physician coverage to the Danville Braves by Jonathan Krome, M.D. This extensive outreach program helps improve athletic programs by educating them on preventing and managing sports related injuries. The provision of services is a means to support and augment care provided by local medical providers by offering the services of licensed athletic trainers traveling to and visiting schools on site.

This program helps insure that injuries are recognized early, treated immediately and appropriately, thereby allowing injuries to heal properly and reducing the risk of serious injury or re-injury. Our community outreach is an important component of our sports medicine division. Hundreds of game events are covered in all types of sports each year. We help provide “on the field or sideline” coverage for sporting events.

Our fall weekend walk-in sports clinics, is another major focus of our outreach efforts. In addition, pre-participation physical examinations are a part of the overall community program to help support the schools, parents, coaches, and student-athletes. Contact your coach so they may contact the Certified Athletic Trainer responsible for your school to schedule a time to be evaluated and/or treated.

A partner of the Spectrum Medical Outreach Program has been the support of the S.P.O.R.T. Foundation. The foundation was established in 2000 as a 501 (c) (03) non-profit organization designed to help and support the local high schools of Pittsylvania County and Danville Schools and their student–athletes. This Foundation is in honor of Charles “Smitty” Smith, PT that passed away in March 2013. Smitty had been practicing Physical Therapy and Athletic Training for over 40 years supporting local athletic programs mainly with George Washington High School. S.P.O.R.T. Foundation has been supportive for raising funds to help offset the cost for supplies, game coverage, and bracing needs of student-athletes each year.

If you are wanting to know more about how to help the foundation or looking for more information, contact Aaron Taylor, MS, ATC at (434) 793-4711 ext. 354 or (434) 797-1807. Also you can visit the website at www.sport-foundation.com.

High School Physicals/Screenings

It is important for the forms to be filled out by parent or guardian and signed. Pages 1,2,&4 need to be completed before the doctor will evaluate and sign the form for clearance for participation. There are occasions that a student-athlete may need further evaluation from another medical doctor due to issue such as but not limited to high blood pressure, scoliosis, recent or prolonged injuries, or medical conditions that are being followed and treated by another medical doctor. 

If your child has missed the physicals offered at the schools, you can call (434) 793-4711 ext. 354 to schedule a visit with a Doctor or Physician Assistant. The cost is $35 that is donated to the S.P.O.R.T. Foundation. 

DISCLAIMER: The screenings/physicals offered out at the high schools do not take the place of your Medical Doctor and full physical examination. The screening is to allow participation in VHSL sanctioned events.
