Athletes injured in Friday night games can now get care as late as 11 p.m.

Just in time for the start of a new sports season, Novant Health has opened its black and blue clinic dedicated to the evaluation and treatment of sports-related injuries. The clinic, located at Novant Health Urgent Care – Waverly on 11840 Southmore Drive, suite 100, in Charlotte, is open Friday evenings from 10 to 11 p.m.

Staffed by board-certified primary care sports medicine physicians and athletic trainers, the black and blue clinic is a cost-efficient, time-saving alternative to the emergency room.

No appointment is necessary and most insurance plans are accepted.

“Novant Health is excited to continue to provide care for high school athletes again this fall,” said Dr. Eric Warren, medical director of sports medicine. “Our staff is prepared to diagnose and treat common sports-related injuries, including ankle sprains, broken bones and concussions. For high school student athletes, the clinic is one of the fastest and safest possible options for them to return to their chosen sport in a timely manner.”
