October is National Physical Therapy Month

October 4, 2011

Bozeman Deaconess Rehabilitation Services/Physical Therapy offering free balance screening and injury prevention screening

Sports injury prevention across the lifespan is the focus for 2011 National Physical Therapy Month. Bozeman Deaconess Rehabilitation Services’ physical therapists are offering free screenings during the month of October to keep you healthy and ensure you’re performing at your physical best. Participating in sports helps promote physically active lifestyles. But along with its health benefits, physical activity can lead to sports-related injuries. The key is to avoid injuries that can sideline you for a significant amount of time.

Bozeman Deaconess Rehabilitation Services Manager Colleen Hatcher encourages pre-participation assessments to reduce your risk of sports injury. “Our physical therapists will assess your health history along with your current issues and help develop a plan of care that is customized for you. Our ultimate goal is to assist you with your journey of improved health and mobility.”

Muscle Imbalance Screening
Muscle imbalance screening will be held October 11-13 at Bozeman Deaconess Rehabilitation Services on the Highland Health Park campus. Bozeman Deaconess physical therapists will perform strength testing along with NeuroCom Balance Master® computerized mobility testing to determine balance of strength and muscle control in your legs. This screening may help prevent knee injuries and offer exercises to correct leg muscle imbalances. It may also help to prevent ankle, hip and back injuries. For more information on balance screenings or to make an appointment call 585-1002.

Injury Prevention Screening
The best way to stay healthy is to stay active. It is important to keep your body well and to prevent or treat existing injuries. If you’re experiencing joint or muscle pain, let Bozeman Deaconess physical therapists screen you for injuries. Injury prevention clinics will be held on October 11 and October 25 at Bozeman Deaconess Physical Therapy & Sports Medicine at The Ridge. For more information on injury prevention screenings or to make an appointment call 586-1738.
