Free Functional Movements, Wellness Screenings Scheduled This Week

WAYNE – A northeast Nebraska Community Activity Center (CAC) has partnered with KEL Physical Therapy & Wellness to celebrate the new year providing a Functional Movement Screen.

According to a release from the Community Activity Center, upcoming events will be for members and their friends and family.

Free screenings at the Community Activity Center, located at 901 West 7th Street, will be held on Wednesday, January 8 from 7 – 9 p.m. and again on Saturday, January 11 from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. Additional days and times may be added if needed.

A physical therapy checkup that includes a movement screen will ensure that you’re physically able to engage in your favorite activities. Whether it be playing basketball, pickleball, skiing, jogging or simply getting up and down from the floor to play with your children or grandchildren, this screening will assist with all.

Physical therapists with KEL will perform movement screens for a variety of reasons including to identify areas of strength and weakness, to uncover issues or rule them out, to determine readiness to begin a safe exercise program and to improve sport performance (for both novice and elite athletes).

The physical therapy clinic is located at 214 North Pearl Street (Suite A) in Wayne.

A movement screening is something that you can have done whether you have a nagging injury or are simply to ready to kickstart your activity level after a long hiatus. Gaining an understanding of how your body performs during basic exercises and movements helps ensure that you can safely jump on a bike or participate on the court this winter.

A free workshop will also be held at noon on Thursday, January 9. Karen Longe, doctor of PT at KEL will be the presenter and talk about shoulder pain. Attendees will learn how to resolve shoulder pain naturally without medication, injection or surgery.
