Complimentary Injury Screenings Available at All AthletiCo Physical and Occupational Therapy Centers
Date:5/12/2010

Orthopedic injury screenings offer Illinois and Milwaukee communities opportunity for injury education and options.

Oak Brook, IL (Vocus) May 12, 2010 -- AthletiCo, a Midwest provider of physical therapy, occupational therapy, and fitness services, offers complimentary injury screenings at all 55 AthletiCo physical therapy centers located throughout Illinois and Milwaukee. The screenings offer a wellness-based approach to providing individuals the opportunity to have their injury assessed by a licensed medical professional at no charge.

During each injury screening, which last approximate 30 minutes, a licensed physical or occupational therapist or athletic trainer will examine strength, range of motion, and flexibility in order to help guide medical options. Following the screening, handouts for stretches or exercises may be given to manage symptoms, or it may be recommended that an individual follow up with a physician or other health professional for further examination. An individual will also receive education on how to care for his or her injury.

AthletiCo’s president and founder, Mark Kaufman, believes that education is an important step in understanding if further injury can be prevented with proper stretching and exercise or if it’s necessary to consult a physician.

“As we are always looking for ways we can support our communities, we feel these screenings offer a great opportunity to open our doors so that our neighbors have access to the health system,” says Kaufman. “They can be educated and receive early intervention so that what may be a minor injury or affliction does not become worse due to lack of access. Our injury screenings are a great way for individuals to become educated on injuries they aren’t sure what to do about.”

AthletiCo has strong physician relationships throughout Illinois and Milwaukee and is able to refer patients to appropriate doctors in a timely manner and provide follow-up with both physicians and patients in regards to injury progress.

AthletiCo’s complimentary injury screenings offer:

 
  • Examination by a licensed medical professional
  • Convenient FREE care and easy scheduling
  • Personal attention to an individual’s health
  • Education of potential injury
  • Injury care plan or physician referral, if needed
  • Peace of mind

Injury screenings are available by appointment only and will be scheduled within 24-48 hours of initial call. For more information or to schedule a free screening at a convenient AthletiCo location near you, visit our website at www.athletico.com or call our injury hotline at 1-877-ATHLETICO.
