Bowl for Brains
9 Years Celebration
Thank you to all our patients, doctors and community members who have supported us throughout the last 9 years. We celebrated the last 9 wonderful years in the Clear Lake community.
Bell Ring for Salvation Army
On December 19th the staff from both the Clear Lake and Turtle Lake Physical Therapy & Rehab Specialists spent the day ringing the bell for the Salvation Army outside of Nilssen’s Foods in Clear Lake. We had fun engaging with the community and enduring the cold for a good cause. We plan to make this an annual thing.
The Clear Lake Fastbreak 5k was held on Saturday, June 24th. There were 79 participants. Winners for the event were Johanna Meister with a time of 19.46.7 and Earl Blodgett with a time of 20.53.3. Over $2300 was donated to the Clear Lake school athletic programs with the help of Clear Lake Physical Therapy and 27 other local businesses. We look forward to next year’s event!
Clear Lake Physical Therapy & Rehab Specialists presented on postural awareness at the Ridgeview Apartments in Clear Lake. Britt Ruden, Student of Physical Therapy, and Emily Monson, Clinic Owner and Physical Therapist, discussed the effects of poor posture and how we can benefit from doing stretches and exercises. Keeping a proper posture keeps a person’s center of mass over their base of support which is important for maintaining balance while walking and performing daily activities. There are a variety of abnormal postural changes that causes you to be off centered. Postural changes can occur because of many reasons; poor posture throughout the day, medical conditions and sedentary lifestyles are only a few occurrences. With the assistance of physical therapy, you can prevent and correct poor posture. We really enjoyed presenting to the group and are excited for the next presentation. If you are interested in attending future presentations or would like some assistance in correcting poor posture, please contact us at (715) 263-4103 for more information.
