Northern Rehab Physical Therapy Specialists is excited to be a partner with Live Healthy DeKalb County’s inaugural Get Active Week. During the week of May 17-26, 2019, health and wellness organizations throughout DeKalb County will offer activities in a collective effort to raise awareness about the resources available to residents in our community. Being active is critical to your health and happiness as well as the overall well-being of our community. We hope this week of awareness will encourage residents to begin a new personal health initiative. As a partner in Get Active Week, Northern Rehab is offering a Runners Enhancement & Injury Prevention Free Event on Wednesday, May 22 at their Genoa Clinic, 540 E. Main Street, Genoa, at 6:30pm.

This presentation led by Melissa Payne Wagner, PT, MSPT, will include interactive dynamic warm ups where attendees will actively participate, running strategies for the beginner to expert runners, learn/review proper self foam rolling techniques (foam rollers will be provided), and a short presentation on injury prevention, common injuries, and how to avoid and heal from them. There will be a short Q&A at the end of the event and light refreshments will be served. Attendees are encouraged to wear running shoes/running gear and enjoy an interactive event to improve your running strategies.
