North Aurora firm to hold community health fair Oct. 12
North Aurora-based Physical Therapy Advantage will host a community health fair from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 12, at Cornerstone Community Baptist Church, 307 Banbury Road in North Aurora.
The public is invited. Admission and parking are free. Health science students from Aurora University and Waubonsee Community College will assist.
Joe King, owner of PT Advantage at 35 S. Randall Road, Clock Tower Plaza, said the fair celebrates national Physical Therapy Month in October.
At the fair, visitors can have their blood pressure, heart rate, breathing rate and posture/balance checked. Additionally, body mass index calculation and walking analysis will be offered.
King said, "I have been wanting to do something like this for a number of years. I felt driven to give back to the communities that have supported us for the past 12-plus years. We truly enjoy serving the Fox River valley and are collaborating with AU and WCC's Health Science departments to allow our next generation of health care providers to begin the process of paying it forward and serving the community."
PT Advantage staff treat a wide range of injuries and conditions, from sports injuries, spinal rehabilitation, worker compensation cases, vestibular conditions, and temporal mandibular joint disorders to orthopedic injuries. Staff members build custom foot orthotics and offer augmented soft tissue mobilization to treat scar tissue and connective tissue fibrosis.
PT Advantage health professionals also offer video analysis of sports specific injuries, running/gait analysis and an alter G antigravity treadmill for decreased weight bearing exercise and training.
