Voluntary Action Center Check Presentation

Northern Rehab Physical Therapy Specialists and Creative Therapeutics recently presented a donation check to the Voluntary Action Center of DeKalb County. The funds were raised at the recent "Walk & Roll for Mobility" fundraising event held this past October. Both independent physical therapy clinics teamed together to celebrate National Physical Therapy month and organized "Walk & Roll for Mobility", a walk along the DeKalb Nature Trail to enjoy and support our community to be active. "We chose the Voluntary Action Center as the recipient of this fundraiser because their various programs support the needs in our community" comments Lynn Batalden of Creative Therapeutics. The inaugural event was a success with over 30 participants walking, rolling, strolling and riding along the trail on a cool fall day. Ken Olson of Northern Rehab adds, "We are thrilled to present the Voluntary Action Center with a check for $1,000.00 and to support their programs such as Meals on Wheels, Community Dinners, TransVAC and MedVAC."

Both Creative Therapeutics and Northern Rehab extend their gratitude to the community members that participated in this event and supported the Voluntary Action Center. 

Should I ask my doctor to refer me if I think I may need therapy?

Definitely. When you have a problem you think may be helped by physical therapy ask your doctor or give us a call and we will help you to determine if this is a problem that may be helped by physical therapy.

Your Right to Choose

The decision of where you go to receive treatment is
yours. If you have a specific therapist or practice you
would like to go to, you should let your doctor or
insurance company know this. Not all physical
therapists or practices are the same and the choice
of your provider is yours.
