Screen shot 2016-02-18 at 3.48.09 PMReport from President Terry Brewer on the Southern Rensselaer County Rotary Club breakfast meeting of February 18, 2016:

We had a nice breakfast meeting this morning at the Greenbush YMCA. Shannon Romanowski was a gracious host and provided continental breakfast for our group.

We had seven Rotarians attending: Terry Brewer, Jim Leyhane, Andy Leyhane, Marco Koshykar, Murray Forth, Shannon Romanowski, and Matt Smith.

Matt provided an excellent program on the role of the physical therapist (PT) or physical therapist assistant (PTA) in pre- and post-rehabilitation services for a patient. He reviewed statistics on current types of therapy treatments a PT or PTA may provide following a surgical procedure. Matt reviewed therapies for shoulder, hip, back and knee problems.

He used a PowerPoint presentation to identify different treatment plans for the muscle groups the PT or PTA would work on to get a patient back to an active daily routine.

NEXT BREAKFAST MEETING: 7 a.m. Thursday, March 17. Marco Koshykar will be the speaker.
