Physical Therapy Practice Donates Time, Funds For Continued Support of Local School System

We’ve developed a wonderful partnership over the years and look forward to working together again to keep EVSC students healthy and active in the coming school year.

ProRehab is proud to announce the extension of their partnership with the Evansville Vanderburgh School Corporation (EVSC) Foundation, donating both funds and time to support the organization. The funds pledged allow EVSC Principals and Athletic Directors to support extracurricular teams, like Speech & Debate, purchase uniforms and equipment, and more.

“We are grateful and appreciative of ProRehab’s continued support of the EVSC Foundation,” said Gayle Long Kiesel, Executive Director of Development at EVSC. “In addition to our school’s athletic and extracurricular programs benefiting from the donation of funds and sports physical therapy services, the funds will also help purchase equipment for common areas in our schools and fund workshops for teachers to improve classroom learning in the 2015-2016 school year.”

Through the sports medicine partnership, ProRehab screens student athletes’ movement patterns to eliminate asymmetries, keep athletes in top condition, reduce their risk of injury and identify performance-enhancing strategies. ProRehab’s experts who are Certified Athletic Trainers (ATCs) also attend student athletic events to provide on-site support. If an athlete is injured on the field during practice or a game, ProRehab staff can provide first aid or make return to play decisions, among other things.

“We’re thrilled to be continuing our relationship with the EVSC Foundation,” said Pat Wempe, PT, DPT, SCS, owner of ProRehab. “We’ve developed a wonderful partnership over the years and look forward to working together again to keep EVSC students healthy and active in the coming school year.”

ProRehab Certified Athletic Trainers and Physical Therapists are the best first choice for injury prevention, performance enhancement and treatment of musculoskeletal conditions for student athletes and their families in the tri-state area. For more information about ProRehab please visit
