Evansville, IN (PRWEB) August 31, 2017
ProRehab is proud to announce that one of their own, Aaron Goelzhauser, PT, DPT, OCS, has organized a walk for area individuals who have undergone joint replacement and their family and friends. Registration for the Total Joint Trek, which will be held at Wesselman Park in Evansville, begins at 7:15 AM. The walk will begin at 8 AM and offers three options for interested participants: a half-mile walk, one-mile walk, or two-mile walk.
“We are so proud of Aaron for his thought and initiative in planning an event to show support and solidarity for joint replacement patients,” said Pat Wempe, ProRehab Co-Founder and CEO. “ProRehab is thrilled to be sponsoring the event alongside Tri-State Orthopaedics and we look forward to a wonderful morning on September 16.”
Individuals with knee, hip, shoulder, or ankle replacement are invited to register for the event, as are candidates for joint replacement and their friends, family, and members of the community. Registration information, event sponsorship information, and the course layout can all be found at http://www.TotalJointTrek.com. The walk is free to participants that have had joint replacements and $10 for all other participants.
“This walk was designed to encourage those with joint replacements to connect with and support each other while promoting well-being and encouraging healthy lifestyles,” said Dr. Goelzhauser. “I am so grateful for the support of ProRehab and Tri-State Orthopaedics, and I look forward to welcoming both familiar and new faces to the first of many annual Total Joint Treks on September 16.”
One of the most important goals of the event is to improve strength and stamina in total joint replacement patients and candidates. Thus, Dr. Goelzhauser encourages proper aerobic conditioning before participating in the event.
