Free Gait Analysis Being Offered by Health System During October

BRUNSWICK, Georgia: Sept. 30, 2011–October is National Physical Therapy Month and Southeast Georgia Health System is marking the occasion by offering free gait analysis throughout the month. If you have trouble walking, a gait analysis using the Multisport Video Analysis Program (MVP) can help identify what is causing you discomfort and pain. The screenings only take about 15 minutes and a clinician will determine whether physical therapy could help. If so, you will get a summary sheet and a CD of your analysis to discuss with your doctor.

Although the screenings are free, they are only available by appointment and space is limited—no walk-ins will be accepted. The screenings are available at two convenient locations: the Outpatient Rehabilitation Care Center, 2600 Wildwood Drive, Brunswick, and the Outpatient Rehabilitation Care Center, 2000 Dan Proctor Drive, St. Marys. To make your appointment, call 912-466-5330 in Brunswick and 912-576-6450 in St. Marys.
