AmeriCare PT staff had the privilege of volunteering and performing a stretching program session for the youth group Girls On The Run (GOTR). It is a non- profit organization that works to empower young girls through fitness.
Rick Sierzega ATC (athletic trainer) and Zulay Espitaleta DPT (physical therapist) introduced a dynamic stretching and warm up program which all the girls participated in. They learned how to properly maintain their posture while stretching and preparing for their running program.
All of the girls were very motivated and had fun changing up their routine with us.
AmeriCare Physical Therapy enjoyed meeting new faces of the Westfield community and look forward to working with GOTR and Denise Holan in the future.
At the end of the visit the girls showed their appreciation by performing a few cheers thanking AmeriCare Physical Therapy for what they learned.
