On August 12 and 19, Orthopedic Physical Therapy staff members were out at Rolesville Middle School helping students prepare for the 2014-2015 athletic season by providing the medical physical required to participate in sports programs. Our co-owners, Olivier Chassin and Grant Nelson provided orthopedic assessments and administered blood pressure screenings. Staff members also checked student weight, height, and provided an eye exam.
Ortho PT team members were joined by the following health practitioners:
- Jason Troiano, MD of Duke Primary Care Wake Forest
- Joseph Micchia, DO of Primary Care Partners at Ligon Mill
- Sharon Johnson, PA-C of UNC Family Medicine of Rolesville
More than 80 students participated in the physicals. Many parents remarked how they appreciated being offered the opportunity to get screenings done after work hours and at an affordable cost of only $5 per student. All proceeds will benefit Rolesville Middle athletic programs. Due to the response at Rolesville, be on the look out for more Ortho PT organized physicals in the future! If your school is interested, please contact our office at 919-556-4678 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule your program.
