[KHTS]-Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital will unveil its newly expanded Physical Therapy and Sports Rehabilitation Center on Thursday Sept. 24. at The Plaza at Golden Valley.
Attendees for the ribbon cutting ceremony of Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital’s new Physical Therapy and Sports Rehabilitation Center will be able to tour the clinic, meet the physical therapists and enjoy free food and drinks, according to a news release.
Those in attendance will also receive a free injury screening, concussion information and a demonstration on the AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill, according to a news release.
The AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill will allow patients rehabilitating from injury or surgery to either walk or run on the treadmill which allows for a quicker recovery time with less pain, according to the AlterG website.
“Henry Mayo is really big on reaching out to the community in what we can offer,” said Physical Therapist Mike Saguibo.
“Patients using the AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill will feel like they are walking or running on the moon,” Saguibo said.
Cameras monitoring the patient will provide instant feedback and real time tracking of patient progression, said Saguibo.
The 1,100 square foot addition to the already existing facility will place the total square footage at approximately 2,200 square feet, Saguibo said.
The expansion will also include a Pilates section with certified pilates instructor, said Saguibo.
Athletes will also be able to take advantage of the new on-staff athletic trainer which will help athletes suffering from injuries to return to competing sooner, Saguibo said.
The ribbon cutting ceremony will also include a competition between student athletes and their coaches from various Santa Clarita high schools, according to a news release.
The student athletes will team up with their respective coaches and make their way through a large inflated Bounce house with obstacles, said Saguibo.
The winners of the competition will take with them $500 dollars in cash for their high school’s sports medicine program, while second place will take $300 and 3rd place takes $200, according to a news release.
The ribbon cutting ceremony for the Physical Therapy and Sports Rehabilitation Center will be from 5:30-7:30 p.m.
