Quality and Gallatin Centers for Rehabilitation & Healing are presenting a free program to support amputees in the community and improve their performance! Introducing THE AMPUTEE WALKING SCHOOL.
These clinics are led by co-founders Todd Schaffhauser & Dennis Oehler, amputees and former Para-Olympians who won gold medals for sprinting in international track and field events.
This unique program will evaluate each participant’s prostheses, gait, balance, spatial orientation, and strength. We will offer support, education, exercise instruction, and inspiration. Todd and Dennis will coach amputees on how to more comfortably and successfully walk and participate in physical fitness activities.
Appropriate attendees can be anyone interested in the subject. Therapists can even earn Continuing Education Units. All are welcome to this free event, however space is limited. Please RSVP to Brent Jarreau at bjarreauTN@careritecenters
