We are excited to announce that ProActive Physical Therapy is the only Postural Restoration Center™ in Colorado! All of our staff members have taken continuing education seminars through the Postural Restoration Institute®. Two of our staff members, Craig Depperschmidt, PT, DPT, PRC and Brian Benjamin, PT, DPT, PRC are certified through PRI. This renowned institute takes a unique approach to physical therapy by looking at an appreciating the importance of polyarticular chains of muscles and their relationship with postural asymmetries. We are working with other health care professionals to be able to integrate Postural Restoration® concepts into daily activities, workouts, sports performance, and injury prevention.
Our very own physical therapist Ruth Waller-Liddle became the first female finisher during the Valley 5000 5K race at Mehaffey Park. She finished eighth overall with a time of 19:25, and she was the only female to break the 20-minute mark!
Ruth has been working hard to overcome some past injuries. Her tremendous efforts paid off as she won another local race!
