Spring Cleaning: From Within!

Spring is here! Well, sort of. With recent chilly temps, it has us questioning…is spring even a thing? Fast forward a few days and we have been promised warmer weather and sunny days are ahead.

Spring time is a wonderful time of year, the flowers are blooming, the skies are clear, the birds are chirping and the Village is filled with people shopping, dining, having fun and bettering themselves or others. Spring cleaning doesn’t always  mean sprucing up your home or getting organized. Take a moment and realize that sometimes the most important cleaning…is from within.

April is Health and Wellness month in the Village! We encourage you to check out a few of our favorite merchants below who can help you better your health, mind, body and soul. 

Athletico Physical Therapy

If you are having aches or pains request an appointment at Athletico Prairie Village to begin your treatment with Direct Access Physical Therapy. By taking advantage of direct access you are able to begin treatment right away, without obtaining a prescription, so you can get back to doing the things you love.
Over the course of treatment, goals are outlined to ensure your needs are fulfilled during each physical therapy session and to keep you on track to reach your desired outcome. Please note that each patient experience and goals are different.  With direct access physical therapy, some initial evaluations lead to outside referrals to another healthcare professional, ensuring the patient’s healthcare needs are met.
Call 913-871-6291 to learn more or schedule your comprehensive initial evaluation.
