Zionsville: Live Without Neck Pain & Headaches

ZPT GaZette The Newsletter About Your Health And Caring For Your Body

June 2017

Dear ZPT friends, Summertimegreetings!Thedroneof the lawnmowerandchirpingbirdsaccompany me as I type, out on the screened porch at home. I do love warmer weather, especially before it gets to be sticky, humid and HOT. My staff members now say that I’m “semi-retired,” but I’m far too young for that (wink), and I really do work hard, just not always at the clinic. Last month my mother and I treated ourselves to a shared Mother’s Day experience by travelling to Portland, Oregon, to see my younger son, Aaron, his girlfriend and

her family. Portland was beautiful, and was the fourth visit for us, but this time was different, as Aaron showed us around town, his work sites and his favorite restaurants, the Japanese garden, and his favorite gal. Mom and I are so blessed, and we remember fondly the little guy of ages past, and how pleased we are to see him now a happy and responsible young man.

If you have not been in to see us at ZPT recently, you simply must. We are congratulating our evening receptionists, Lauren and Jessica, who are ZCHS graduates now, heading off to college this fall. We welcome back Amber and Ian, from out-of-state colleges, home for the summer. They will both be assisting at the front desk reception, in the gym and with reaching out to our community. We also welcome Evan-the-Intern to his new position on our staff, as our IT guy and PT tech. After his recent graduation from IUPUI, his availability was our gain. Recently we had a very special visitor to the clinic, a service dog-in- training with her volunteer trainer. “Mischka” the dog, is part of the ICAN program (IndianaCanineAssistantNetwork)whichprovidesservicedogs to children and adolescents with disabilities. The dogs are trained by inmates in our prisons, giving the inmates opportunities to learn new skills, have purpose beyond themselves, and find the unconditional love of a dog. Our visiting volunteer had been trained by an inmate in handling Mischka, and was instructed to expose her to a variety of community experiences….which brought her to ZPT! We had to review our service dog etiquette, and if you are curious, I might direct you to learn more at www.ICANdog.org . Perhaps we can all support this worthy organization in the upcoming “dog-days” of summer. Gratefully, Elaine P.S. …Let us run with perseverance the RACE marked out for us. Hebrews 12:1 b
