They can talk through the injury with the patient and assist with clinical decision making, Zanke said.
Select Physical Therapy is offering small tags that local residents can put on their key rings to have quick access to the number. Zanke said the hotline isnt only for athletes participating in organized sports, but also anyone who may be playing with friends at the gym or even working at home over the weekend.
This is a great tool after hours to help people receive proper care quickly, he said.
The company partners with local physicians to help patients who need to see a doctor get an appointment quickly. Zanke noted patients could also receive physical therapy at their two locations in Lebanon and Mt. Juliet.
The company is working to distribute the key tags to local sports leagues and organizations and is encouraging coaches and parents to call or visit one of their locations to pick up the key tag.
Zanke said Select Physical Therapy is on the Wilson County Sports Council and is working on a partnership with the Lebanon Girls Softball Association and Junior Pro Football to get key tags to parents and coaches.
We are actively involved in the civic leagues in the Wilson County area, we are very happy to be here in Wilson County, he said.
