October has been a busy month for our team! In addition to fall sports and the Halloween festivities in our local communities, our doctors have been working to educate the public about a variety of orthopaedic conditions and procedures for healing. Read on to learn more!
Dr. King at Elite Therapy’s Grand Re-Opening
To celebrate the grand re-opening of Elite Therapy and Fitness in Mechanicsburg our own Dr. King was onsite to perform free athlete ACL screenings. The day consisted of seminars, giveaways, as well as plenty of food! If you’re looking for advance training either as a casual or competitive athlete we recommend checking them out.
Light the Night Walk
The OSS team participated in the Light the Night Walk held Friday, October 14, at John Wright Restaurant. The proceeds for this walk benefitted the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Thank you to everyone who participated we enjoyed getting to raise money for such an important cause.
Halloween in Mechanicsburg
We were excited to be a part of the Mechanicsburg community during the Mechanicsburg Halloween Parade. Our team got in the spirit of Halloween by handing out candy to all of the kids who attended. Thank you to everyone who enjoyed this seasonal evening!
In addition to attending the Mechanicsburg Halloween Parade, our team was also present at the annual Streets of Treats event. Streets of Treats featured trick-or-treating at local businesses to get in the Halloween spirit and also had crafts and games. Hosted by the Mechanicsburg Chamber of Commerce this event gives kids a fun area to safely enjoy Halloween fun.
Dr. Etienne’s Trip to Haiti
Dr. Etienne and his team of volunteers from the MIVO foundation traveled to Haiti this month as part of one of their seasonal trips to the country. This time however, the team was able to help with relief efforts from Hurricane Matthew in addition to their regular services. The goal of this trip is to help see patients and perform surgeries on individuals needing assistance. If you’re interested in supporting the great work they do, we highly recommend contacting their office.
Dr. Curran and Dr. King Featured on Good Day PA
October provided an opportunity for two of our doctors to be featured on Good Day PA and speak to the local community. Dr. Curran discussed the diagnosis and treatment of meniscus tears, and Dr. King was featured in a separate segment where he talked about rotator cuff tears.
Thank you to everyone who attended one of our community events or tuned in to hear our physicians speak about orthopaedic health during the month of October. Keep an eye out for our community happenings in the upcoming months!
