Halloween at Axis Edmonds

Halloween is always a spirited time at Axis. We enjoy dressing up as well as encouraging our patients to do so. It’s a reminder that a great part of serving our clients is having a fun and positive environment in the clinic! Here are a few photos of our staff and patients (with their permission) from Halloween this year.

October is National Physical Therapy Month

For most people, October marks the beginning of Autumn, Halloween, and for all of us in western Washington the beginning of the rainy season (or seasons!). For Physical Therapists, it marks National Physical Therapy Month. It’s an opportunity to reach out to our community and educate them about the unique benefits of treatment by a physical therapist. This year the American Physical Therapy Association’s theme is it’s “Fit Over 50″ campaign. The APTA has named the 10 fittest baby boomer cities and Seattle is ranked #8!

A New Chapter for Axis Physical Therapy

First of all, we would like to thank everyone for visiting our new website. We are looking forward to utilizing this blog and featured articles section in a few different ways. Our primary goal is to post articles and videos related to physical therapy, educating our community on wellness as well as injury prevention and treatment. We are also going to use this section to tell you more about ourselves by showing you things we like to do not only in the clinic, but out in our community.

Our second clinic in the Martha Lake / Mill Creek area will be opening in mid to late August! Our therapists Shane Rushing and Deena Winham are very excited to treat new and current patients in this new facility. You can find more information on them in the “Staff” section of this website. We will be keeping everyone updated with pictures of the new facility soon, so please check back here for updates in the future!
