Get ready to get moving, Trenton!

Preventative screenings are a critical component of living a happy and healthy life. They provide vital insights into our physical health and can be a crucial early indicator in case health problems do arise. However, for financial reasons or otherwise, these services may not be readily accessible to many portions of our population. Thankfully, the American Physical Therapy Association of New Jersey (APTANJ) has partnered with Mercer County Community College to provide free health screenings to members of the Trenton community.

On Saturday, February 11th, Trenton residents of all ages are invited to the James Kerney Campus of Mercer County Community College for various complementary health testing. The event will occur from 9 am to 12 pm at 101 North Broad Street, 2nd floor, Trenton, NJ 08608. Some screenings offered include blood pressure, balance, strength, speed, and more. Each attendee will receive an individualized report of the results and recommendations from current New Jersey licensed physical therapists.

Once the screenings have been completed, and your results have been explained, you can walk away with a clearer picture of your overall health. At APTANJ’s previous screening event in October, the organization served over 50 Trentonians ranging from high school students to senior citizens. APTANJ is returning to our community to provide the City of Trenton with these invaluable services.

Testing blood pressure, mobility, and other vital bodily functions can alert medical professionals to internal issues. Preventative medicine is a powerful tool to stop health concerns in their tracks and ensure you are given every advantage possible if any problem arises. Staying on top of your health and participating in routine screenings is an easy way to remain proactive regarding your overall well-being. Now, there is a simple and free way to learn more about your health here in Trenton.

These services are generously provided by the American Physical Therapist Association of New Jersey, a collective of medical professionals devoted to advancing the physical therapy profession. APTANJ’s members are fierce health advocates who work daily in our communities to improve lives. Physical therapy can transform lives and empower patients to take their healing into their own hands. APTA advocates nationwide are raising awareness, advancing evidence-based practices, and developing the next generation of PT professionals. Now, APTANJ members are ready to continue their work in Trenton, and you’re invited to participate!
