Seven Lakes Kiwanis
On June 17, the Seven Lakes Kiwanis Club hosted Ray Metzger, PT from Appalachian Physical Therapy, Inc. as its speaker.
As a physical therapist, Metzger works with all people who are striving to rehab injured members of one's body, but also to help reduce the chance of injury that could lead to serious problems and, perhaps, extensive physical therapy at a later time. Metzger's particular "specialty" is working with golfers of all ages who are trying to play this rather difficult game but find that their muscles and joints just don't want to respond to the physical rigors of the golf swing appropriately
Metzger had the crowd out of its seats on several occasions in an effort to demonstrate several aspects of what the golf swing requires of one's body. Most of those attending are golfers, so he created a great deal of interest in some of the things that were mentioned.
The Seven Lakes Kiwanis Club meets every Tuesday at the Seven Lakes CC at noon. Everyone is always welcome.
