FYZICAL staff gets training

Clinical staff members from FYZICAL Therapy and Balance Centers of Sequim and Port Townsend recently attended courses, in both Sequim and Bellingham. The physical therapists and physical therapist assistants were instructed by Dr. Gavin Hamer, national director of education for FYZICAL and a fellow of the American Academy of Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapy.

The Sequim class was on the evaluation and treatment of the lower back and pelvis. In Bellingham, the emphasis was on the neck, shoulder and arm. Both courses lead to staff member certifications as a Certified Orthopedic FYZICAL Therapist or Therapist Assistant.

The FYZICAL method emphasizes the use of fundamental orthopedic therapy principles within a classification framework, which allows therapists to establish the best course of treatment for a speedy recovery, staffers say.

FYZICAL Therapy and Balance Centers of Sequim and Port Townsend are owned and managed by Jason Wilwert. Reach him in Sequim at 360-683-0632, and in Port Townsend at 360-385-1035.

Carlsborg Station sets customer appreciation event

Carlsborg Station, at 20 Carlsborg Road, is celebrating 20 years of business through April 26. Staff at the Shell gas station/convenience store will be serving free cake and coffee all week, and having daily gift card drawings and souvenir give-aways.

From 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Thursday, April 25, the business will host a customer appreciation barbecue, with hamburgers and hot dogs.

Julie and Jim Schumacher opened the business in April 1999 on the former site of Jean’s Deli at the US Highway 101/Carlsborg Road/Hooker Road intersection.

“We are a ma and pa store, and rely on our local customers,” Julie Schumacher said. “Our store is what it is today because of our continued support of our local residents in our community. We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your continued support.”
