A Kinetic Edge Physical Therapy Press Release

Oskaloosa, Iowa – Kinetic Edge celebrated their 20th year in business and another year of growth over the course of 2018. They ended 2018 on a high note by letting each of their team members donate $1,000 to a local non-profit of their choice for a total of $46,000 in donations. Plus, they’re gearing up to help their communities have their healthiest year yet by kicking off 2019 with a free screen day at each of their six clinic locations on January 24.

“Giving back and investing in our local communities is integral to who we are as a company,” shared CEO and Physical Therapist Troy Vander Molen. “As an owner in this company, I was so excited to deliver the news to our team members that they could choose where to donate $1,000.”

This atypical holiday bonus started in 2017 when the owners of Kinetic Edge decided to let each of their 37 team members donate $1,000 to a local non-profit as part of their holiday bonus. Over the course of 2018, their team grew to 46 people with the acquisition of a clinic in Centerville, Iowa and additional staff added to some of their other locations.

“We were thrilled to once again gift our team members and local communities with this unique opportunity to live out our mission to transform lives and restore hope in a different way than we do on a daily basis,” said Practice Manager and Assistant Financial Officer Renae Oppenhuizen.

Thirteen team members work out Kinetic Edge’s Oskaloosa office and got to select local non-profits to bless with a $1,000 donation. Individually, they selected Mahaska County Humane Society, South Central Iowa Youth for Christ, Oskaloosa Peer Helpers, Sonshine Preschool, Iowa 4H Foundation, Oskaloosa Lions Club, Stephen Memorial Animal Shelter, Oskaloosa Community Schools, Union Street Players, Oskaloosa Middle School, Central Reformed Church, Freedom House, and Bethany Christian Services.

While that’s a lot of giving for a small business, Kinetic Edge isn’t done. They’ve committed to giving away their time for free on January 24 to provide Oskaloosa and the surrounding communities with free 20-minute screens with a movement expert on their team.

“More and more people are living with pain or turning to opioid use to deal with pain,” shared Clinic Manager and Physical Therapist Carol Kelderman. “We hope many will take advantage of this opportunity to come see one of our medical professionals for free so that we can remove some of the concerns that come along with seeking out a medical expert’s advice. Ultimately, we just want to help people find a healthy and safe solution to the pain they’re living with.”

This free screen event is perfect for people who are having pain or problems with day to day activities such as walking, standing, sitting for long periods, going up or down steps, getting in and out of a car, sleeping, or driving. Kinetic Edge hopes many will take advantage of this opportunity to see one of their experts to find out the cause of their problem. A free screen on January 24 can be scheduled by calling 641-676-3535. These screens are free, but Kinetic Edge only has 33 available.

Kinetic Edge is excited for what’s in store for 2019 and hopes to help even more people so that they can continue to transform more lives and restore more hope throughout their communities.
