LWWC Partners With Integrated Physical Medicine
The Coaches and Board Members of the Lincoln Way Wrestling Club are pleased and proud to re-announce the continued mutually beneficial relationship with the physicians and staff of Integrated Physical Medicine (IPM) located in New Lenox, Illinois.
Chiropractic physician, Dr. Scott J. Kenny, doctor of physical therapy, Dr. Holly Ditzler, and athletic trainer Kristin Richardson, ATC, will be volunteering time as the Lincoln Way Wrestling Club sports team physicians and athletic trainers. Their role is to fill the gap that exists with regards to proper diagnosis and sport specific rehabilitation of the injuries that often occur to our athletes during our long wrestling season.
Dr. Kenny is fully trained as Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician, Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist, Fellow, International Academy of Medical Acupuncturists, and has also begun the education process and eventual testing to sit for the Diplomate exam for the American Academy of Chiropractic Sports Physicians and the Academy of Chiropractic Orthopedists. Dr. Kenny is also Board certified in Physiotherapy and all staff members at IPM are skilled in athletic training/taping and all aspects of rehabilitation, including concussion diagnosis, assessment, and proper return to sport protocols.
Integrated Physical Medicine also volunteers time as sports team physicians at many other local teams to include, but not limited to the Lincoln Way Patriots semi-professional football team, the New Lenox Youth Football Association Jr. Warriors, Cheer Envy Allstars/Ultimate Athletics competitive cheerleading team, and the Providence Catholic High School wrestling team.
Integrated Physical Medicine is a multidisciplinary healthcare facility focusing on a combined approach of chiropractic care, physical therapy, massage therapy, and athletic training. There is no other healthcare group similar to IPM in our area. There is also a new IPM location in Joliet.
If an injury occurs to one of our Lincoln Way Wrestling Club athletes (or their family members) IPM will be available for complimentary evaluations (regardless of insurance plan) on a 24/7 basis. Complimentary evaluations will include thorough history of the athlete’s injury, complete physical examination (range of motion testing, muscle testing, neurologic testing), and x-rays (if they need to be taken). There is a digital x-ray machine at IPM which allows for immediate viewing of images to more efficiently visualize and diagnose fractures or other pathology.
The physicians at IPM can be reached at 815-717-8355 for any specific healthcare questions. More information can also be found on the web at www.ipmhealthcare.com.
