The grand opening of the Mercy Regional Medical Center Sports Medicine facility will be held from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday at its location in the Centennial Center next to Office Depot, 327 S. Camino del Rio.
The new 7,000-square-foot facility includes three Integrated Physical Therapy clinics and is the primary location of other sports-related services, such as athletic-training, sports nutrition, wellness and fitness classes; concussion services; injury prevention; sports-performance coaching and massage therapy.
The event will include food, tours, prize drawings and demonstrations of the Alter G “anti-gravity” treadmill and gait-analysis system, which uses NASA-developed technology to change the weight a user bears during exercise.
Free classes will be offered during the event, including flow yoga from 10 to 10:45 a.m. and core/balance from noon to 12:30 p.m.
