When was the last time that back pain and beer partied together?

Leave it to Therapeutic Associates Physical Therapy to combine the two as it celebrates National Physical Therapy Month with an Oktoberfest-themed open house from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 27, at its Southeast Boise branch, 960 Broadway Ave., Suite 200.

Plan on the usual Oktoberfest action — beer, wine, food and music — combined with not-so-typical seminars on the clinic’s treatments and wellness programs.

Sip on some frosty suds like Hofbrau, Allgauer and Wiltenberger, while listening to brief discussions on yoga/pilates/personal training, women’s and men’s health, pain science, low back pain, run analysis and other topics.

Stop in for free, but donations are suggested to help raise a target of $2,000 for the Wyakin Warrior Foundation, a local support and mentoring group for severely injured veterans.
