Free Balance Program in Honor of National PT Month

September 25, 2012

Helen Hayes Hospital in West Haverstraw is offering a two-part program on Improving Your Balance on October 11, and 18, 2012. The program, which is free of charge and open to the public, is being held in celebration of  National Physical Therapy month.

The first class, which takes place from 12:00 noon to 1:00 p.m. on October 12, will provide each participant with a balance assessment test and evaluation. The following class, which also is scheduled from  12:00 noon to 1:00 p.m., will focus on exercise instruction for good balance and how to perform a home exercise program.

Improved balance is key to preventing falls and subsequent disabling injuries. Maintaining balance is as important as maintaining flexibility, core strength and mobility and is vital to maintaining optimal health and wellness.

Pre-registration for the two-part Improving Your Balance program is required. For additional information or to register, call 845-786-4379.
