Helen Hayes Hospital is offering a three-part program on Improving Your Balance on October 10, 17 and 24, 2011. All classes run from 12:00 to 1:00 pm in the Auditorium. 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 will provide each participant with a balance assessment test and evaluation. The following two classes 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 three-part Improving Your Balance program is required. For additional information or to register, call 845-786-4617.
