Spinal care – unless you are in pain, does it ever cross your mind? Probably not, but it should. Back pain affects 80-90 percent of people at some point in their lives. Common culprits of back pain include: obesity, improper lifting techniques, poor posture and smoking. Not only is back pain a nuisance, it also causes a decrease in one’s quality of life. Hence, why it’s important to be cognoscente of spinal health before it becomes a problem.
In partnership with the Human Motion Institute at Randolph Hospital, Frank Layman, PT, DPT, EdD, MTC, Clinical Manager of Physical Therapy with Randolph Orthopedics & Sports Medicine, will host a program called, The Importance of Spinal Health in all Stages of Life and Fitness Levels. The program will take place on Thursday, June 4th at Nautilus Gym, located at 1013 S. Fayetteville Street in Asheboro from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m. Layman will discuss how having a healthy spine can improve one’s overall health and quality of life for all ages and fitness levels.
