Exercise and Lower Back Pain
Thursday, December 8th, 2:30pm
Did you know that approximately 80 percent of Americans will experience lower back pain at some point in their lives? Years of poor posture, excessive body weight, and repetitive movement can wreak havoc on your lumbar vertebrae. Attend this clinic if you would like to learn about various stretches and exercises that have been shown to prevent or reduce the severity of lower back pain.
Understanding Food Nutrition Labels
Wednesday, December 14th, 1:30pm
Food nutrition labels can be confusing and misleading; attention grabbers like “Fat Free” and “Sugar Free” don’t always mean healthier. This clinic will help you understand what you should pay attention to on food labels and how to read labels without being a nutrition expert.
