Thursday, September 28, 2017

10:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

There is still time to register for this event! Call us at 603-643-7788 to register today.

This free one-on-one screening with one of our physical therapists will evaluate your balance and mobility, provide valuable insight into fall prevention, and offer solutions to decrease your risk.

Participants will need to complete a medical history and balance scale prior to their screening. The therapist will review your history, and put you through a series of test to evaluate your balance and determine your risk of fall. You will leave the screening with some tools that you can use to improve your balance.

The screening will take approximately 30 minutes, and openings are by appointment only. Space is limited, and pre-registration is required. Call us at 603-643-7788 to register.

Walk It Off: The Role of Exercise in Management of Pain

Physical Therapist, Cioffredi & Associates

Learn how physical therapists effectively treat pain while teaching people how to manage and avoid relapses. Physical therapy is a safer alternative to pain medication; there are no side effects, and even some added benefits. Developing one’s competence and confidence to handle and recover from periods of pain in life is fundamental to building resilience.
