A Focus on Back Care During National Physical Therapy Month

Dean Clinic Offering a Free Back Care Injury Seminar in October

As the leaves fall in Wisconsin and we brace for snow, now is the time to talk about how to keep our backs healthy.  In honor of National Physical Therapy Month, Dean Clinic Therapy Services is offering a free back care injury seminar. 

The seminar will be interactive and informational, covering all you need to know to help maintain a healthy back.  Learn how to properly sit, stand and move through life to decrease stress on your back. 

“If you have ever experienced low back pain, you are certainly not alone,” says AnneMarie Bell, Dean Clinic Physical Therapist.  “Studies show that about 60 percent of Americans experience low back pain that affects their lives daily.  The good news is that most cases of low back pain are not serious and will respond well to conservative, proven treatments such as physical therapy.”

To learn helpful ideas that you can easily work into your day to prevent back pain, join us on Tuesday, October 29 from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Dean Clinic – East.  Call 608-824-4201 to sign up for this free interactive seminar.
