Guilderland, NY – Thank you all for your fun comments about my past two articles about Wisconsin and Fortnite. I enjoyed your feedback and hearing your stories as well. It was refreshing to write about something other than health related topics. But now, it’s time to get back to business and let you know about some new and exciting things going on at our office. We have been gathering your feedback and looking at new ways to accommodate the needs of the community better.
FREE SCOLIOSIS SCREENINGS: Most of our children around the age of 12-13 get checked for scoliosis by the school nurse. If there is cause for concern, they are referred to their pediatrician who may refer them to an orthopedist, who will most likely recommend a “wait and watch” approach. During this time the scoliosis can progress. Stop waiting…DO SOMETHING! Scoliosis causes permanent structural changes to your child’s spine which can last a lifetime and lead to other health issues. From now until the end of September, we are offering FREE SCOLIOSIS SCREENINGS and consultations. We will perform a thorough spinal evaluation and we can discuss treatment options for your child.
NEW CLASS THIS FALL: “MOVE STONGER” CLASS
You have been asking for a class like this and I have been listening. Now it is time to put the plan into action. This class is designed for individuals who have graduated from physical therapy but would like continued assistance with gaining spinal strength and movement. Have you ever said “I don’t feel comfortable going to the gym by myself” or “I feel that my personal trainer is having me do exercises that don’t feel safe for my spinal condition?” Then this class is for you. With my thorough knowledge of all spinal conditions, I have designed a 6-week program to help you MOVE STRONGER SAFELY! This class meets once per week on Thursday mornings from 10:00 -11:00 beginning September 20. Class will be held at the Crossfit Aevitas Yoga Studio, 1 Charles Park Blvd, Guilderland. Cost is $120 for 6 classes. Call our office at 518-869-3415 to register. Full payment required for complete registration. Class space is limited. If this time is not ideal for you, make a recommendation for another time. If there is enough interest, we will add additional classes.
PERSONAL THERAPY SESSIONS: If you like the idea of moving stronger but would prefer individual sessions – just you and your doctor working together for one hour! Then this option is for you. Call for a “PERSONAL THERAPY CONSULTATION” so we can assess and developed a plan just for you. Sessions will be exercise based with myofascial therapy if indicated. Introductory price is $85 per hour.
DURABLE MEDICAL EQUIPMENT: We are providing our patients the benefits of home use medical equipment to include: TENS units, cervical and lumbar home traction units and lumbar braces. These devices can provide great pain relief and are used in the comfort of your home. Set up an appointment to discuss which devices could benefit you and to maximize your insurance benefit.
