Description

This month, Doctor of Physical Therapy, Trevor Nelson, DPT, will offer ways to “Maintain Indoor & Outdoor Activity Safely in Winter Months.” He will demonstrate the use of resistance bands and other household items for maintaining tone and flexibility. A set of light & medium bands will be given to each household. Josh from The Outfitter will review devices to minimize the risk of outdoor slips/falls. [If you’re shy, not to worry. Participation in the exercise activities is optional.
