This month we had a guest speaker, Peter St. Germain from Brunswick Physical Therapy, PLLC. He gave a presentation about back pain. He gave us sheets demonstrating exercises for people experiencing pain while sitting and standing for long periods of time. He addressed these common causes of pain: spinal stenosis, disc bulge, and degenerative disc. He talked about treatments, the “tools” to fix these problems. Following his presentation, Mr. St. Germain was available to address individual concerns.

Please join us at our next monthly meeting on Thursday, July 14th. We look forward to meeting you.
