BODYFIT AND BACK CARE CLASSES TO BEGIN IN AUGUST

In August, Simi Valley Hospital’s Back to Work Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Services department will offer two classes designed to teach people how to keep their bodies healthy and strong.

 

Healthy Back Class

Back to Work Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Services will present the first in a series of four classes involving proper back care, Thursday, August 2, from 6 p.m. – 7 p.m.

Specifically, those attending will learn tips on smart lifting techniques to avoid injury; what good back posture is; basic anatomy and the major muscle groups of the back; how to setup a work area (computer workstation) that translates to good posture; and why exercise is vital for a healthy back. The goal of this class is to have participants gain a better understanding of their back and come away with real tips to maintain long-term back health.

The classes will be held in Suite 100 of the Back to Work offices, located at 2755 Alamo Street in Simi Valley. Interested attendees must RSVP by calling (805) 955-8170. Cost is $5 per class and seating is limited. This class is for adults 18-years or older.

Bodyfit Workshop

The Bodyfit Workshop–sponsored by Back to Work Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Services–is an exercise workshop designed to improve posture, increase flexibility and strengthen the muscles that support the body. The workshop will be offered as a series of 6 classes, beginning Thursday, August 2, from 6 p.m. – 6:45 p.m.

Incorporating gentle yoga, pilates and other core stabilization exercises, the Bodyfit Workshop is also an excellent way to combat stress and muscle imbalances that may occur as a result of work or sports activities. Those suffering chronic tension, repetitive strain and poor posture will greatly benefit from this series of classes.

The classes will be held in Suite 100 of the Back to Work offices, located at 2755 Alamo Street in Simi Valley. Seating is limited and interested attendees must RSVP by calling (805) 955-8170. This 6-week workshop costs $40.

Back to Work is the ambulatory rehabilitation program of Simi Valley Hospital & Health Care Services dedicated to facilitating the early and safe recovery for those who have suffered injuries.
