I finally uploaded some of the pictures from the health fairs that Legacy Physical Therapy has participated at in the last few months. The first pictures is from the 1st annual Kirkwood Chamber of Commerce Health and Wellness Fair on 9/29/09. We look forward to participating in this event for years to come.
We had a good turnout at our first health fair appearance. We had fun raffling off two Cardinals' tickets!
Our most recent booth was at the Des Peres Lodge Health Fair on 11/7/09.
We look forward to getting out and talking to the public more at future health fairs. Educating women how they can help themselves is truly a passion of mine. If you hear of any upcoming fairs or health events that you think we should participate in, please let me know!
So, I thought that what better way to start out “Upshot” than with a wonderful article about what Women’s Health Physical Therapy is. Legacy Physical Therapy is happy to say that we provide all of these services at our facility.
Although I would like to take credit for this article, I cannot. It was written by Michele Wojciechowski and published in the Noveber 2009 issue of PT in Motion. I have included an excerpt of the article below and the link to get to the article online. I hope that you find the information helpful.
In the past, women’s health was most often thought of in terms of gynecological care. Even today, some physical therapists, hearing the words “women’s health,” first think of “pelvic floor dysfunction.” But that’s only one reason that women of all ages need and seek treatment.
"We help women who are tired of leaking, dealing with pelvic pain, and wanting to get their body back in shape after baby (even if it’s been 30 years) all without relying on medications or surgery."
