Retired physical therapist Barb Paschal presents a free WOW! Working on Wellness Forum titled “Surprise Gifts: Less Hip and Knee Pain” at 2:30 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 13, at Trinity United Methodist Church, 100 S. Blake Ave., Sequim.
Most people don’t realize how closely connected and interdependent our hips and knees are. All four of these joints are so important to our mobility and balance, and despite injuries, surgeries, and arthritis, our hips and knees can have less pain and more opportunity for increased strength and flexibility.
At the workshop, learn easy ways to give yourself the gift of happier and healthier hips and knees.
Paschal has helped people of all ages struggle with disabilities. She believes that our bodies are amazing, and that exercising them can be fun and rewarding.
From 1:45-2:15 p.m., volunteer nurses from the clinic will be available to check the blood pressure of anyone who may be interested.
