Free WOW! workshop focuses on back pain, sciatica

Barb Paschal, a retired rehabilitation physical therapist, presents “Great Self Help Ideas That Work For Back Pain & Sciatica,” a free WOW! Working on Wellness Forum starting at 2:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 12, at Trinity United Methodist Church, 100 S. Blake Ave.

Seating is limited, so attendees are encouraged to arrive early.

Paschal will talk about key muscles to stretch and strengthen, and how core alignment starts with one’s head, neck and shoulders. She’ll demonstrate for the audience and discuss the things people do with joints and muscles all day that can cause — or prevent — back and sciatica pain and problems.

WOW! Working on Wellness is a health education program of Dungeness Valley Health & Wellness Clinic — Sequim’s free clinic, which provides basic urgent care and chronic health care services to uninsured community members. Work is supported by more than 70 volunteers including physicians, other professional health care providers an laypersons, as well as private and public donations from the Sequim community and beyond.

The Basic Urgent Care Clinic is open to patients on Monday and Thursday evenings beginning at 5 p.m. Individuals interested in supporting the clinic may call 360-582-0218.
