Back School with Dr. Paul Berkeley (Online)

Up to 80% of adults will experience back pain in their lifetime, and in 2017, low back pain became the largest cause of disability in America. Low back pain becomes more common as you get older, worse with prolonged sitting and can not only increase pain, but reduce quality of life. However, you don’t have to live with the pain, as so many of us are prone to do. Back pain can be remarkably improved with the right exercise, activity and behavior modifications. If back pain or sciatica is keeping you from feeling your best, join us at Back School.
Classes take a fitness-forward approach to back pain management and give you the skills you need to better manage back pain flare ups, or avoid them all together.

To learn more, attend a free introductory online lecture on Thursday, September 8; registration required.
