Low Back Pain & Sciatica Workshop
Strengthening your back may be one of the most important things you can do for your body. A couple of hours invested in this interactive workshop could save you from a lifetime of back and leg pain issues.
PhysioFit Physical Therapy & Wellness has helped hundreds of people who suffered from lower back pain and sciatica…it’s one of our main areas of focus.
Our workshop will cover the causes of lower back pain and sciatica, picking the right treatment accordingly, and ways you can help avoid aggravating the condition. For example, a problem in your back can cause pain, numbness or tingling in your butt, groin or leg.
Learn more about the proper exercises and therapy for successful treatment without the side effects of medications, injections or surgery. Attendees will leave with knowledge of what could be causing their back pain and proper exercises to start their journey to a healthy back.
This workshop is ideal for:
• Anyone who wants a stronger back

Kids Play Pilates - 6 Class Series
This class is designed to help kids develop body awareness and healthy movement habits. We introduce Pilates and complementary movement methods in a fun way to help students connect with their bodies to understand alignment and form.
Combining structured and explorative learning students are given the opportunity to connect movements in this series to other activities, in and outside of school environments. Students are challenged in agility, mobility, and flexibility while working on balance, coordination and core stability. Using mindful movement and meditation, students are encouraged to make the mind-body connection. With consistent practice, kids can use the skills learned in this series to improve performance in and prevent injury from their physical activities, improve posture, and manage stress.
