Y offers medically supervised back exercise and training class

My back hurts … I should work it out … how?

Back pain can be one of the most frustrating conditions we try to manage and it can disrupt our life. Have you ever wanted to specifically strengthen your neck or low back but did not know how? Maybe you have suffered from back pain and did not want to risk further injury. What is the best way to do this?

The Waynesboro YMCA is offering a medically supervised workout program taught by a physical therapist from Barren Ridge Physical Therapy with specialized training in back conditions, to safely and effectively work out both the upper and lower spine promoting stabilization and optimal function.

The class will include back care insights as well as progressive yet safe flexibility exercises and core training exercises, giving you the knowledge to allow you to continue independently on your own routine.

Classes will start in September, held Tuesdays and Thursdays, running for a total of six weeks, each lasting one hour. Must have a minimum of five people registered for the class. Jeremy Smith, PT, from Barren Ridge Physical Therapy will instruct each class and answer questions as they arise.
