        2017-12-19: Seven Tips for Lumbar Stenosis

    Physical Therapist Terri Night, author of Rehab Your Own Spinal Stenosis, presents seven basic tips that will improve the health of your spine. Spinal Stenosis (narrowing of the spinal canal or nerve openings) is quite common in people over 50. Yet most of us know very little about it, and even less about how to manage it. If your "stenosis diagnosis" has caused you all sorts of confusion and panic, take heart. Many people with stenosis are living symptom-free. Ready to become your spine's number one advocate? Then don't miss this great discussion!

        2018-01-23: Current Research in Hearing Loss & Hearing Aids

    The more we delve into hearing loss, the more we find that the hearing system is affected by all parts of the human body. Did you know that people with kidney disease have a much higher incidence of hearing loss? Did you know there is a strong correlation between hearing loss and dementia. Current research continues to amaze us and show us how important addressing hearing loss is for overall health. The fact that the hearing system is so complex makes solving issues equally complex. Today?s aids can deliver better speech clarity, more natural sound and better functioning in groups. Come listen to Leigh Kjeldsen, Au.D. and find out about the latest in hearing loss and hearing research.
