Lunch and Learn: Don't Break a Leg! March 27

Learn about osteoporosis and what you CAN do about it with Jeanette Burney, PT, MSPT, RYT, at this Lunch and Learn on Monday, March 27, 12:00 pm at People Plus in Brunswick. 

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with osteoporosis, you have probably been told you have low bone density, you are at risk for fractures, so “don’t fall,” and do weight-bearing exercise or work on your balance. You may be overwhelmed with all the information thrown at you. 

During this Lunch and Learn we will talk about osteoporosis, what it is and what we can do about it. We will review things you can do in your everyday life to avoid fractures. You will have the opportunity to practice a few at-home movements to begin to address osteoporosis and we will discuss different types of exercise and the benefits of each. 

Burney is the owner and operator of Body in Tune, LLC a yoga-based physical therapy practice based in Topsham. She has a BS in psychology from Bates College and MSPT from Boston University. Jeanette is a men’s and women’s health physical therapist, is a certified manual physical therapist, is a 500-hour registered yoga teacher, and is certified to teach the Fishman method of yoga for osteoporosis. 

Jeanette believes that quality of life matters, that balance both physical and in life matters. Her mission is to prevent falls and fractures in those with osteoporosis through guided learning experiences and yoga. 

The Lunch and Learn is free, open to the public. Please bring a lunch and we will supply chips, drink and dessert. Registration is required. FMI or to register call 729-0757 or www.peopleplusmaine.org.
