Saint Thomas Stones River Physical Therapy Department provided a local balance education event and free balance screening at Cannon County Senior Center recently. This is an ongoing partnership between Saint Thomas Stones River Hospital and the local Senior Center promoting senior health education opportunities to local residents. Saint Thomas Health is a part of Ascension, the largest non-profit health system in the U.S. and the world's largest Catholic health system.
"The physical therapy team at Saint Thomas Stones River is pleased to provide a class to the local community at Cannon County Senior Center with a focus on balance deficits and fall prevention," said therapist Jamie Sadler of Saint Thomas Stones River Hospital, "Free balance screenings were administered for preventative measures to help pinpoint individual risk to help avoid future falls. I would like to personally thank the staff at the senior center for allowing us to provide these services and give back to our wonderful seniors across our community."
Saint Thomas Stones River Hospital looks forward to providing monthly education topics and screenings in the future.
