Getting around without pain gets more challenging as we get older. What may seem like just simple back or leg pain could actually be muscles that are tightening or loosening. If you like to go for long walks, Dr. Keith Fischer of Northern Door Physical Therapy and Wellness says your body could be adjusting itself to accommodate muscle changes which could create more pain when you walk. But Dr. Fischer, who has worked with athletes including pro golfers and Olympic-caliber triathlon runners, says relief is possible without medication or surgery. One local man is proof of that.
Dr. Keith Fischer will be sharing his insights through a program he calls “Do You Want to Keep Walking or Is Pain Getting in the Way?” It’s sponsored by Northern Door Health & Wellness Ministry. It’s set for 4 PM August 12th at First Baptist Church in Sister Bay.
