Screening Program: Muscle Strength & Balance
We have designed and begun implementation of a program to present information and screen participants for the strength and balance of 12-24 major muscle groups. Why would participants want to understand more about their muscle strength & balance? Maintaiing proper balance of mucle strength around any given joint is critically important for so many different reasons including: prevention of joint degeneration, reduction of pain, recovery from surgery, increasing energy and maximizing athletic performance. This is a health parameter that everybody needs to know in depth, yet very few do. The need is great.
The DxF is currently seeking venues interested in holding these free screening events on a one time or ongoing basis. Venues desired could be public or private venues in Suffolk County, New York. Potential venues include: physician's offices, yoga studios, fitness facilities, sporting events, team activities, gymnastic centers, dance studios, etc. Incorporating these screens into your facilities or events benefits your clients, members or staff. and sets your organization apart from others.
