FROM OUR PRESIDENT CONNIE COFFMAN:

Can you believe the weather we had the week before the end of February! We all had been inside so much and suffering from cabin fever that this was a welcome relief. I bet a lot of you waited in line at the car washes in this area to get the salt and grime off your car. We sure did enjoy the little taste of Spring in February! Let’s hope that the rest of our winter weather will include little or no snow, sleet, or rain along with comfortable temperatures.

As you already know, I have been doing physical therapy in order to strengthen my spine after my bout with an unknown ??? that caused me to wear that clamshell brace for the seven or eight months. Well, I finally “graduated” from that physical therapy! I had been having hip pain so I went to see my sports medicine doctor. He looked at a recent X-Ray and suggested that I see an orthopedic surgeon to give me a new hip! However, when I did go to see the doctor that gave me the new knee, he took X-Rays and said that I had a little more time before surgery was necessary! But, guess what! He prescribed physical therapy to get the leg stronger and improve my gait as I have, what I call a hitch, when I walk.
So once again, I am doing Physical Therapy. The first week that I went, I could barely walk and get up and out of a chair. I really wondered if I would be able to continue. Now, three weeks into this, I am beginning to see results and I can move around without the pain!!! Which brings me to my newest suggestion for all of us “couch potatoes!” Get up and get moving!! It is amazing how good you will feel if you do some exercising. Chris has an arthritis exercise class that gives you all kinds of exercises to help you, especially if you suffer from arthritis. And our exercise room, although it is small, is home to a lot of equipment that will, if done correctly, make you feel so much better. And remember, if you decide to use the treadmills, please clip the off switch onto your clothing just in case! Better to be safe than sorry. So stop in our Center and take advantage of the activities that will keep you able to enjoy your life to the fullest.

A NOTE FROM CHRIS:
PLEASE LOOK AT YOUR LABEL ON THE FRONT OF YOUR NEWSLETTER  IF YOU DO NOT HAVE 2017 MARKED ON YOUR LABEL YOUR DUES ARE NOW DUE.
