  • Correct Posture Month | (Post Image)
    • Poor posture can cause a range of health problems, including back and neck pain, headaches, fatigue, and even breathing difficulties. Correct posture can also help to improve your confidence and energy levels. Take a moment to check your posture right now and make any necessary adjustments. When standing, your weight should be evenly distributed between both feet, with the feet shoulder-width apart. The knees should be slightly bent, and the pelvis should be in a neutral position. When sitting, your back should be straight, with the shoulders relaxed and the feet flat on the floor. The hips should be level with the knees, and the knees should be at a right angle to the floor. The head should be balanced on top of the spine, with the chin slightly tucked in. #CorrectPosture #HealthyLifestyle

  • Huntington’s Disease Awareness Month | (Post Image)
    • Huntington’s disease is a genetic disorder that affects the brain and nervous system. The disease causes the gradual breakdown of nerve cells in the brain, leading to progressive motor, cognitive, and psychiatric symptoms. The early symptoms include involuntary movements, such as twitching and jerking, and changes in mood and behavior. As the disease progresses, it can cause difficulties with balance and coordination, speech and swallowing problems, and cognitive decline. By raising awareness of the disease, we can support affected individuals and their loved ones, encourage greater funding for research, and ultimately find a cure. #EarlyDetection #HuntingtonsDiseaseAwareness

If you’re not sure what your numbers are, make an appointment with your healthcare provider to get checked. #HighBloodPressure #KnowYourNumbers #HealthScreenings
