Northern Physical Therapy will be hosting their third annual Women’s Health Educational Event at their Sparta clinic (31 Ida Red) on Thursday, May 16 from 5:30-7pm.

The open house-style event, which coincides with Women’s Health Week, will feature wine and desserts, and guests are encouraged to bring a friend. Physical Therapists and Women’s Health Specialists will be on hand to discuss balance & falls, joint protection, athletic injuries, lymphedema, spine care, incontinence, and other women’s health topics.

RSVP for the event, which is free of charge, by May 13 by visiting www.northernpts.com/rsvp. Call 616.887.5152 for more information.

Northern’s Sparta clinic has two staff members who each have over 25 years of physical therapy experience: Julie Blodgett who is a Physical Therapist, and Cathy DeBerti who is a Physical Therapist Assistant. Blodgett is hoping this open house will answer questions regarding issues that many women face. “Sometimes women’s heath topics can be embarrassing to talk about in the open, or they get overlooked,” she says. “We’re providing an open and friendly environment to educate people on issues that may be concerning them.”

Northern Physical Therapy is a physical and occupational therapy rehabilitation facility with five locations. In addition to therapy they also provide prevention and wellness services such as massage, pool classes, athletic training, aquatic therapy, and functional capacity evaluations.
