Just because we can't see it, doesn't mean it's not there. And no one knows that better than those with invisible illnesses. Concussions, PCS, Miniere's disease, reoccurring headaches, vestibular dysfunction, dizziness and vertigo - many of these illnesses persist for months and years. Join us for a bi-monthly Invisible Illness Support Group to meet with others who battle similar invisible illnesses. Each group meeting, we'll focus on a different aspect of invisible illness:
September 14: Mindfulness and Understanding Your Diagnosis
November 9: Strategies for Coping with the Upcoming Holidays
These sessions will be led by Dana Tress, Physical Therapist, Certified Concussion Specialist, and Ergonomic Specialist and Courtney Behrens, Licensed Clinical Social Worker.
STRENGTH . BALANCE . CONFIDENCE
Shawn Tegtmeier (Be Amazed Training) and Dana Tress (Smith Balance+Concussion Center) are collaborating to offer you a strength training class that focuses on all things balance! Staying fit and strong as you age is very important, but equally important is protecting your balance and being stable on your own two feet.
This 6-week fitness class series will meet weekly on Thursdays from 1-2pm at Smith Physical Therapy (110 W. Woodstock St, Crystal Lake) starting October 7. Each week's class will have a balance focus along with a strength training workout to keep participants challenged yet in control.
October 7-November 11 (6 weeks)
