Good Pain? Bad Pain? Functional Movement Classes: Following the old adage of “no pain, no gain” can sometimes cause more harm than good to our bodies. Pain is your body’s way of telling you to stop, protect and take corrective action! Too often we adapt to pain and make it a habit - and over time the “hurt you feel, becomes the feeling you hurt.” Chiropractor Dr. Sarah Potthoff explains the different types of soft tissue aches and explores the true sources of pain, rather than chasing the symptoms we learn to accommodate. She explores the mind/body connection and shows ways to re-train the muscles to respond correctly to YOUR pain. Start living pain-free today! Classes are held every Wednesday night from 6-7pm at the Casey Health Institute, 800 S. Frederick Avenue, MD. Visit www.caseyhealth.org to register or call 301-355-2030.

If you’re looking for something fun and fresh to add to your exercise routine, this is for you! Classes are held every Wednesday night from 5:30 – 6:30pm at the Casey Health Institute, 800 S. Frederick Ave., MD. Visit www.caseyhealth.org to register or call 301-355-2030.
