Feeling Fit with FSHD – Nerve mobility and pain

Event Series Event Series: Feeling Fit with FSHD

May 9 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

18:00 PM CET | 17:00 PM UK | 12:00 PM Noon ET | 11:00 AM CT | 10:00 AM MT | 9:00 AM PT

This month we have the pleasure of welcoming Arielle Levy, a physical therapist who trained with Julie Herschberg (legendary in our community). We’re eager to meet the next generation of PTs who have deep understanding and training in neuromuscular condition.

Arielle will be discussing nerve mobility and pain. Postural impairments and compensatory use of muscles can often lead to compression or excess stress on nerves throughout the body leading to sensations of pain, muscle stiffness, or numbness/tingling. The sessions will focus on mobility and self massage techniques to reduce compression on nerves and improve mobility of nerves throughout the upper and lower body to reduce pain and maximize mobility throughout the body.

About Arielle Levy, DPT

 Arielle has been a doctor of physical therapy for 6 years with a specialization in neurologic rehabilitation. “I am passionate about combining my knowledge of the nervous system, biomechanics, exercise, and pain to help people improve function, quality of life, and reduce pain. I have always been fascinated by the human brain and body and have had a passion for dance, movement, and exercise from a young age. When I am not working I love to travel, dance, and cook!”

Feeling Fit with FSHD meets on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of every month at 12:00 pm (noon) U.S. Eastern Time. Come dressed for exercise and have on hand any safety and assistive devices you need. Not every exercise is appropriate or safe for every individual, so please use your best judgement and consult your health care provider.

Please come prepared with a stable chair or stool (back of chair is optional).
