Taking the strain out of care: Sutter Lakeside Hospital offers free rehabilitation seminar

LAKEPORT, Calif. – Sutter Lakeside Hospital is hosting a free public rehabilitation seminar with licensed physical therapist Joe Prisco, director of rehabilitation at Sutter Lakeside Hospital.

The seminar will be on Thursday, Nov. 29, from 5 to 6 p.m. in the hospital conference room at 5176 Hill Road East in Lakeport.

Interested participants can register by calling 707-262-5121.

The seminar will include light refreshments, a brief presentation on common musculoskeletal and speech-language conditions, and an open forum for attendees to ask questions.

Half of Americans report muscular or skeletal injuries – painful and debilitating injuries or conditions that affect daily productivity.

In fact, musculoskeletal conditions are far more common than other chronic conditions such as cancer, diabetes, or respiratory disease.

From a child with a broken arm to a senior with a hip replacement, physical therapy can benefit people of all ages.

Physical therapy can reduce or eliminate musculoskeletal pain, help patients recover from an injury without surgery, improve mobility, recover from a stroke, and more.

Additionally, rehabilitation services include speech-language therapy. Speech-language therapy aids patients of all ages in a number of ways, including recovery from a stroke or overcoming a stutter.

Sutter Lakeside recently expanded its speech-language therapy program to include pediatric speech-language therapy, which can help children with speech disorders such as difficulty producing sounds or pronouncing words correctly, and language disorders such as difficulty understanding or processing language.
