Doctors advise that you take certain tests to screen for breast cancer. Women over the age of 40 should have regular mammograms. Based upon statistics it compiled, the American Cancer Society says that mammograms reduce deaths from breast cancer by as much as 40 percent.*
In the same way that cancer screenings become a regular part of our healthcare, it’s also a good idea for us to be proactive about our total health. Physical therapists like those at Be Fit specialize in healing injuries and treating disorders such as fibromyalgia. Be Fit also offers no-cost exams for you to check out stubborn muscle and joint pain, and Pilates classes for you to maintain your fitness level.
May you be reminded this month to check in on your health, and help someone else who is not in the best of health.
