Saint Joseph Mount Sterling Walk With a Doc Planned for June 20
Program empowers people to improve health through physical activity
Mount Sterling, Ky. (June 17, 2015)— Keep moving this summer with Saint Joseph Mount Sterling, part of KentuckyOne Health, as it continues its monthly Walk With a Doc series on Saturday, June 20, 2015 at 9 a.m. at Easy Walker Park, located at 1395 Osborne Rd. in Mt. Sterling.
Saint Joseph Mount Sterling Walk With a Doc events are part of a nationwide program that empowers people to improve their health through physical activity while they exercise side-by-side with their health care providers. Participants can also receive complementary health screenings at the event.
The event will feature local chiropractor Tamera L. Tolson, DC, of Linton Spine & Joint Center. Dr. Tolson will discuss how routine, low-impact exercise can improve health without damaging the body.
All are welcome; participants are encouraged to invite family and friends to walk together toward a healthier lifestyle. Walking has the lowest dropout rate of any physical activity, according to the American Heart Association. Research has shown that you could gain two hours of life for each hour of regular exercise.
According to America Walks, brisk walking has been shown to reduce body fat, lower blood pressure, increase high-density lipoprotein and even reduce risks of bone fracture. Not only that, it is also associated with lower mortality rates from cardiovascular disease and cancer.
