Boston Moves for Health Initiative Event
Mayor Thomas Menino’s Boston Moves for Health initiative will be hosting an event at the Parkman Bandstand in the Boston Common, from 10 a.m. to noon on October 13. The initiative aims to inspire Boston residents to lose a collective 1 million pounds and move a total of 10 million miles this year.
The event includes a free workout led by coaches from Reebok CrossFit, in Back Bay, and features physicians from Khalsa Chiropractic, in Boston, Brookline and Cambridge, who specialize in the evaluation and treatment of musculoskeletal injuries.
“Participants at the event will gain the support of others seeking to improve their health and enjoy fun exercises led by CrossFit coaches,” says Dr. Sara Morrissey of Khalsa Chiropractic. “My colleague Dr. Abbie Zubiel and I will also be there to demonstrate soft-tissue treatment methods such as myofascial release and the Graston Technique, a remarkable procedure that allows us to detect and treat areas of scar tissue to improve range of motion and reduce pain.”
Morrissey says that CrossFit is a core strength and conditioning program designed to bring about competence in multiple fitness domains, including stamina, strength, flexibility and balance. The event is for people of all ages and fitness levels.
