The Lima Family YMCA brought in another doc for this month's Walk With a Doc event.
Dr. Monica Loke with Lima Memorial Health System was in Saturday morning to talk about spinal health and the health benefits of walking 30 minutes a day. A walking session around the Y's indoor track followed the talk and question and answer session. Dr. Loke says that keeping an eye on your spinal health is important, especially as you get older.
"There’s no spine transplant, there’s no replacing it - you can replace some parts, but you don’t get the whole spine back, so if you want your spine to work well when you're an oldie, you'd better take care of it when you’re young, because it’s all about preservation of function," said Dr. Loke.
The next Walk With a Doc event will be September 21st at 9 a.m.
