Mastering the Core Workshop by Dr. Brady

Wed, 10/30/2019 - 9:00am

The Boothbay Region Y (BRYMCA) is pleased to announce that local chiropractor, Dr. Brady Fergola, will offer two November workshops at the Y, one on Wednesday, Nov. 6 and a follow-up workshop on Wednesday, Nov. 20 from 9:15 to 10:15 a.m. called “Mastering the Core.” Workshops will include a 30-minute presentation and 30 minutes of demonstration.

These workshops are free to all Boothbay Y members and $10 for nonmembers. Key points include learning about the anatomy and function of body’s core, the role of the core for performance in sport and life, common dysfunctional patterns, how to properly assess breathing and the core, and will include hands-on assessment with proper cues.

Dr. Fergola is a Maine native who attended the University of Maine and obtained a bachelor’s degree in athletic training. He then went on to obtain his doctorate of chiropractic from Logan University. While at Logan, he attended many postgraduate courses on performance care and rehabilitation to complement his chiropractic studies and help better serve his patients. He has a passion for educating his patients and working with them to help them achieve their health and fitness goals.

Fergola abides to the “movement is medicine” approach and believes that functional and proper movement helps people stay active, pain free, and doing what they love to do. He takes pride in his ability to look at patients from a global standpoint, assess them, and work them through a proper treatment plan. His philosophy and practice goes hand in hand with the evidence-based assessment and treatment model that is redefining the manual medicine world. He believes in the ability to live pain free for a better quality of life while maximizing human performance and minimizing injury. Fergola is operating out of the office of The Boothbay Chiropractor in Boothbay Harbor.

Similar workshops, recently held at the Central Lincoln County YMCA (CLC) in Damariscotta were well received and helpful. Fergola and the Y are planning workshops in the future, with topics including how to improve our poster, and the effect of posture on daily living. Future workshops will somewhat build upon these initial presentations. Whether you currently have back pain, or just want to strengthen and shape your middle, please consider attending. Advance registration is encouraged for each of these dates and can be done at the front desk of the Y or just call the Y at 633-2855. For more information contact Abby Jones at
