HealthSource of Kirkland to exchange health screenings for donations

HealthSource Chiropractic and Progressive Rehab wants to help start the New Year off right by providing free community health screenings in exchange for a $10 donation to the American Heart Association.

The health screening, including blood pressure and Body mass Index (BMI), a $210 value, will help track down even the smallest amounts of pain, including those suffering from a wide range of problems such as low back pain, headaches, neck pain, shoulder or arm pain, bulging or herniated discs, leg pain, numbness and more. Even X-rays will be included if necessary. There are some restrictions for federal insurance beneficiaries.

Donations will be accepted at the office located at 13021 N.E. 85th St., Kirkland, through Feb. 28, but contributors are encouraged to call and set up an appointment.

Heart disease, stroke and other forms of cardiovascular disease remain the No. 1 and most costly killer in the United States, taking the lives of far too many loved ones and friends each year.

Donations will help offset the costs of medical research, which is leading to new ways to prevent, treat and even cure heart disease and stroke. To schedule an appointment, call 425-827-0422.
