NORTH ARLINGTON (Oct. 21, 2010) — Residents living in and around the North Arlington community can be screened to reduce their risk of having a stroke. Life Line Screening Radiology will be at the North Arlington Senior Center on Friday, Nov. 5. The site is located at 10 Beaver Ave. in North Arlington. Appointments will begin at 9 a.m.
A stroke, also known as a “brain attack,” is ranked as the third leading cause of death in the United States and often occurs without warning. In fact, four out of five people who suffer stroke have no apparent warning signs prior to the stroke. The good news is that with early detection, 80 percent of strokes can be prevented.
Screenings are painless, accurate and affordable. They help identify potential health problems such as blocked arteries and irregular heart rhythm, abdominal aortic aneurysms and hardening of the arteries in the legs, which is a strong predictor of heart disease. A bone density screening to assess osteoporosis risk is also offered and is appropriate for both men and women.
Register for a Wellness Package with Health Rhythm for $0. All five screenings take 60-90 minutes to complete.
