TEN TIPS FOR GOAL SETTING & INTENTIONS

Jan 08, 2021
It’s a new year, which means new goals, resolutions, and intentions!  A New Year also means pages turned, fresh starts, and brand new beginnings. The start of the year is the perfect opportunity to ditch…

GETTING OUT AND STAYING SAFE THIS WINTER

There’s no doubt in my mind that most Vermonters will find themselves outside a lot this winter.  Vermonters usually make the most of the four to five to almost six months of cold, snowy weather, but with the required social distancing this year, it’s very likely that many more of us will spend time…

LEND A (SOCIALLY DISTANT) HAND THIS WINTER

Winter in Vermont can be a magical time. I’ll always remember walking through town last January and taking in all the winter activities going on around me; kids sledding on the hill in front of the church, families ice skating in the park, and cross country skiers breaking trails in the fields behind…

GIVING THANKS FOR THE HERE & NOW

Thanksgiving has always been my favorite holiday. I get giddy about it like little kids do about Christmas morning. But I can’t help myself; it’s typically the first time I see my parents and siblings after a few months. I look forward to the good food, warm drinks, and snuggly cold weather, and I typically…

FINDING THANKFULNESS AMIDST THE CHAOS

This year has definitely been a chaotic one, hopefully the most hectic that I will ever experience in my life.  From the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting economic struggles to the social justice inequities coming to the forefront to the presidential election and the resulting divisiveness & discord…

WHAT I ENJOY THE MOST ABOUT PHYSICAL THERAPY

As a child growing up, I accidentally dropped one of my father’s heirloom silver pocket watches down the stairs. I stood frozen in time as the watch tumbled down the stairs bursting open, spewing gears and springs everywhere.   Growing up with parents as engineers, I always took an interest in “how…

FIRST YEAR REFLECTIONS

With National Physical Therapy Month, I wanted to reflect upon my first year as a practicing clinician and share some of my experiences with all of you - what it is like to be a new grad, some of the ups, downs, and everything in between.   This first year practicing as a physical therapist has certainly…

LIFE AS A PHYSICAL THERAPIST ASSISTANT

Being a Physical Therapist Assistant at PT360 affords me a great deal of autonomy, for which I am incredibly grateful as others in my profession may not have the same opportunity.  Physical Therapist Assistants (PTAs) work under the supervision of a Physical Therapist (PT) to provide treatment and help…

WE'RE KICKING OFF NATIONAL PHYSICAL THERAPY MONTH THIS WEEK!

October is National Physical Therapy Month and there are many reasons to celebrate at PT360, from our amazing physical therapists & physical therapist assistants to our wonderful patients who keep returning to work with us year after year.  Most importantly and more seriously, we are celebrating this…

PROPER LIFTING TECHNIQUES

One of the leading causes of injury in the workplace is lifting objects too heavy and lifting incorrectly.  According to the Bureau of Labor and Statistics in a 2001 report, 36% of missed workdays were due to back and shoulder injuries. The leading causes of these injuries being overexertion and cumulative…

SITTING POSTURE & WHY IT MATTERS

The majority of Americans report working at a desk for their job and up to 86% of people sit at a desk for up to 8 hours a day.  Now as students are returning to school, even more people will be required to stay seated for extended periods of time, so it is time to talk about the importance of posture!…
