TIPS FOR HAPPY HIPS THIS WINTER

Dec 03, 2021
As the colder weather arrives and the snow starts to fall, many of us begin digging out our winter gear in anticipation of outdoor activities, whether that means snowshoeing, skating, skiing, snowboarding,…

START YOUR DAY WITH HEALTHY HABITS

How do you start your day? Is self-care on your list? It's easy to get caught up in our schedules of work, family, cooking, chores, appointments, and other things that just come up each day. Making time for yourself first thing in the morning can help face any and all issues with a clear head. These…

STAYING HEALTHY DURING FLU SEASON (AND A GLOBAL PANDEMIC)

Here we are again, entering another winter season and the excitement of the upcoming holidays.  This time of year also has the not-so-pleasant association of being cold and flu season and, for the past 2 years, has occurred over the backdrop of the COVID-19 pandemic.  With the risk of getting sick more…

"OH THE PLACES YOU'LL GO..."

 Last year for National Physical Therapy Month, I shared how I became a physical therapist, following the advice of one of my undergrad professors to combine my love for coaching with my fascination with the human body.  This year, I spent some time thinking about what aspect of my experience in physical…

THE COOPERATIVE DIFFERENCE OF EMPLOYEE OWNERSHIP

As PT360 Owners look towards another October, National Employee Ownership month, we pause to reflect on our history and brainstorm as owners where we want to focus on the upcoming year.   As the only physical therapy cooperative in the nation, PT360 was created from the ground up with a solid foundation…

A (FAIRLY) BRIEF HISTORY OF PHYSICAL THERAPY

Did you know that October is more than just the month when you can enjoy pumpkin-spiced-anything-and-everything, binge on apple cider donuts, and layer on the flannel & oversized scarves?  While I certainly enjoy partaking in all the above, October is extra special to me because it’s also National Physical…

OCTOBER IS NATIONAL PHYSICAL THERAPY MONTH!

This month we are celebrating Physical Therapy (PT) in a big way at PT360! Not only is it National Physical Therapy Month, but it’s also 100 years since the American Physical Therapy Association was established, the overseer of all things PT. Give us a reason to celebrate and we will run with it!   Physical…

BALANCE: WHY IT'S IMPORTANT & HOW IT WORKS

There are a couple different ways we can think about balance - we can think about it as managing work/life balance, as well as social life and responsibilities balance. These are all good things to work on for a happy/healthy life, however today we will be discussing physical balance and the three systems…

CREATE BALANCE WITH YOUR POSTURE

Good posture is more than “stand up straight”.  Knowing what good posture is can help us all improve our own.  The spine has 2 natural curves that you need to maintain. These are the curves found from the base of your head to your shoulders and the curve from the upper back to the base of your spine.…

RETURN TO SPORTS: THE INTERNAL BATTLE

One of the more challenging aspects of returning back to a sport is working with the comparison of your ability level before and after your time away. I struggled with this immensely after completing my last collegiate season of Track and Field. I had taken some time away from running and as I returned,…

DYNAMIC WARM-UPS VS. STATIC STRETCHING

We are starting to approach the fall, which means fall sports are beginning as well!  With this in mind, at PT360, we start to turn our attention towards how we can best prepare our body for this change in activity level and what we can do to facilitate this transition. You may be wondering, what is…
