BALANCE: WHY IT'S IMPORTANT & HOW IT WORKS

Sep 24, 2021
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…

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…

BRACHIATION AND SHOULDER HEALTH

What do gymnasts, little kids, and monkeys have in common? They are all great at brachiation (“brachium” is Latin for “arm”), which is a means of locomotion by swinging from one hand to the other. Monkeys use brachiation to swing among tree branches, children brachiate on jungle gyms, and gymnasts exhibit…

IT'S ALL ABOUT THAT BASE, SO LET'S BUILD A STRONG ONE

The shoulder is an amazingly mobile joint that allows you to wave to your friends, throw a football, perform sun salutations in yoga, and attempt to get to that “just out of reach” itch on your back.  However, all that mobility comes at a price – the shoulder is inherently unstable!  It needs a very…

WARMING UP FOR A DAY ON THE WATER

This beautiful, hot weather we have had brings us great opportunities to get out on the water! Whether you like to lie on the beach, enjoy paddleboarding, kayaking, or swimming, working on our shoulders is essential to keep them healthy for these sports. Well, maybe not the lying on the beach part. Although…

GROUP AQUATIC CLASSES

Aquatic based exercise is a great way to create a community that allows participants to socially distance while becoming a strong family each week when we gather together. The 92 deg salt water pools at PT360 provide a healing environment that allows for greater benefits year round.  Friendships have…

SMALL GROUP TRAININGS AT PT360

PT60’s classes, or as we like to call them, Small Group Trainings (SGT), are offered exclusively at our South Burlington location. Small group training sessions consist of 8 participants or less, offering you more 1-1 attention for your personal needs and goals.  These trainings were born out of the…

POSTURAL RESTORATION

Upright, weight-bearing posture for humans requires coordination of multiple muscles.  We practice with these muscle as infants, from lying on our backs, bringing our feet to our mouths (abs), rolling (abdominal obliques), to rocking on hands and knees, sitting, and eventually standing.  We start in…

VESTIBULAR REHABILITATION THERAPY AT PT360

Have you noticed that your balance doesn’t seem as stable as it used to be? Do you sometimes feel dizzy when you turn your head quickly? Does rolling in bed cause the room to spin? These are all common symptoms of vestibular disorders and they can often be addressed with physical therapy.  Vestibular…
