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…

TAKE CHARGE OF YOUR DAY WITH PT360

Like most of us devoted class participants and teachers, our classes are now being offered online.  We want to help you keep your body, mind, & spirit healthy and strong.  Our students feel the online classes are keeping them sane during these crazy times of social distancing.  Here at PT360, we have…

ALL ABOUT RUNNING SHOES

With the weather finally warming up, everyone is getting outside and running!  Hooray!  But unfortunately, injuries are common after a winter of limited activity.  How can we avoid these injuries?  In addition to following the recommendations from Nina's blog on knee pain with running (go read that too!),…

LYME & TICK BORNE ILLNESS PREVENTION AND EARLY TREATMENT

With the COVID-19 pandemic, the Governor’s Stay at Home order, and warmer weather, many people are taking long walks with their family and/or pets.  Unfortunately, this is the time of year when the deer ticks start becoming active and searching for their first, big blood meal.   Prevention is the best…

ANTERIOR KNEE PAIN WITH RUNNING: HOW CAN WE FIX THIS?

For many of us, springtime brings us opportunity to spend more time outdoors and if we’re so inclined, add more mileage to our walks and runs.  Especially now, in the midst of COVID-19, we are encouraged to exercise and be outdoors (six feet apart, of course) and some of us have more time to do such…

TOTAL BODY REHAB GOES VIRTUAL!

Did you know that only 20 percent of your blood flow moves through your muscles at rest?  Our bodies were not designed for modern life, i.e. sitting ALL day.  The current Stay Home, Stay Safe mandate, although necessary and socially responsible, will be most severe on our bodies (& minds…) as we are…

ATCs IN ACTION WITH COVID-19

Each March, the message we continually try to portray about Certified Athletic Trainer’s (ATCs) is that they are diverse health care professionals.  What makes them diverse is their training and background.  From emergency & acute care to rehabilitation of athletic injuries to managing the psychological…

REHAB ROUTINES FOR THOSE STUCK AT HOME

While…

REFLECTING ON FAILED RESOLUTIONS

January is without a doubt the busiest season for new habits, new exercise routines, and new experiences because of New Year’s Resolutions.  We all resolve to make a change in our lives and better ourselves on January 1, but how many of us make it to January 31 with those same habits and routines still…

MAINTAINING BALANCE IN 2020

I’m usually not one to make New Year’s resolutions.  As a pretty self-disciplined person, I tend to make smaller goals, do things in moderation, and have never felt the need to “start fresh” in the New Year.  I’ve come to realize, however, that such a life of moderation hasn’t necessarily forced me to…
