THE ROLE OF HELMETS IN PROTECTING THE BRAIN

Aug 28, 2020
During our last blog post, we learned the changes that occur within the brain on a cellular level following a concussion and how this affects healing. Today we’ll be discussing the different kinds of helmets…

CREATING NEW SUSTAINABLE LIFESTYLE HABITS

According to fitness and location apps, January is without a doubt the busiest time of the year for gym memberships, as it is inevitably “that time of the year again”.  The New Year is popular for resolutions pertaining to fitness or making the “best version of ourselves”.  If exercise and fitness are…

THE 12 STRESS MANAGEMENT STRATEGIES FOR THIS HOLIDAY SEASON

Although the holiday season is a time to be joyous and celebrate with those around us, often we  find ourselves overwhelmed by our busy schedules and long to-do lists.  Whether it’s running around doing some last minute gift shopping or planning for the in-laws, we all have those moments of letting stress…

HEALTH & STRESS MANAGEMENT - WINTER WALKING!

I recently gave myself a new title: walking ambassador.  It’s something I made up the other day while at the gym with a friend.  We were preaching to folks to get out and walk every day on Thanksgiving break.  Most people kind of sighed and rolled their eyes.  But we were being serious!  And I was surprised…

I WOULD DO IT ALL AGAIN - A PATIENT'S JOURNEY IN PHYSICAL THERAPY

I had been uncomfortable for about three years before I decided to have my hip replaced.  At first I only experienced a stiffness after a long bike ride or run but later, it became an ache and then a sharp pain when simply walking up a flight of stairs. At that point, I couldn’t sleep through the night…

A (KINDA) 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…

GET DRENCHED! - AN INTERVIEW WITH NINA DINAN, DPT

GROUP EXERCISE IS FUN…..REALLY FUN!

Growing up dancing, I was always in a class setting for movement.  I was comfortable exercising with other people and that led to teaching and participating in many forms of exercise to include yoga, aerobics, dance, and strengthening classes.  I also cherish time outdoors hiking, running, and walking,…
