You are Worth the Time and Effort

The other day, a patient shared with me the number of years that she has suffered with her pain.

Motivation to Change

Motivation to Change

We often know the right thing to do but have trouble actually doing it. We understand how our bad habit is harming us or why a new, healthy habit would benefit us, but we still don’t feel motivated to change.

Things That Kill You Slowly

Things That Kill You Slowly

I distinctly remember when my 17 year old teenage son wanted to go to the movie theater with me: I knew it was a rare opportunity, so I didn’t want to miss it. The problem was, though, that we ended up watching a movie one wouldn’t want to watch even after the film goes toContinue Reading »

Start Doing the Best Exercises for Your Health

One of the questions I’ve been asked most frequently as a physical therapist is: “what exercises do I need to do?”. There are so many different kinds of exercises, from stretching, cardio, core, resistance, and balance, all the way through to breathing and everything in between.
