The Pittman CONNECTION The Newsletter About Your Health And Caring For Your Body I hate silence

Recently, I went to Orlando, FL to link up with some other like-minded physical therapists for an annual conference. The weather was great and I was even able to play a round of golf with a couple of friends. The experience was tremendous... My golf game.... not so much, but that’s okay! After golf, we decided to get some pizza and wings. I know, I know... pizza and wings are not the healthiest things in the world. That’s okay because, Hope, my wife is not a huge fan of pizza so I always try to get my pizza fix in whenever I can! As we approached the car, I reached into my pocket....nothing. That is when I discovered that I locked the keys in the car. Woof! I Hate It When I Lock The Keys In the Car!! As panic sank in, I gathered up some material in the parking lot to act as a wedge and grabbed a small branch from a tree to use as a poker. Obviously, that didn’t work, so we did the next best thing and called in a professional locksmith. Avi soon arrived and in a matter of seconds, he was able to use what looked like a blood pressure cuff to ajar the door... He was speaking my language! After 90 seconds the door was unlocked. Not too shabby... $75 for 90 seconds of work. I’m in the wrong business I thought. I proceeded to shake Avi’s hand and thank him for his help! What he did next was genius. He replied, “If you want to thank me, please leave a 5-Star Review on our business page “IBS LockSmith”.”

Well alrighty then! I took out my phone... Looked up his business and saw 234 5-star reviews for IBS Locksmith!

Incredible! I proceeded to leave Avi a 5-star review to reflect my appreciation, and then we were off to grab some food. On the way to the restaurant, I realized my business is not much different then Avi’s. A service-based business who relies heavily on customers’ “word of mouth” referrals. So here goes... If you’ve had a good experience recently at our clinic, please break the silence, take a couple of minutes, and leave us a review! I would truly appreciate your input! I’ve provided the link to google below. Thank you so much for your help! To leave a google review. Google search us or go here: http://bit.ly/Pittman5Star With warm regards, Jeremy P.S. By the way... pizza was delicious! P.P.S. If you don’t have a Google or G-mail account and would like to leave a review on our facebook page, let me know and I’ll send you a link to that page. Just email me or call the office!!

“ If You Are Age 65 & Older, This Is What You Need To Know About Balance!” How’s Your Balance?

Can you close your eyes and stand steady on one leg for 10 seconds? If not, then your balance is not up to par. Your ability to balance is an incredibly complex action that requires millions of nerves and hundreds of muscles to work together to stop you from falling onto your face. Many people think having poor balance happens in just older people. However, poor balance is one of the leading causes for sports injuries, chronic back pain and much more. Having poor balance often goes undetected until it is very severe and puts one at exceptional risk for injury. It is even worse for older adults, especially over age 65, of which one third fall each year. People who experience a fall are at increased risk for future falls too.

Major injuries, including fractures, head trauma, and soft tissue injuries, occur in about 10% of individual falls. However, minor injuries are much more common.

Fear can develop of going up steps or curbs, walking on grass or walking into dark areas.

Patient Success Spotlights

“Thank God for Pittman Physical Therapy”

“My experience at Pittman Physical Therapy has been very beneficial and enjoyable.” “My experience at Pittman Physical Therapy has been very beneficial and enjoyable. The staff is very friendly, yet professional and do their best to keep you comfortable while helping you heal and be capable of regaining full function. Brad, Jeff, and Krista are great! The atmosphere is friendly and fun and makes you feel you are all important to them!” – Lynette Mulert

“Choosing Pittman Physical Therapy for the pain I was having was a great choice. I would say, most of the time people who spend time with you would help you with your pain, but at Pittman they were also friendly and nice. All the way from the front to the back – Pittman is the place to go. I went because I was having hip pain and I was having trouble at night with it hurting. I would have to turn over in bed about every hour and when I would get up I had to hold onto something to get to the bathroom. Then I had trouble picking things up, so before I left they worked on my back. I can tell you they helped me and they take their time in finding out about your pain. I am so thankful for Jeff at Pittman’s. Everything I worked with was for the good of my problem. Thank God for Pittman Physical Therapy!” – Latham Do More, Feel Better & Save Money This Holiday Season!
