1. Use hot and cold therapy appropriately to reduce inflammation. After a good workout or a day of doing chores out in the yard, your muscles will likely feel sore. Apply ice directly to the area that hurts on and off for 20 minutes at a time during the first 24-72 hours after the pain develops. After that, consider soaking in hot water, such as taking a warm bath, to further soothe your muscles. 2. Don’t underestimate the power of resting! Your body relies on sleep just as much as your brain. You need to get plenty of sleep to keep your stress level at a minimum—and that includes your physical stress level. Aim to sleep between 7-9 hours every night. The more activity you engage in, the more sleep you need. 3. Keep your body in good shape with regular exercise. It may seem counter intuitive to cut down on pain by moving more, but exercise is a really good way to reduce aches and pains. When you exercise every day, you are able to train your muscles for more movement, and thereby reduce aches and pains. Keeping active, staying rested, and being smart with hot and cold therapy create a trifecta for healthy management of aches and pains, but they aren’t going to solve the bigger problems. When aches and pains start to grow severe, or chronic, then it is time to reach out to a professional for support. Physical therapy is the best way to reduce aches and pains because it takes into account a combination of active and passive strategies to help tackle the cause of your pain.

Everyonedevelops aches and pains from time to time. After a long day out in the sun, or after an afternoon of trying to keep up with household chores, sometimes the tasks that we expect of our bodies can get the best of us.

“They made my sessions fun!” “I had shoulder surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff. Iwas told itwould take6months toayear to heal. After surgery, I thought it was going to take longeras thehealingprocesswasveryslow. Iwas blessedwithagreat teamof therapists.Theirgoal from day one was to ensure I would be able to return to my job in construction. I really enjoyed spending time with Alfredo, Meghan, Becky, and the rest of the staff.They made my sessions fun and were good at letting me know when I was meeting or exceeding their expectations. They also letmeknowwhen Iwasn’t. I trulyappreciated that, as I know it was important to my recovery. Also, thanks to A’Lynn as she always greeted me with a smile and made you feel at ease. I truly want to thank all of you at ARI. You all did a great job and I would highly recommend you to anyone.” - R. Wagner Patient Success Spotlight

Whether it is a lingering ache in your back, feet that feel swollen and tired after a long day in your shoes, or a crick in your neck that just won’t go away, dealing with aches and pains can really take a toll on your overall feeling of wellbeing. If you stopped and asked around, you’d be amazed to see how many people are struggling with aches and pains, just like you. What may surprise you even more is how many people are coping with those pains without doing anything productive about it. How toDealwithAchesandPains.

There are a lot of different reasons as to why you may start feeling aches and pains. Muscle pain will occur whenever your muscles start to grow. To build more muscle mass, your muscles have to stretch, and lactic acid can pour into the lining of your muscles to cause a burning sensation. More movement will push that acid out, helping you to experience relief, and in time your muscles will develop increased elasticity, and the burning won’t be so severe. Build-up of tension from stress or overuse, and muscle pain from poor posture can also contribute to regular pain. A physical therapist can take a comprehensive assessment to help determine what may be the primary cause behind your aches and pains. Workingwithaphysical therapistcanhelpyoudevelopanew approach to managing your aches and pains. Your physical therapy program will likely take into account strategies like hydrotherapy, deep tissue massage, guided stretching and targeted movements to help you experience ongoing relief from regular discomfort.

• 1 1/2 cups diced onions • 2 cups sliced baby bella mushrooms • 2 tbsp cornstarch • 1/2 cup reduced-fat sour cream • 1/2 tsp House Seasoning, recipe follows • 1/2 tsp salt • 1 cup kosher salt

INGREDIENTS • Nonstick cooking spray • 5 cups sliced green beans • 4 1/4 cups low-sodium chicken broth • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs • 1 cup grated Parmesan • 1 tbsp plus • 2 tsp canola oil

• 1/4 cup garlic powder • 1/4 cup black pepper

DIRECTIONS Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 1 1/2-quart baking dish with nonstick spray.
