Corner Stone PT & Wellness Center Aug 2017

“Before PT, I was afraid to move my neck. Certain movements, like looking down, reaching up, and turning my neck, were certain to cause pain. After several months here, my neck feels strong, and I am not fearful of moving my neck. I know that I can turn and stretch much further than I could before PT. I will continue my exercises at home.”

“Dave and his entire staff are amazing! I started therapy

with pain, decreased range of motion, and decreased strength. After completion, I am back to normal and able to perform all activities. I highly recommend Cornerstone Physical Therapy!”

Are your kids already sweating exams this semester? Fear not! Combine these tips with a regular studying routine and they’ll be set for anything their teachers assign this year.

Chew On This

Not all classrooms allow gum, but those that do offer students a distinct advantage. According to Scientific American, chewing gum increases the flow of oxygen to the areas of your brain responsible for attention and memory. Your student can even coordinate gum flavors with each of their classes. Do they have a biolog y test coming up? Encourage your student to chew peppermint gum while they study and while they take the test. Their brain will associate the minty flavor with those plant cell organelles they studied for an hour the night before. Is your child trying to perfect an essay before a midnight deadline? Be sure they leave time to read their essay aloud! Tom Stafford, a psychologist who studies typos at the University of Sheffield, notes that when we reread our work, “we don’t catch every detail; we’re not like computers or NSA databases.” Your student doesn’t catch their typos because they don’t expect them. By reading their work aloud, your student can fix those typos as they come up. But why put in all the effort when they can let Google do it for them? They can simply copy and paste the essay into Google Translate and let it read the essay aloud. Hearing their work ring out in Google’s monotone speech will help them highlight and fix those mistakes. Is your child wasting all of their precious studying hours on social media? According to Common Sense Media’s 2015 national census survey, tweens and teens spend an average of six to nine hours on some form of media daily.
