Congrats To Sean Serpe Completing The 26.2MILE BROOKLYNMARATHON
Running the Brooklyn marathon on November 19th, 2017 was the greatest physical and athletic challenge of my life. But it was also one of the most fulfilling experiences of my life. Training was a key part to the success, which took close to six months and running over 400 miles. I developed a heel spur in the 1st mile of the race but continued running till the end! I knew that come Monday when I returned to work I would have the best physical therapist in the world to treat me.

and knee joints tighten, leading to a gradual loss of motion.This causes a lot of pressure to build up on
specific parts of the joints. When Your Motion is Lost
Dear Valued Client,
When you lose the movement of the hip, knee or ankle joints, your muscles have to take on the abnormal strain. This leads to common aches and pains experienced by millions of people. Many people feel that medication will help solve their hip, knee or leg pain. While medication can help to decrease inflammation and pain, it cannot address the root cause of the problem. Most pain in the hip, thigh, knee or leg comes from poor flexibility, strength or coordination. Treating Leg Pain Todetermine thesourceofyour legpainourphysical therapists examine your walking, squatting, joint movement, comparing the strength and mobility of the joints. A comprehensive treatment plan, including special hands on techniques, is made to achieve the fastest relief and the longest lasting results.

that 30% of adults have reported some form of knee, hip or ankle joint stiffness or pain in a 30 day period. The hip and knee joints are incredible marvels of the human body. At times they have to withstand up to 6 times your body weight in force. The knee joint is the second most complicated joint in the body and has to move in many directions including forward, backward, side to side and rotation.These different movements are called accessory motions and are needed for normal walking, running and bending. When you experience pain in the side of the hip, groin, thigh or knee, you may have difficulty with these accessory motions. Prolonged sitting, injuries, arthritis and disease can affect accessory motions. With every day use, tissues around the hip
DOES ARTHRITIS PAIN GRIND YOU DOWN? Millions of Americans suffer through arthritis pain every day, taking Ibuprofen and stronger medication to numb the pain and address the ongoing inflammation. The definition of arthritis is joint inflammation, however the term has acquired a wider meaning. Arthritis is now used as a generic term for osteoarthritis and other conditions that affect joints. The pattern, severity and location of arthritis symptoms can vary depending on the specific form of the disease.
Typically, arthritic conditions are characterized by pain and stiffness in and around one or more joints. The symptoms can develop gradually or suddenly. Certain rheumatic conditions can also involve the immune system and various internal organs of the body. Physical therapy is an important part of the ongoing treatment for arthritis. Physical therapy strengthens, stretches and stabilizes muscles surrounding affected joints providing needed support. Relieving Joint Pain Exercising is important to help reduce joint pain and stiffness. Light to moderate-intensity physical activity can actually prevent a decline in function, even restoring health. However, some people with arthritis may be reluctant to exercise because of joint pain after activity. You can take various steps to relieve pain, such as heat and cold therapy, or pain relievers, making it easier for you to exercise and stay active. In addition to physical therapy, choose non–impact exercises such as
bicycling, swimming or water exercise. Furthermore, research shows that even modest weight loss combined with exercise is more effective in decreasing pain and restoring function than either weight loss or exercise alone. If you are suffering with arthritis pain, call us todey and discover how we can relieve your pain, returning you to a more active, pain-free lifestyle!
Oven-Roasted Root Vegetables Total: 1 hr 5 min Prep: 20 min Cook: 45 min Yield: 4 servings (8 cups) Level: Easy Ingredients • 1 large butternut squash, halved • 3 large Yukon gold potatoes • 1 bunch medium beets, tops trimmed • 1 medium red onion • 2 large parsnips (about 8 ounces) • 1 head garlic, cloves • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt • Freshly ground black pepper Directions Place 2 baking sheets in the oven and preheat to 425 degrees F. Cut all the vegetables into 1 1/2- inch pieces. Cut the onions through the base core to keep some of the layers in chunky pieces. Toss all the vegetables with garlic, olive oil and salt in large bowl. Season generously with pepper. Carefully remove the heated baking sheets from the oven, brush or drizzle with olive oil. Divide the vegetables evenly between the 2 pans, spreading them out to assure they don’t steam while roasting. Roast the vegetables until tender and golden brown, stirring occasionally, about 45 minutes to 1 hour. Cook’s Note: Some very large parsnips have a pithy core, which should be trimmed before cooking.
