Zionsville PT: Is Your Balance Setting You up for an Injury?

ZPT GaZette The Newsletter About Your Health And Caring For Your Body

February 2018

Dear ZPT family and friends, Happy New Year! I am excited to report that I was a “good grandma” over the Christmas holiday! I had fun with 15 month old, Finn, as he toddled around our home, showing me

As for work, we have a couple newbies to introduce you to: students for the semester who will be learning more about what we do here in Private Practice PhysicalTherapy.They are inspiring us to be on our toes and remember why we all got into this field; it’s great to have students! Please stop in sometime and meet them. More about them in our next newsletter. Don’t miss some important invitations in this month’s ZPT Gazette, as we are planning a full day of Past Patient appreciation on February 20th. We are calling it a “Heart Wellness/Love our Patients” event, and you will read more about it in our insert. Because February is Heart Health Awareness month, and has Valentine’s Day in the middle, we combined them to give you a unique opportunity to get tested and heart-healthy. The other invitations are for workshops coming up in February. As we take a look at the new year, I cannot help but appreciate the people who made 2017 such a great year for us here at ZPT! Thank you everyone, for who you are and for the trust and encouragement you gave us. We hope to have returned it to you and made your life better. I like this quote from Jack Canfield: “By taking the time to stop and appreciate who you are and what you’ve achieved – and perhaps learned through a few mistakes, stumbles and losses – you actually can enhance everything about you. Self-acknowledgement and appreciation are what give you the insights and awareness to move forward toward higher goals and accomplishments.” As far as 2018 goes, I would like to leave you with a blessing: May your mind be clear and capable of learning and growing, may your heart be open and loving, may your body be strong and able to withstand another year of knocks and surprises, and may your spirit be filled to overflowing with joy.

"I could barely walk into this facility 3 months ago. I was having so much pain in my leg from my sciatic nerve. In the “gym” people were talking, laughing and joking as I was filling out allmypaperworkand I thought“they’re not serious about what they’re doing”. I was so wrong: the PT’s and the PT techs eased me into gentle exercises and within the first month I was doing so much better!The manual massage was also awesome and as I got better, they gradually increased the intensity and difficulty of my exercise routine. They also helped me learn how to adapt those exercises to do at home. I have work to do, but Marissa and all the staff have been great teachers. I’m now one of those people laughing and joking in the gym!” - Donna A.


what cabinets he can open and which objects on the tables he could reach. Kent and I gave him a cute little toy guitar for Christmas, to get him started on the music path. In addition, my son, Aaron and his fiance’ Genevieve were here from Portland, Oregon/Vancouver, Washington, with Genevieve’s daughter, Avary, who has recently turned 4 years old. They gladly hiked Eagle Creek Park, discovered the Ornithology Center, and went to the Children’s Museum with me so that I could be a kid again. Refreshing! Avary is a delightful little sweetheart who already has a strong will and a curious mind. We loved spending time with family and realized all too late that we didn’t take enough photos. The weather toward the end of Christmas week was not conducive to driving so we missed some of our nieces and their families, but certainly enjoyed catching up with Nate and Jenn, Mom and Ed, and Kent’s family – daughter Sarah and son-in-law, Tony (aka Finn’s parents), Kent’s sister, brothers, and one of our nieces. Jessica stayed in Bozeman, Montana, to work through the holiday season at a successful restaurant that she manages now; mom and I sent her a “care package.” On December 16th, my son, Nate, graduated from Butler University with his MBA. Working full time and attending classes in the evenings, having hours of homework and projects on the weekends, AND sacrificing some fun time in order to have enlightening learning experiences, Nate has completed a wonderful accomplishment. This is one proud mama! He continues to work in the field of engineering, in sales. His wife, Jenn, teaches physiology to college students. They are proud parents of two great danes, and live in Fishers.

Gratefully, Elaine
