HEALTH & WELLNESS NEWSLETTER 2019
RELIEVE YOUR TENSION THIS HOLIDAY SEASON! The holiday season is upon us – and with the hustle and bustle of activity often comes the dreaded holiday aches and pains. This time of year can take a tough toll on one’s body, especially on the neck, shoulders, and back. Running around shopping for holiday gifts, standing in the kitchen cooking extravagant meals, and long car rides to visit loved ones are just a few of the many reasons why people tend to experience pain during the holiday season. With all this unusual activity that only comes around once a year, certain trigger points in your body can tense up, creating discomfort. Fortunately, at Marketplace Physical Therapy, we know a couple stretches you can do on your own to find relief – so you can get back to the holiday festivities! We want you to be able to enjoy all of your holiday activities. For more information, contact Marketplace Physical Therapy today!
