EastTennessee Wellness Chronicles
FROM THE DESK OF Dr. Smith
Here we are in the middle of summer, and Northeast Tennessee is a great place to be. Although it is hot here, we are much cooler than a lot of places in the U.S. We are “air conditioned by nature.” I trust everyone is enjoying the summer, spending time on vacation and with family and friends. We continue to stay busy at PTS, lots going on with our therapists, staff members, and students from across the country who come to Elizabethton to study with us. Currently we have two students from the University of Delaware as well as students from East Tennessee State University. Our staff continues to provide educational programs for physical therapists, physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants. We continue our work with Carter County Drug Prevention in tackling the opioid crisis in Carter County by providing an alternative to opioids for pain control.

With school right around the corner, you might be thinking about taking your kids out for a bit of fun before the school year starts. If you’re fresh out of ideas on what to do, here are a few activities for your family this month.
TAKE YOUR KIDS TO THE MOVIES
There were many great kids’movies released this summer that you and your children can see as a family. “Incredibles 2” came out on June 15, 14 years after the first “Incredibles”movie. This time, watch as the character Jack-Jack explores his many superpowers. Several other films were released just last month, such as “Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation,”where the Count and his family go on a cruise. “Teen Titans GO! To The Movies,” also came out and includes the teen heroes experiencing their very first movie. This month enjoy “Christopher Robin,”which will be released on Aug. 3, and the adventures of belovedWinnie the Pooh and his friends. While taking your kids to a family-friendly film is fun, it doesn’t have to be the sole reason to get out of the house. Before or after the movie, you can take them to a local park to enjoy the playground or a pool.
As always, should you
have questions regarding our practice or the services we provide, please do not hesitate to contact our office. –Danny
