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

December 2017

Dear ZPT family and friends, Ho! Ho! Ho! Happy Holidays! Where does the time go? It seems like we just began our fall season and now we are preparing for the year- end, the holidays and get-

So I have written ten suggestions for you: easy steps to give you more energy, more movement, and less pain, especially in the winter months. See the article in this newsletter. I would love to hear from you to find out how these suggestions have worked for you. Don’t miss out! Choose 2 or 3 steps to start TODAY! A new habit usually takes about 21 days to “take hold” into your body and mind. Repeat your new step EVERY DAY for the next 3 WEEKS and enjoy a GREAT HEAD START into a happy and HEALTHY new year! Wishing you the blessings of peace, joy, good health, and love. p.s. I love the Book of Luke, and in Chapter 2 we find the story of our Savior, as researched and written by a Greek doctor by the name of Luke, a letter to people everywhere. The angel said to the shepherds, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. Today in the town of David, a Savior has been born to you; He is Christ the Lord. This will be a sign to you: you will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.” Luke 2: 10-12. Gratefully, Elaine

togethers! My husband, Kent, and I are looking forward to Christmas with our families, seeing our adult children and their spouses, children, and fiancé, and hearing about their lives and plans. My mom and I love to plan and prepare for them… mostly food, including traditional family meals and sweets. We are hoping to add some fun activities this year, as we will have two younger, little ones to play with and entertain. Yum! Fun! As the days grow shorter, the nights are darker and longer, I want share some observations about our behaviors. Less sunlight for some folks can result in some sadness and lethargy. It’s real. Others eat more to “boost their energy” resulting in weight gain and sluggishness if the chosen foods are unhealthy. Christmas parties and drinking alcohol… need I say more? We just don’t need the excess! This past year, I learned that my over-consumption of sugar (like a piece of pie, cake, or brownie) resulted in my lower back being stiffer and hurting more. Who knew?

Patient Success SPOTLIGHT Back to hitting and blocking in volleyball! "Once I had made the high school volleyball team, I practiced every day. This wore out my leg muscles, all the jumping! Eventually (it lead to) Achilles tendonitis, so painful I had to stop playing for a long time! Thankfully, we found ZPT, and the friendly staff helped me and reassured me that I would get better very soon. Now I am very confident during volleyball, and I can get back to hitting and blocking, thanks to the therapists at ZPT.” - Jade F. Up and down stairs easier! "It has been outstanding coming here for my physical therapy. The help I got was out of this world…with ZPT help I can now put on my blue jeans while standing up, and I am able to go up and down the stairs a lot easier." - Sonny R.
