IT’S TIME TO HIT THE SLOPES!

The winter is one of my favorite times of year for one big reason: It’s ski season! If you know me, you know how much I love to ski. This year, I have a few different ski trips planned. One is a trip to Colorado. I’ll be returning to Colorado for the first time in over 30 years to ski at the Breckenridge Ski Resort and the Vail Ski Resort. I’ve got a lot to look forward to! This year, I sprung for an Epic Pass. I mentioned this in a previous newsletter; the Epic Pass lets you ski at resorts around the country so you don’t have to keep paying fees. It’s just a one-time fee for all the skiing I can handle (hopefully, my knee will keep up!). It’s a good way to save money if you love to ski. Thankfully, I found inexpensive flights to Colorado, and I may even have accommodations taken care of! A patient very generously offered to share her condo, which she has in Breckenridge. If it all works out, I won’t be able to thank her enough! I’m also hoping to do some skiing in Whistler, British Columbia. That trip is still in the works, so we’ll see! I’m planning a weekend trip to Lake Tahoe, as well, but again, we’ll see. If I can get in three trips this winter, I will consider myself very lucky.

Breckenridge, Colorado. Paul can't wait to use his Epic pass!

about seeing a physical therapist for their pain. But when we work with doctors, we can ultimately help more people. It’s a win-win for everyone! I’m also looking forward to offering more workshops in the coming months. While I don’t have anything planned for this month, I have a few things in the works I’m excited to share with you, so keep an eye out for more information soon! In the meantime, I hope your year is off to a great start — and if you or a loved one starts experiencing any aches or pains this year, we’re here to help get you back on track (after all, spring is right around the corner, if you can believe it!).

with my sons. We haven’t had a chance to get together for a ski trip in quite some time, so that would be fun if we can manage. Two of my three sons are currently at home, so we might be able to make it work! Once I get skiing out of my system this winter, it’s full steam ahead at the clinic. I’m hoping to continue to grow. A new doctor recently joined a medical group near our clinic, and we’ve been getting to know them (general practitioners). It’s always good to know local doctors to see how we can help their patients. Often, when people experience aches or pains, their first instinct is to use over-the-counter pain medication. When that doesn’t work, then they see their family doctor or a general practitioner. They don’t always think

In the mix of it all, I’m hoping to get in some skiing and snowboarding
