ENGAGE YOUR KIDS ON THANKSGIVING WITH THESE GRATITUDE-THEMED GAMES Thanksgiving is an excellent time to teach

adding a rule where players have to draw something they’re grateful for. This will get your kids thinking beyond turkey and stuffing and give them an imaginative way to express their gratitude. Plus, who doesn’t love a good art contest? GUESS WHO? To play gratitude-themed Guess Who?, have each participant write down their name and something they’re thankful for on a slip of paper and put it in a bowl. Then, at the dinner

table, have each person draw a random slip and read what it says without saying the name while everyone else tries to guess who wrote it. While Pictionary may get your kids talking about what they are thankful for, Guess Who? will tune them into what others around them are thankful for too.

This will ensure you get a wide range of creative, thoughtful answers whenever the kids pick up a stick. These modified games are great for helping your kids realize how much they have to be thankful for. Use these to spend some fun, educational, quality time with your family this Thanksgiving.

FIND OUT IF LIGHTFORCE LASER THERAPY IS FOR YOU! TROUBLE GETTING RID OF THE DEEP-ROOTED PAIN?

At Campus Commons Physical Therapy, we do everything we can to make sure our patients don’t have to live with chronic pain. Sometimes, however, traditional exercise and stretching routines don’t work to root out deep pain embedded in the muscles and joints. If this sounds like you, LightForce Laser Therapy might be something worth looking into. Laser therapy is a noninvasive procedure that uses a patented laser- massage treatment head to drive stubborn pain out on a cellular level. It’s a revolutionary alternative for anyone who has failed to alleviate their pain any other way. Some patients feel results almost immediately, but most notice their pain decrease after three to five treatment sessions. If you’re still not convinced laser therapy is for you, here are a few other reasons it’s worth checking out. IT’S SAFE AND PAINLESS. Each laser therapy session lasts only around five to ten minutes, and, as a therapist runs the treatment head over the afflicted area, patients should

only feel a soothing warmth. No part of the treatment should ever cause pain or discomfort.

IT’S AN FDA CERTIFIED ALTERNATIVE TO SURGERY OR OPIOIDS. If traditional physical therapy doesn’t seem to be working for you, don’t turn to painkillers or surgery first. Laser therapy is far less invasive and costly than either of these methods. At the same time, the FDA has certified the LightForce Deep Tissue Therapy Laser as the safest noninvasive option for treating pain available on the market. If you’re interested in Deep Tissue Laser Therapy but you still have questions or concerns, don’t worry. Just give us a call at (916) 927-1333, or shoot us an email at info@campuscommonspt.com
