HEALTH & WELLNESS The Newsletter About Your Health And Caring For Your Body


There are a million and one tips that are passed down generation to generation about the key to a long and successful life. Some say the secret to a long and happy life is to focus on family; others say it all comes down to finding the right career. Whatever choices you make in your life, and whatever your values are, there are several fundamental truths that are almost always accurate: To stay healthy, you must stay active, and to stay happy, you must stay balanced. MENTAL AND PHYSICAL BALANCE Staying active and staying balanced in many ways go hand in hand. Staying active refers to the amount of activity that you engage in daily. This of course can refer to how much time you spend at the gym, but it can also refer to how many steps you take in a day, how often you find yourself running around the office, and how frequently you head out to the backyard to run around with your children or your dog. Balance in many ways works on the same principles. There are some activities that you do every day because you have to do them — work often falls into this category, as do household chores. But what about the activities that you simply love to do? What about the activities that you enjoy? Think about the last time that you sat down with a book that you loved and made yourself a cup of tea or coffee and really enjoyed the moment. Perhaps it isn’t reading that you wish you had more time for, but instead SERVICES/ THERAPIES : • Neck & Back Pain/Radiculopathy • Hip, Knee, Ankle & Foot Injuries • Elbow & Shoulder Rehabilitation

it is a garden that has grown weeds as it has been neglected. It could be a project at your home that you have looked forward to completing or an old car that you’ve wanted to fix up. There are special hobbies and interests that appeal to each of us, and spending time with those hobbies can help you live a more balanced life. Alongside with the task of becoming more mentally balanced with the things that you spend time with in your life is the challenge of becoming more physically balanced. There are certain markers that typically indicate trouble with maintaining balance, such as frequently tripping and falling or feeling dizzy when standing too long. But even if you are not having fundamental issues with your ability to stay balanced in this way, you may still have difficulty with whole-body balance. Yoga is a great form of exercise to use to improve your ability to balance, as yoga helps to strengthen core muscles and improve coordination. YOU CAN IMPROVE YOUR PHYSICAL BALANCE BY:

• Increasing muscle strength • Improving stamina

• Improving core strength • Practicing balancing techniques

It’s Never Too Late

In addition, taking steps to ensure that you are getting a full night of rest, that you are exercising regularly, and that you are eating a healthy diet are all strong components to ensuring you are well-balanced. Think about the percentage of time that you spend working during the week. For most people this number is well over 40 hours per week! Then consider how much time is spent driving to and from work and around town on errands, and then consider the time spent doing things you have to do at home, like the dishes or the laundry. Then really think about how much time you are spending doing the things that make you feel better — including those hobbies that you love, but also being active and engaging with the people you care about. Part of becoming a more balanced person means finding ways to spend your time more wisely and taking more time for yourself as needed. You don’t need to grow up as an athlete to enjoy exercise as an adult. There is no point

in your life where it is too late to start being more active than you currently are. There are plenty of ways to incorporate light activity into your lifestyle, such as: • Taking a walk in the evening with your family • Wearing a pedometer and trying to take more steps every day • Joining your local community center and using the pool to swim laps several times a week • Engaging in light weight training at home before work • Taking a yoga class These are just several examples of how you could incorporate more activity into your lifestyle without making many large changes to your way of life. If you feel that your physical health or an old injury is holding you back from being active, contact us. Working with a physical therapist can help you achieve improved balance and a healthy lifestyle.

“I had a wonderful experience with Restore Physical Therapy, and specifically Reed Hofmann as my therapist. After suffering a foot injury, Restore Physical Therapy was recommended both by my doctors and other physical therapists to help me regain balance and core strength. Reed proved to be inspiring as he meticulously evaluated my situation, designed a course of treatment, and coached me through that treatment - always patient to answer my questions, explain the progression of treatment, and work with me to accomplish full recovery. I’d also like to compliment the wonderful ladies at the reception area who helped me navigate the health insurance and medical referral processes.“ -Walter S, 5 Star Review “I had a wonderful experience with Restore Physical Therapy!” SEE A PHYSICAL THERAPIST FIRST! A physician prescription is not required to see a physical therapist. Before more aggressive treatments like prescription medications, injections, or surgery, physical therapy is a great choice. If you know someone that has neck, back, shoulder, or knee pain, please forward this message to them or have them contact us at (856) 396-8131.
