At Stretch Physical Therapy, we’re constantly looking for new ways to reach out to our community and transform more lives than ever before through powerful alternatives to medications, injections, and surgery. For us, health and wellness aren’t just our business — they’re our mission. It’s our personal goal to lift as many people out of the throes of chronic pain and disease as possible. That’s why, this month, we’re excited to announce our upcoming free community Dine and Learn event, organized by physical therapy aide, wellness expert, and Stretch Physical Therapy founder Kim Nartker! On September 24 , we will gather with 20 lucky attendees over a free dinner to discuss everything you need to know to start your journey toward a life free of chronic pain and disease, without expensive, dangerous, or invasive interventions like surgery or pills.

A chore chart with clear responsibilities is a great place to start. Whether you have one child or eight, everyone is capable of pitching in. You can have all the organizational abilities in the world, but the best way to manage life’s madness isn’t by directing day-to-day tasks; it’s by managing stress. Instead of using these tools to control life, look at them as a way to free up time so you can decompress and enjoy the things you love.
