JUNE 2020


As we do move into this more active season, it’s always important to keep in mind where your body is and to not expect to jump right back in where you left off last summer. If it’s been a while since you went for a run, then remember to take it slow at first. This can apply to activities like gardening and cleaning, too. As tempting as it might be to go all in, you don’t have to do everything at once, and it’s healthy to take breaks and let your body rest in between activities, especially when you’re getting back into your workout routine. Warming up before you exercise — even just a few minutes of jogging in place or 50 jumping jacks — and stretching before and after you exercise are two excellent ways to help your body stay injury-free.

Are you looking forward to summer as much as I am? Thoughts of going for a long run in the foothills, going on some camping and backpacking trips, or just soaking up our beautiful Idaho outdoors have been on my mind a lot lately. It’s been a great feeling to see some positive changes and see things start to open up a bit in our state. Mostly, I’ve been looking forward to seeing more of our patients. I’ve missed you! It’s been great to connect with people through Facebook and hear that you’re doing well and enjoying the workouts we’ve been sharing, but it’s not the same as seeing you in person. I’m sure you’ve felt the same way with friends and family you only got to see over video for a couple of months.

If it’s hot out, then always remember to drink enough water and take breaks. It takes time to build your muscles back up, and by easing into your favorite activities and taking the time to warm up and stretch, you’ll be doing your body a favor so you can enjoy your favorite activities all summer long. I’ve also gotten questions from folks about back and neck pain, something people may be experiencing as a result of more time sitting and being at home. If you’re experiencing any neck or back pain or other issues, then please give us a call. We can do an evaluation and find customized exercises to help you get back to living your life without pain. To help with some of the effects of everyone being inside for the past couple of months, we are hosting a free exam week the second week of June. Space will be limited, so call now to reserve your seat! I look forward to seeing you there. Don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions. We’re here for you!


It's time to start thinking about bouncing back to normal ... Wouldn’t it be great to go into summer activities without worrying about pain or injury? For weeks now, people have been stuck in their homes, unable to do much of anything. Many people we've talked to have been in pain and unable to do anything because of it. We feel for you! To help, we are hosting a week of completely FREE exams for any of our past patients and their friends and family. It's time to get back to some normality, and that includes living a pain-free life. We are limiting the spots (10 per clinic) and will not be treating regular patients at this time. To secure your spot, call your local clinic! Caldwell: (208) 454-9839

Have a great start to your summer,
