North County Water & Sports Therapy Center October 2018


WHICH LANGUAGE SHOULD YOU LEARN? Did you know that 40 million Americans currently speak Spanish at home? The U.S. is the second-largest Spanish-speaking country in the world, and we border the largest, so learning this language is a great way for children to communicate with more people in their community, and they’ll be more hirable as adults. Bonus : It’s commonly considered one of the easiest languages for English speakers to learn. Mandarin is the most-spoken language on the planet, and China’s growth as an economic powerhouse has made this language even more useful around the world. German, Arabic, and Japanese speakers are also highly sought-after in the job market. Of course, you can always let your wanderlust or passions decide for you! Is your child obsessed with K-Pop? Have them learn Korean. Want to take them to Paris someday? Enroll in French classes. THE LANGUAGES OF THE WORLD ARE AT YOUR FINGERTIPS. Learning a new skill has never been easier! While there’s no substitute for a full- time class or moving to another country, there are countless ways to teach yourself a new language right at home, usually for free. YouTube tutorials, podcasts, and audiobooks let you rewind and listen to the lessons as many times as needed to master pronunciations. Can’t tear your child away from their cellphone? Download Duolingo, rated by as the best free language-learning app of 2018.

As the weather cools down, finding ways to spend quality time as a family

can become challenging. It’s too cold to camp or barbecue, and money may be tight with the holidays coming up. So why not turn learning a new skill into a bonding experience this fall? You can do it inside, it’s free, and it will open doors around the world for the rest of your children’s lives.

WHY LEARN A NEW LANGUAGE? Speaking multiple languages creates opportunities for your child. Being bilingual makes you more qualified for a variety of exciting careers and can improve your competitiveness in the job market. Knowing a second language can also allow you to travel with greater ease and become more culturally well- rounded. There are some studies that claim learning languages is even good for your health. Research shows that our language acquisition skills peak in childhood or adolescence, so starting young is the best way to become fluent. If your child is in school, they probably already know classmates who speak another language.


With North County Water & Sports

Did you know that October is National Physical Therapy Month? To celebrate, we are holding month-long games and hosting a special event. We hope you’ll join us in the festivities. Our first contest this year is therapist trivia. We have questions about each of our team members, designed to test your knowledge and familiarity with them. Those who score the highest will qualify for the chance to win a prize. Next up, we have our baby picture contest. On a wall in the practice, you’ll find photos from the earliest days of the lives of our team. Your goal is to match each photo with the name of a staff member. Those who correctly guess all of the photos will be entered into a drawing.

If you aren’t around the office this month, you can still participate through our social media pages. Check them out for more details!

Finally, we’ll be hosting a back pain and sciatica workshop on Oct. 18 from 6:30–7:30 p.m. At the workshop, we’ll discuss the biggest mistake those suffering from back pain make; the three most common causes of lower back pain; and the top three strategies to eliminate pain for good without surgery, injections, or medication. And the workshop is totally free. However, space is limited, so it’s a good idea to sign up as soon as possible. Simply call our office or visit to reserve your space.

Within our walls and in our pools, every month is physical therapy month, but that doesn’t mean we don’t like doing a little something extra for National PT Month. It’s a perfect opportunity to educate and have some fun with our wonderful patients. Think you can easily tell what we all looked like as toddlers? Well, stop on in and test your skills. Our board will be waiting. 2
