PUT A 'SPRING' BACK IN YOUR STEP BY LISTENING TO YOUR BODY AND FIGHTING BAD HABITS

We offer so much more than “basic” physical therapy services because we’re dedicated to helping people live pain-free and physically fulfilling lives. Sometimes, that involves a lot of hard work through therapy. Other times, it means providing a little education and some quick reminders. This spring, focus on making the right choices for you by also being aware of any bad habits. Here are just a few that are often overlooked but can lead to serious conditions.

Listen to your body, give it the care it needs, and address bad habits. Spring can be off to a great start! Take it from one of our patients: “My left shoulder was hurting so much that I couldn’t carry a coffee cup. Physical therapy was difficult, but it paid off. Every visit, I had continued success. It’s amazing how much therapy has helped. Within weeks, I’ve become stronger, more conscious of my posture, and the pain is gone. I have strength back in my shoulder, and I’m feeling great. Life is good.”
