Megan Marion, OT and Shellee Ager, PT & Director of Rehab, rode 50 miles each.

The ride was the

annual Little Red Riding Hood Ride in Logan Utah. Our Rehab Team is looking forward to partnering with St. John’s Medical Center and the Huntsman Cancer Institute as we bring Oncology Rehab and LymphedemaManagement to our campus beginning in July. More to come on these exciting programs!

Newsletter Health &Wellness “4 Easy Stretches To Stay Healthy!”

Many common aches and pains stem from tight muscles and poor movement. We were made to move and today’s lifestyle of sitting in the car, at work and at home, means tighter muscles. In addition, as we age our connective and muscle tissues naturally become stiffer. Therefore, the older you get, the more important a daily stretching routine becomes.

The key to good health is to keep your body flexible. This helps your circulatory, respiratory, lymphatic, and musculoskeletal systems. When your tissues are flexible, normal blood and lymphatic fluids circulate the body easier, oxygenatingyour tissuesproperly.Thishelpsyou feel energized, relieves pain, and allows you to perform daily tasks without feeling tired.

A PLANK A DAY KEEPS THE DOCTOR AT BAY

A plank is a simple exercise that anyone can do to improve their core strength. This exercise helps you strengthen so many of your muscles, guiding them to work together. Your core muscles are vital to the health of your low back and spine. If you suffer from an achy back or neck, then try doing this exercise to feel better. How to do a plank (If you are unsure about doing this exercise, call us first) 1. Start by lying face down. You may want to put a pillow under your abdomen if it is uncomfortable to lie flat. 2. Bring your elbows underneath you, then gently rise up onto your elbows and knees, so that your abdomen is off the floor.

3. Keep your abdomen tucked gently in so that your body is straight without sagging. 4. Try to hold this for 30 seconds if you can. You may feel your muscles shake a little while doing this, which means they are working! 5. It is important to start off with small increments and build over the course of a week as you become stronger. 6. To advance the plank and make it more difficult, lift your knees off the ground, keeping your body straight. 7. Ideally, you should be able to hold this position for 2 minutes 8. You may have some soreness the next day as you are using muscles that have not been worked that way in a while.

For a healthy spine, keep doing your exercises and remember our physical therapists need to see you for a check-up. You see your dentist every 6 months to keep you teeth and gums healthy. Why not your PT? Your physical therapist is the mechanic for your whole body to keep your spine and extremities moving like they should. Detecting a problem early can lead to a simple treatment solution that can save you a lot of pain, and financial burden down the road. Call us today to speak with your therapist about your problem, before it becomes a PROBLEM. You see your doctor every year, your dentist twice a year, when was the last time you saw your physical therapist? Directions: 1. Make the Green Beans: Heat grill for direct grilling over medium-high heat. Toss beans with oil and place in grill basket. Grill 6 to 8 minutes or until beans are lightly browned and tender-crisp, stirring occasionally. 2. Meanwhile, make Orange-Shallot Dressing: In small bowl, whisk together orange juice, shallot, mustard, salt and pepper. While whisking, slowly drizzle in oil until all oil is incorporated. 3. Serve green beans drizzled sprinkled with almonds and cheese, and drizzled with Orange-Shallot Dressing.
