Physical Activity Improves Your Health

APTA’s New ChoosePT Public Service Announcement Delivers the Movement Message.

The spot, to be distributed nationwide, is a call to increase physical activity—and seek PTs to help improve and restore movement. “It’s time to move, and keep moving, America — wherever you are, however you can.” That’s one of the key messages in APTA’s new ChoosePT public service announcement, which was unveiled online today and will be released to TV and radio stations nationwide.

Physical inactivity is a national health crisis. COVID-19 didn’t help.

It’s time to move more, wherever you are, however you can.

Better health is within your reach. Regular physical activity is one of the best things you can do for your health.

Whatever barriers prevent you from enjoying the many critical health benefits of physical activity, our physical therapists will partner with you to get you moving.

Choose more movement. Choose better health. Choose physical therapy.

You don’t need a referral to see a physical therapist. Call (866) 883-9235 or contact one of our physical therapists to get an evaluation and treatment that’s specific to you.

Are you prepared to shovel more snow this year?

The Farmer’s Almanac reports that the winter of 2017-2018 may produce more snow that usual.  Are you prepared?

Here is a video showing the proper snow shoveling technique to minimize injury.  The most common injury is to the low back and it is due to lifting through the back and not using the legs.  In addition, minimize the twisting in the back, move your feet to position your body where you want the snow to go.

Have a Holiday season and Happy New Year!
