PT myths
October is National Physical Therapy Month! During the month of October we want to make people aware of what physical therapy is and how physical therapists help improve an individual’s mobility, function, and decrease pain. Physical therapy involves skilled healing and rehabilitation of the body through non-invasive treatment to improve one’s quality of life. Non-invasive treatment means showing a person how to move and exercise in a safe way which can help prevent the more invasive types of treatments like injections or surgery. This year the American Physical Therapy Association shares a great list of 7 myths about physical therapy. As a...
squats versus lunges
  Did you know the gluteus maximus muscle, or butt muscle, is the strongest muscle in your body? This muscle has the potential to be very strong and help stabilize our lower back, which makes it a very important muscle to be exercised properly.

With self-actualization and spiritual courage comes a quieting and shifting of desires. Do you have a childhood “survival story” that you hold onto for dear life? Having claimed your personal courage, now is the time to let go of that...
sandals bad for the feet
We all know that wearing sandals are comfortable, especially in summer time, but how good are they for our feet? Most sandals are very flat and have no support. This can be bad for our feet for several different reasons. People that suffer from plantar fasciitis should not be wearing sandals unless they have some type of arch support. Even with an arch support, sandals should not be worn for long distance walking. Unsupportive or flat sandals can even cause plantar fasciitis, which is a very painful condition on the bottom of the foot. Research has proven that our toes try...
