Importance of Nutrition in Healing your body

Jennifer Broxterman, Msc, RD wrote an excellent article entitled “7 Lifestyle strategies to stay strong, healthy and independent longer”. I am providing some excerpts from that article here to highlight some simple nutrition and lifestyle changes that can dramatically improve quality of life.

Modern medicine can help us live longer, so what’s the point of eating the right foods and taking the right supplements? Well, we don’t want to just live longer. We want to live well! We want a quality of life that allows us to travel and enjoy our retirement, to run around our grandchildren without aches and pains and to generally enjoy life feeling good in our bodies, minds and hearts....

80% of Americans Experience Back Pain, But 100% of PTs Know How to Prevent It

Primacare Physical Therapy on back pain

Got back pain? You’re not alone. Eighty percent of Americans suffer from low back and neck
pain at some point in their lives. Let that sink in. With such great odds that you—or someone
close to you—will one day become a statistic, wouldn’t it make sense to arm yourself with

Primacare Physical Therapy

Recently we have seen a rise of diseases in children that in the past had only been seen in adults. Things like obesity, type 2 diabetes, and high blood pressure are being seen more frequently in children. One of the best ways to combat the rise of these diseases is to make sure that your kids are getting enough physical activity.

This is total activity time, so 1 hour, 2 30 minute sessions, or 4 sessions of 15 minutes each in a day would all satisfy this recommendation. Most of this activity should be at either...

Get help for your Wrist Fracture

A wrist fracture is a break in one of the bones near the wrist. In the United States, 1 out of every 10 broken bones diagnosed is a wrist fracture. Injury can occur as a result of a trauma, such as falling while playing sports or simply tripping when walking down a sidewalk.

Wrist fractures are also common in women after menopause, and frequently occur in the elderly population due to falls. A physical therapist can help individuals who have sustained a wrist fracture...

Physical Therapy vs Opioids

When to Choose Physical Therapy for Pain Management

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), sales of prescription opioids have quadrupled in the United States, even though "there has not been an overall change in the amount of pain that Americans report."

In response to a growing opioid epidemic, the CDC released opioid prescription guidelines in March 2016. The guidelines recognize that prescription opioids are appropriate in certain cases, including cancer treatment, palliative care, and end-of-life care, and also in certain acute care situations, if properly dosed.

But for other pain management, the CDC recommends nonopioid approaches...
