Neck Pain Treatments & Relief: Know...

Years ago, I was visiting my family in San Antonio and I noticed something peculiar about my dad. About every 30-45 minutes he was constantly moving his neck up and down, side to side and in circles.  I asked what he was doing and he said, “Oh, just stretching my neck.” I let this go on for a while but then started talking with him about why his neck felt tight and if he had any pain. He tried to brush it off like it was nothing but clearly it was bothering him.  The next day we went to grab...

Go to Bed! The Effects of...

In a previous post, I discussed the 4 stages of sleep and some tips I follow to get a good night's sleep.  In this post, I want to discuss some of the nasty side effects of not getting enough sleep.  But first: why do we even need sleep?  During the day, your body is focused on activities and getting things done. This changes when we sleep. The body gets to rest and the brain “cleans house.”  Scientists have discovered that a whole host of activities occur when the lights go out. The brain starts to sort out all of the...

Go to Bed! The Four Stages...

Recently I wrote about doing some exercises to stay active since the gyms are closed and we are staying home a lot more.  Several of you wrote back to say thanks for the tip and to tell me what you are doing to stay active. A common theme I heard from several of you was that you are using a Fitbit to track your activity.  Several years ago we went to Orlando for a physical therapy conference. I took the family along so we could also spend a few days at Disney World. I tracked my steps daily and frequently...

The Importance of Drinking Water: The...

We’ve all heard that you're supposed to drink 8 glasses of water a day. But do you know why? And is that really how much water you are supposed to drink? To answer these questions, let’s look at my Uncle Rocky for some insight. The Uncle Rocky Story Years ago, I remember going to my Uncle Rocky’s house. He always had a strange assortment of jokes and gags laying around his house.  One thing in particular was an old man's face hanging on his wall. The old man had a little red tie that you could pull on and then...

The Kaizen Method: Improve Your Process...

One of the most influential books that I read in 2019 was, “One Small Step Can Change Your Life” by Robert Maurer Ph.D. A good majority of the book talks about “Kaizen.” Kaizen is defined as using very small comfortable steps to improve a habit, a process, or product. Essentially, Kaizen encourages you to use very small moments to inspire new products and inventions.  Let’s look a bit deeper at what Kaizen is and how it can help you reach your goals. Why Kaizen? After reading Dr. Maurer’s book, I made Kaizen my word of the year for 2020 to...
