Are You A Dysfunctional Breather?

How Well Do You Breathe? Most people don't consider or think or about their breathing just because it happens naturally, which is good.  However, what happens is most people end up breathing incorrectly, whether it's from a trauma, injury, or just changes in postural habits.  Your breath has a tremendous effect on your health.  It can actually affect multiple areas of your life.  Proper breathing, results in greater oxygenation of your blood, improved HRV, which is heart rate variability. Think about your heart as an elastic band. And so the more elastic... and the more flexible it is, the better....

Win In The Grocery Store

Grocery Shopping Tips Do you ever feel overwhelmed at the grocery store? I do.  As a kid I remember going to the grocery store with my mom. Hanging onto or riding in the cart with my brother and sister. I am sure my mom questioned taking us all to the store at the same time but I don’t think she had a choice.  My dad worked during the day (as a police officer) and my mom was a “domestic engineer”...such is the life of a stay at home mom. Now I understand why my wife frequently leaves Charlee (my toddler)...

3 Tips To Improve Your Desk...

I hear these questions often. “How can I improve my posture?” Or “How can I improve my desk posture?” I’ve been hearing them even more frequently since COVID began. The workforce in the United States went from commuting to offices to suddenly working from home, so it's no surprise. The term “home office” should be taken with a grain of salt these days. I’ve treated patients that come in with back pain, neck pain, and shoulder pain. When I ask them what they use for a home office setup, the answers are astonishing! Who knew that a bean bag chair...

4 Tips For Getting Back Into...

After a strange summer that included social distancing, quarantining, and hoarding huge amounts of toilet paper, the last few months in school have taken some getting used to. A less active lifestyle probably included among the adjustments. With a new school year comes more physical engagement. Sports and extracurricular activities have begun, but since late winter, life for most has been far from active. Many people have been spending their days inactive, sedentary, and staring at screens.  Kids’ bodies are not immune to injury. There’s a misconception that they can return directly into intense physical activity without risking injury. Of course,...

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...

We’ve talked a lot about Kaizen and how you can use small actions to lead up to big & impactful changes. If you’re wanting to be more active during this time of mostly inactivity and sitting at home watching Tiger King on Netflix or spending 8 hours per day in your home office,  (By the way, I have only heard about the Tiger King and all I can say is that it sounds... interesting).  So, how do we add some activity to our lives? Let’s answer that question in this post. Reduce Sedentary Activities One way to improve your activity...
