What Brings You to Physical Therapy Today?

When you kick off a new project at work, chances are you spend a fair amount of time setting
and reviewing goals. These goals help you—and those you’ll be working with—get a clear sense
of what you’re looking to achieve and begin to map out a plan of attack. Along with specific
goals, you also probably find it helpful to set some key milestones to ensure that you stay on
task and to prevent your motivation from waning.

These same principles apply when going to physical therapy for an injury. Communicating what
you hope to get out your therapy sessions can help your physical therapist to individualize...

Falls Risk Reduction and Promotion of Physical Fitness

Fall: An unexpected event in which the participants come to rest on the ground, floor, or lower level.

Falls are a major health concern among older adults. More than one third of older adults fall each year and fall rates increase with advancing age. Falls are the leading cause of injury deaths, the most common cause of non-fatal injuries, and the most common reason for hospital admission due to trauma in older adults. Every hour, there is one death and 183 emergency department visits for falls-related injuries among older adults. More than 95 of hip fractures are caused by falls.

Risk Factors for Falling
Research shows that a cumulative effect of multiple inter-...

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
preventive strategies and knowledge? Physical therapy is a good place to start.

By performing a thorough evaluation, a physical therapist can identify the muscular, postural
and skeletal limitations that could one day lead to an episode of back pain. As part of the
assessment, she will observe as you perform a series of exercises and then gather an account of
your daily...

How Much Physical Activity do Kids Need?

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.

The Department of Health and Human Services has developed guidelines recommending that youth ages 6-17 participate in 60 minutes or more of physical activity 7 days/ week. 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...
