Welcome to the February newsletter from Peak Physical Therapy.

Maybe it was those freakish wind storms mid month that made it feel like time was flying, but it seems like we blinked and it was the end of the month! 

We hope you are taking some time for yourself. And that includes exercise. This month's focus is on the concept of "exercise is medicine." In addition to the benefits outlined in the article, the exercise "dose" can play a part in your recovery.

Those of you who have been to the clinic may have heard us asking how many times you did an activity. Or have wondered why we say a specific number of repetitions. The dosage helps us determine what your level is and helps us figure out how to get you where you need to be. Just like a medical prescription might be changed as you recover from illness,  we do the same with exercise. We push the levels when you need to get stronger. At other times,  we might reduce the repetitions if your pain is not normal muscle soreness. 

Don't hesitate to reach out if you need help with YOUR exercise prescription. 


Exercise Is Medicine

Have you ever heard the phrase “exercise is the best medicine?” Regular exercise helps people remain limber, boosts physical health, enhances mental performance and resilience, and improves longevity. It also reduces the risk of certain age-related issues.

When you are not able to access a fitness center, it’s great to know that you can still exercise as much as you wish at home.

Cross country skiing

Cross country skiing is a fast-paced outdoor sport that provides a full-body workout. Although the risk of getting injured during this activity is relatively low, it can still happen.

Selecting the right equipment, stretching before skiing, and proper body positioning can help prevent unnecessary injuries such as muscle strain and overuse, knee sprains, or a dislocated shoulder.

Understanding Achilles Tendonitis

Achilles tendonitis is a common issue, especially for individuals who run regularly. This injury develops when tendons in the lower leg region near the ankle become inflamed.
