Helping you every step of the way


We at Peak Physical Therapy hope that you are enjoying the spring season!  This edition on our newsletter is focused on having fun outside

Enjoy the outdoors this spring

Summer is a wonderful time to enjoy the warm weather, spend time outdoors. In the summer, there is always an opportunity to get out for a short break or a long stretch. In this month’s Peak Physical Therapy newsletter, we will be discussing the advantage of spending time outdoors.

Body Benefits

Sunny, warm weather seems to inspire outdoor activity; no gym pass required! Throwing on some shoes and grabbing a bottle of water makes attaining the daily exercise requirement (30 minutes of exercise every day) less daunting.  Have a busy work day?  Make a daily appointment with yourself to take that walk at lunch.  Looking for something new?   Try hiking, swimming or biking!   These options are excellent, low-impact workouts.  If you are older than 50 or if you have an injury that may affect your ability to exercise, check with your Peak Physical Therapy therapist before starting any new exercise program to ensure the best results.

 See our stretching guide for exercise.

Hydration Helps!

If the weather is hot, be sure to drink lots of water along the way, wear light clothing and don’t forget the sunscreen.  Mid-day sun can be especially dehydrating, so be sure to drink more water during those hot times.  If you feel thirsty, you are already dehydrated!

Benefits for the mind

Did you know that natural light helps with our happiness, our ability to heal faster from injuries and decreases pain and stress overall?  Pretty amazing stuff!
