Peak's 20th Anniversary!    

 What an exciting month!  And we at Peak Physical Therapy are excited to celebrate with YOU!

Peak Physical Therapy is proud to support National Physiothearpy Month.  

This is the time to get the word out about physiotherapy! 

Physiotherapy is not only for athletes or people with knee replacements.... and you do not need a doctor's referral!  Peak is hoping to spread the word of "Yes!  We treat that" and "Yes! We can help YOU!".

As well, we are celebrating our 20th Anniversary!  We want to
thank all of our past, present and future patients...we would not have reached this milestone without YOU!  

In this month's special edition newsletter, we have added in "20 Health Tips for 20 Great Years".  

As well, we will be having celebratory snacks in clinic, special "thank-you" gifts for our patients, and more surprises!

Peak Wants YOU! 

Want to help us celebrate?!  Have you had a great experience
with Peak?

Your story could be put up on our "Wall of Fame", so that other patient's can gain inspiration from your experience!

20 Health Tips for 20 Years!

We have made a list of some of the most commonly asked questions and answered them for you!  Here are the first 10 of our 20 Tips, see if you can find out something new!

1. Don’t ignore the “it’s just a....” injury.  A slight sprain or strain to a joint
 could come back to haunt you.  Be sure to have it assessed by a physiotherapist to ensure that any problem is solved.

2. There are many benefits to weight lifting or resistance training: it builds muscle, strengthens bones, boosts metabolism, speeds weight loss and more.  Be sure to talk to your physiotherapist to find out how to start! 

3. Potassium is essential to our systems. It helps to regulate blood pressure and bone mass. Foods such as kiwi, apricots, tuna and leafy greens are rich in Potassium so try including these options in your diet.

4. Good Posture can help to reduce back pain so pay attention to your posture.  Try to sit up or stand up straight.  Your physiotherapist can help show you how to use your inner muscles to allow you to stand tall with ease!

5. To avoid injuries, warm up and cool down before and after any activity.  Your physiotherapist can design you a stretching/warm up program, personalized for you and your activities. 

6. Kink in your neck?  Have your physiotherapist assess it!  A neck kink indicates an unhappy joint in your neck and can lead to bigger problems if ignored.

7. Try an energizing  breakfast: add fresh fruits to your cereal, granola or oatmeal!   Fresh fruits will give you plenty of energy for your morning, and provide lots of fiber for a healthy digestive system.

8. Have a lunch or coffee break at work or school?  Use it to take a walk. Small amounts of exercise adds up, and it’s a great way to relieve stress and clear your mind!

9. Are you doing a lot of over head work?  If so, take breaks!  Our shoulders are vulnerable to injury when we work overhead.  Pace yourself and avoid working into pain or fatigue.

10. Try meditation for stress relief and relaxation at the start or end of the day.  Try sitting in a quiet place with no distractions for a few minutes, close your eyes and focus on your breath.  This will help clear your mind and reduce your stress.
