Welcome to the August newsletter from Peak Physical Therapy.

It looks like we will be getting some warm weather for the next little while and without the gale force winds we had last week! Make sure to stay hydrated, use sunscreen but most importantly- enjoy our short summer season!

In this month's newsletter we have some information on a painful elbow condition and compression fractures. Our activity feature this month is kickboxing: this is a widely popular sport and is great for strength and conditioning; we have a few pointers to help you stay injury free. And then- a couple of healthy, tasty recipes to try. 

Maybe sit back with a cool drink while you read this!
