We first encountered the TRX system in a gym class. Following class we immediately purchased one as we saw the benefit for our clients looking to get fit at home and our VIP PT clients working on rehabilitation. 

This system is a great way to get body weight based exercises in at home with minimal space. 

Click here for sample exercises one can perform using the TRX.

To learn more about the TRX or to purchase one for yourself click the image below.

Dealing with chronic low back pain?

A recent study in the Journal of Physical Therapy found that 12 sessions of modified pilates based physical therapy exercises over a 6 week time frame resulted in less back pain and less disability.
The study also found that working one on one with a therapist was more beneficial than receiving a pamphlet and 'doing it yourself'.
To get yourself out of pain, contact us for one of one care. VIP PT

Have neck pain?

You are not alone, more than 10% of the adult population has neck pain at any given time. Many people have neck pain that is related to poor posture, especially when sitting in front of a computer. To learn how to correct your posture and avoid the neck and shoulder pain that is associated, check out our “one minute to wellness video

 

If you still have neck pain after correcting your posture here are some things to know.

1. Do not jump to use a collar for support.  Multiple studies have shown that routine use may actually delay improvement. Findings have pointed to a significant improvement in movement and decreased pain in groups not wearing collars versus those that did.
2. Physical Therapy is a key component to the treatment and prevention of recurring neck pain. These finding are significant for the short and long term. If you are in the need of a physical therapy consult, see our VIP PT program. One technique that therapists use is soft tissue mobilization. A way to perform this at home is using a Theracane. A Theracane can be used to perform a self massage to those hard to reach places without placing undo strain and while sitting at your desk. Click the link below to learn more about them and to order your own.
