January 2014 Newsletter

Happy New Year Everyone! Hope you had a fantastic holiday season and that 2014 is off to a great start!

We're excited to welcome our new physical therapist, Kelly Archidiacono. Kelly is a very talented physical therapist from Lexington, Massachusetts. She received her Bachelor's degree from University of Vermont and her Doctorate of Physical Therapy from Hunter College. Kelly will be a great addition to our team and we're glad to have her on board.

We have 4 things for you in this month's newsletter.

  1. More research showing the importance of fixing movement rather than fixing pathoanatomical structures. Common Knee Surgery May Help No More Than A Fake Operation.
  2. "It took a habit to make that pattern, and it's going to take a habit to break that pattern." - Gray Cook
  3. A clinical review from geriatricians at the University of Alabama at Birmingham suggests that mobility limitations are a litmus test for healthy aging. Try to get your movement and mobility screened by a professional at least once a year to help prevent injuries and promote a healthy lifestyle.
  4. Pete is not only a member, he's the president. Check out Pete's advanced post hip surgery strengthening program. Pete had his hip resurfaced a few years ago and has returned to full function with his program.
