Skiing and Snowboarding movements are tough to replicate in the gym. Many people choose to try to ski themselves into shape every season. Although this can work for some it is not without risk. There is no need to increase your risk for injury or have your fitness limit your fun at the mountain. Wintervention is in full swing for another month. Spots are still available for our classes. They run from 6-7pm on Tuesday and Thurday nights and MWF mornings from 6:30-7:30 AM. Wintervention is in its 10th year @physiopro . That equates to a 10 year cache dry-land exercise progressions and ski fitness fun! Let us show you how to make sure your fitness program matches the demands of the mountain. ⁣⁣

Your workout can keep you functional if you make the right choices, and it can make you dysfunctional if you make the wrong choices. ⁣
⁣⁣
⁣Quite often we hear clients say something along the lines of: “I thought I was doing the right exercises” or “I was doing the PT exercises I was given in the past”. Unfortunately, they are often not gaining the desired benefits despite their efforts. After a comprehensive evaluation, we are able to design an effective treatment plan.⁣
⁣⁣
⁣At #physiopro we will ensure that your efforts yield a big return on investment.⁣

The single leg squat is an excellent exercise to address gluteus medius (“hip”) muscle weakness. Weakness in this and other nearby muscles has been shown to increase incidence of all sorts of knee injuries, including ACL tears and patellofemoral syndrome. This photo shows A)correct performance with even trunk and knee aligned with the hip and ankle B) incorrect with trunk lean to right. C)incorrect with trunk lean to left. D) incorrect with knee dropping to the inside (also called “valgus collapse”). Using a mirror can help you perfect your technique. Crossley et al.

A friendly reminder to drink plenty of water throughout the day to stay hydrated and healthy! This is even more critical if you plan on exercising or being active. Water is the medium in which all energy reactions take place. From a musculosketetal standpoint, It is essential for stamina, burning fuel, and building muscle ⁣
⁣⁣
⁣Water is the most critical nutrient for muscular growth, and development. It is essential for muscle and nerve function as it is the medium that allows for the exchange of electrolyte minerals at the neuromuscular junction. Without enough water, your muscles are not getting enough electrolytes and can’t fire optimally. Studies have also shown that dehydration while working out can amplify exercise induced DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness).⁣
⁣⁣
⁣Water is also the primary component of the lubricating synovial fluid in all our joints. If you are lacking in water, less synovial fluid is available to protect these areas. As you add more stress to your body with working out, the demands on the joints will increase. Adequate protective fluid is essential for optimum performance and to give longer life to your joints.⁣
⁣⁣
⁣Make sure to get 64 OUNCES A DAY regardless of your activities. ⁣
⁣⁣
⁣IF YOU ARE AN ATHLETE:⁣
⁣⁣
⁣2 to 3 hours before your game or practice : 16 ounces (about 1 water bottle) ⁣
⁣15 minutes before: 8 ounces⁣
⁣4 ounces of fluid every 15 to 20 minutes (2 to 3 large gulps)⁣
⁣16 to 20 ounces of fluid for every pound lost (1 to 11⁄2 water bottles per pound lost)⁣

sees lots of scars! This will be a 2-part post regarding the management of scars following surgery. More to come!⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣PART 1: INFLAMMATORY/PROLIFERATION STAGE⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣Following surgery or trauma, one of the first priorities should always be the prevention of abnormal scar tissue formation.⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣The major components of preventing excessive scar tissue are tension relief, hydration, occlusion, and compression. These principles should be applied immediately after wound closure.⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣Staples, sutures and glue have been long utilized for wound closure for years and are physician dependent. Surgeons all have their preferred methods for wound closure. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣A new wound closure device is available through @ziplinemedical. The Zip is a non-invasive and easy to use wound closure device that replaces sutures, staples and glue. It is used for skin closure after the deeper suture layers are applied. The “Railroad” marks marks that are common with staples or sutures are eliminated with this device.⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣We have a couple of current patients with this new innovation and so far things are looking great!⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣For the first 1-3 weeks after wound closure the scar is in the inflammatory/proliferation phase. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣In these first few days/weeks the wound should be covered with dry dressings and inspected twice a day for drainage, excessive bleeding and signs of infection. (unless your doctor uses an occlusive dressing) ⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣The sterile bandages protect the incision from bacteria, absorb and exudate from the wound and keeps it clean and dry. Dressings should be changed daily or according to your doctor’s orders. Do not wash the wound directly or scrub or massage the incision. The wound should never be submerged or bathed directly during this initial phase until it is completely closed or you have had your first follow up visit with your doctor. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣Our next scar post will start at suture removal and the beginning of the remodeling stage around week 3 post-op.⁣⁣

is always moving! Dynamic warm ups involve a combination of movements that allow you to stretch and warm up at the same time-essentially moving the body while you stretch. Dynamic stretches are active movements where joints and muscles go through a full range of motion. They can be used to help warm up your body before exercising. Dynamic warm ups and stretches can be functional and mimic the movement of the activity or sport you’re about to perform. At Physio Pro we use Dynamic warm up and stretching for our rehab population-young and old, as well as our performance and return to sport population. It is a great way to start your workout as well as test your balance-give it a go! @nancyharris184 #physiopro #physiofamily #dynamicstretching #dynamicwarmups #dynamicwarmup #physicaltherapy #physiotherapy #sportsperformance #sportsperformancetraining #injuryprevention ...

in action !!! Per Daniel R.’s own words: “Why don’t we do it in the road”……….After successfully finding the right movement for his back, and teaching him the right form, Daniel was able to complete a multi-day bicycle trip in Utah virtually pain free! A classic example of being in control of your back instead of your back controlling you. Our ultimate goal: We teach you what YOU can do for your spine so that you don’t need us anymore!! Thanks to Daniel for being such a motived and compliant patient. We love to see our Physiopeople in their element!!!!⁣⁣

wants to know if you want control of your low back or neck pain?⁣
⁣⁣
⁣All too often people give up their favorite activities out of fear of (re-)injuring their neck or back. A mechanical assessment of your spine at Physio Pro can usually determine what your spine needs, and what YOU can do to improve your spine health.⁣
⁣⁣
⁣INSTEAD OF YOUR SPINE CONTROLLING YOU, we want YOU to be in control of your spine!⁣
⁣⁣
⁣Save time and money by calling us at 303-370-2670 to schedule an assessment of your spine so we can show you how to take control! ⁣
