Leaking Urine - It is not the norm!

Written by:  Ashley Wold, DPT, CAFS

I participated in a workout class and overheard two women talking to each other about leaking urine during the jumping jack warm up. They laughed, they leaked, and they laughed more. Sadly, this is not an uncommon topic. I hear women talking about “leaking” all the time:

“I'm six months postpartum and feeling like the new norm is leaking urine. I leak when laughing, coughing, jumping, and bending over to lift the baby.”

What's this dry needling I keep hearing about?

Written by: Dade Smith, DPT

“I had pain in my lower back. I came in and was told about dry needling, and I was a bit hesitant. It was explained in great detail and that was very reassuring. I was expecting pain, but when we started I didn’t feel anything. It was great! Afterward I was a bit tired, but after a few sessions I was energized and felt I had more energy and less pain. I have been recommending dry needling to everyone. It has honestly been a God send. Thanks!” - Mary M., LPPT dry needling patient

How to Run Your First 5K!

Written by: Shelli Stevenson PT, DPT

It is almost summertime and I can’t think of a better time to train for a 5K! What is holding you back? Fear? Embarrassment? Lack of motivation? Time?  If you can walk then you can start training today! Let’s map out a plan to complete a 5K in 2018!

A 5K is 3.1 miles and can take anywhere from 25 to 45 minutes. This is a very attainable distance and time for a first-time runner. You want to give yourself 8-12 weeks to train depending on your current fitness level.
