This month we are sharing some advice about how to decrease your risk of forearm problems and carpal tunnel syndrome. Click here to watch our expert advice and to view the exercises.


Breathe Easier

For some, breathing is a challenge. Polluted air can cause difficulty breathing, flare ups of allergies or asthma, and other lung problems. Here’s some quick tips for you to reduce the effects of poor air quality on your health.

  • Avoid outdoor activities in the afternoons on warm days, when the risk of air pollution is highest.
  • Avoid strenuous outdoor activities if the air is polluted.
  • Check your region’s air quality index - Click here. Orange and red mean it’s a bad air day, so people with lung problems should avoid the outdoors. Purple and maroon mean air pollution is extreme, and everyone should try to stay in an indoor environment with clean air.
  • Reduce pollutants in your home. Don’t let anyone smoke in your home.
  • Avoid burning candles, incense, or wood fires.
  • Run fans or open a window when cooking.
  • Use a vacuum with a HEPA filter instead of sweeping to avoid stirring up dust and allergens.

The Painful Shoulder: Guide to Relief

Shoulder exercises are as effective as shoulder surgery and injections, and are less expensive and unlikely to generate negative side effects.

To help guide your treatment and tailor a program to your needs, your physical therapist will discuss your shoulder pain with you and perform a thorough evaluation.

Depending on the findings, you may be prescribed different shoulder-strengthening and/ or mobility exercises, which may be combined with manual therapy.

Click here for a one page handout about physical therapist directed care and shoulder pain.


If you or someone you know is experiencing neck, back, shoulder, knee or arthritis pain, have them give us a call. Seeing a physical therapist first is a great choice.

To all of our patients, families, and friends - stay healthy and safe.

Thanks for reading.
