Autumn is officially here and it is one of the best times of the year to be active outdoors.
Not only are the temperatures more comfortable this time of year – making it more enjoyable to exercise outside – but there are also many autumn-specific activities that you can take advantage of to get your body up and moving. Plus, staying active is a good habit to form before the holiday season arrives, as your home is likely to be full of delicious (but not-so-healthy) food in November and December.
Fantasy Football players are entering week five of the season, and many team owners are trying to fill gaps in their rosters caused by injuries and bye weeks.
The Month of October is all about partner stretching! Stretching is more fun when done with someone, so grab a friend and get ready to do the Wide Legged Straddle.
Every October we celebrate National Physical Therapy Month as a way to recognize the industry and the positive impact physical therapy has on people’s lives.
We reached out to Athletico’s Founder and President Mark Kaufman to get some insight into the physical therapy industry, including how it has changed since Athletico was founded and where it is heading in the next five years. Discover Mark’s insights by checking out the Q&A below:

Week four of the NFL season is already here. At this point of the season, Fantasy Football players are either trying to turn their subpar record around, or trying to maintain dominance in their league.
Regardless of the category your team falls into, it’s imperative to pay attention to the injuries that are putting starters on the bench and backups on the field. To help you keep up with the league’s most notable injuries, we are highlighting tips from Athletico’s Athletic Trainer Jacob Dailey each week throughout the NFL season. These tips, called the Athletico Fantasy Football Injury Report, are put together to help Fantasy Football players adjust their lineups.
In the last week of September we will be performing a combination of movements from week 2 and week 3 of this month, so make sure you go back and check them out!
One of the more frequent questions I am asked when conducting physical therapy evaluations is “Did my injury occur because I did not stretch before my physical activity?” That’s a great question and the quick answer is no…..and yes. Let me explain.
After the resume, a cover letter is the next most important career document.
A well-crafted cover letter will tell your story. Ideally it will describe your key skills, accomplishments and showcase why you are the ideal person for the job. This might sound like a daunting task, but with some key information and a basic outline, you will be able to add an awesome cover letter to any job application.
It’s not uncommon for runners, cyclists and triathletes to have calluses, lost toe nails, pain behind the heel, bunions, and other aches and pains. Feet absorb so much force and can either make these activities comfortable or miserable.
Fortunately, there are some things that can be done to help keep active feet pain-free, including exercises. That said, prior to beginning any exercise program, it is recommended to consult with your physician, physical or occupational therapist to determine which exercises are best for you.
