Now that we are more than half way through the NFL season, injuries are starting to take a toll on many fantasy football teams.
Welcome back for another month of weekly stretches! This month we are stretching our inner thighs, and the first week we will be performing the Side Angle Stretch. You will feel the stretch from your groin muscles to your inner knee muscles, as well as in the side of your body from your hip to your armpit.

As the month of October comes to a close, we celebrate the end of National Physical Therapy Month by reflecting on why we got into this great profession in the first place.
As all NBA fans know, the first major injury of the 2017-2018 season occurred to star guard of the Boston Celtics, Gordon Hayward. Gordon suffered an ankle fracture 5 minutes and 15 seconds into the start of the season.
We are officially halfway through the NFL season, so there isn’t a lot of time left for fantasy football players to turn around their season.
For the last week of October we will be performing a Partner Twist Stretch. This movement will stretch your outside hip muscles and also the lower back to mid back muscles.
This is Us has been quite the conversation generator in my clinic lately. Since Season 2 launched this fall on Tuesday nights, it is all patients want to talk about on Wednesdays! Last week’s episode, “Still There,” was the first time that our discussions of the show could actually correlate with physical therapy. Kevin Pearson (played by Justin Hartley) had arthroscopic surgery to take care of a meniscus injury. Based on his pre-operative conversation with the orthopedic surgeon, he probably had a meniscectomy, a procedure to remove the damaged part of the meniscus.
Athletico physical therapists are dedicated to not only helping patients reach their health and wellness goals, but also providing outstanding patient care that goes beyond assigning exercises.
There’s nothing quite like a good night’s sleep…and awakening to the promise of a new day! But these days, getting a good night’s sleep seems to be more elusive than ever.
The 2017 NFL season is nearing the halfway mark, which means many Fantasy Football players are focusing on improving their standings before the playoffs.
