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.

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.

Our second week of partner stretching is an Assisted Side Angle Stretch. You will feel this stretch in the sides of your body, but it also has a slight twist that will stretch your back. Since this stretch mimics a side lunge, it will stretch your inner thighs too!
Have you been dealing with nagging pain or discomfort that has lingered a bit longer than you expected? Maybe not – perhaps you feel great, but you’ve noticed that your loved one has begun to decline in his or her functional ability. Have no fear; your physical therapist is here!
Here are a few reasons why you should #ChoosePT (physical therapy) as a first treatment option:
Many fantasy football players are looking to fill gaps in their rosters entering week five of the season. Not only have injuries left gaps in fantasy lineups, but so have bye weeks.
