Back exercises you have to try from your local physical therapist


October 15, 2019

Stretching. It’s commonly associated with exercising, but did you know completing a few quick stretches every night could be the key to lessening your chance for injury? To help you get started, we’ve compiled four of our favorite back stretches - straight from some of our Wyoming physical therapy “playbooks.” 

Kneeling Lunge Stretch 
This one is not as hard as it might sound, and it’ll have you feeling amazing in no time. Get in a lunch position, with one knee bent at 90 degrees and the other resting on the ground. You’ll then need to lean forward into your lunge. Make sure you keep your back straight, with a good posture. You’ll most likely feel this in your hip flexor as well, but posture is essential for this one. Hold for 30 seconds and switch sides.

Back Flexion Stretch
Start laying on a flat surface, on your back. You will then bring your knees up to your chest, and pull them closely with your arms. While you are doing that, roll your chin up to your chest and hold for 30 seconds. Repeat as needed. 

Seated Toe-Touch 
Sit on the ground, with your legs straight out in front of you. Take a deep breath, and while breathing out reach forward with both arms and work to touch your toes. To feel this stretch in your back, you’ll need to keep your head down during the whole stretch. Hold for 30 seconds, repeat as needed.

Cat Pose
Yes, this is one of the more popular yoga poses but we assure you it’ll have your back feeling relaxed in no time. Get on the ground, on all fours as if you are a cat. Your knees should be on the ground, and your arms should be directly under your shoulders. Take a deep breath, and arch your back outward so that it forms a nice curve. Hold for 10 seconds, and slowly return to the starting point.

This is not all of the stretches in our playbook, but it certainly gives you an idea of how we like to prevent injuries. If you are experiencing body aches and pains, also be sure to reach out to your primary care physician or our team. At North Platte Physical Therapy, we are here to help meet your needs. We serve the communities of Wyoming and Nebraska with 22 clinics offering a full range of physical therapy services. Contact us today for more information.

Ways to prevent neck strain from your Wyoming/Nebraska physical therapist


October 9, 2019

Whew - no one likes a back neck strain. Neck strains can keep you from living a normal life every day, and can even make you uncomfortable. Sometimes neck strains can cause you to lay in bed each day you have issues, or it could even cause you to have to go to the doctor. The good news, is that while you can prevent every injury there are a few things you can do to stop yourself from getting injured ahead of time. We’ve compiled some of our favorite tips for preventing neck strain:

Sleeping
Neck strain/pain can be prevented simply by how you sleep - and this includes the type of pillow you are using. If you are already experiencing some light neck pain...try a new pillow. Sometimes a firmer, or even softer pillow, can help adjust your body. Somethings can be very difficult. Not only can the type of pillow you are using can make a difference, but the sleeping position itself can also make a difference. Try laying on your back if you can, sleeping on your side can cause undo stress. 

Technology
Technology can cause additional stress on your body - stress you might have not thought of. For example, if your computer is not at eye level...looking down or up can cause a lot of neck pain. What about texting? Are you spending all day texting? Looking down at your phone could cause unnecessary strain as well. Keep an eye out on where your eye sight is for each piece of technology.

Wellness
Wellness covers quite a few things, including physical fitness and nutrition Physical fitness is important to help prevent neck strains - and we aren’t talking about regularly working out (although we do recommend that). We are talking about stretching your neck muscles often. Healthy nutrition is also important, but be sure to drink plenty of water to keep your body healthy.

Have a neck strain? Be sure to contact us or your primary care physician for assistance. If you are experiencing body aches and pains, also be sure to reach out to your primary care physician or our team. At North Platte Physical Therapy, we are here to help meet your needs. We serve the communities of Wyoming and Nebraska with 22 clinics offering a full range of physical therapy services. Contact us today for more information.

Fall is in full swing - here’s how to stay fit from your Wyoming physical therapist


October 2, 2019

We are loving this fall weather! While we wish it was a little cooler - we can’t get enough of the changing colors and delicious football Sunday food. Unfortunately, cooler weather can make it a little difficult to get and stay in shape. We have compiled our XX tips (straight from your favorite Wyoming/Nebraska physical therapists) for you to start incorporating into your daily routine! 

Spend time outside
As long as it is not too cold, and inversely too hot, workout outside. The beautiful fall foliage will help you stay motivated and provide beautiful scenery for your run ahead. The cooler outdoor weather is also perfect to help keep you cool when running or exercising. 

Safety First
No matter what, safety is always first. Run during daylight hours, and if you decide to run in the early morning or later at night be sure to wear reflective clothing. This will help cars see you as they are making early morning/late night drives.

Layers
If it’s a little colder outside, be sure to layer up. A longer sleeve shirt, with a lighter sweatshirt will make removing the layers a little easier. If you are running and decide to remove the sweatshirt, you can easily tie it around your waist so you don’t have to worry about carrying it.

Working Out at Home 
Another easy thing to do? You can start working out at home. It keeps you from having to go outside as the weather gets colder, and it may make it even easier for you to fit in a workout! 

Regular Weigh-Ins
We know...the scale can be scary. But regularly weighing yourself can ensure that you are on track to meet your goals! Just remember though, fluctuating one or two pounds daily is completely normal. And so is bloating. If you feel that you might be a little extra bloated, make sure to have some lemon water and go on a walk. You’ll be shocked at what these little fixes can do.

Not everything works for everyone, but these are our favorite tips for staying healthy this fall. If you need additional assistance, reach out to your primary care physician. If you are experiencing body aches and pains, also be sure to reach out to your primary care physician or our team. At North Platte Physical Therapy, we are here to help meet your needs. We serve the communities of Wyoming and Nebraska with 22 clinics offering a full range of physical therapy services. Contact us today for more information.
