Ready For The Slopes?
For many people, the ski and boarding season has begun. It's still not too late to do some strength training to help keep you on the slopes. No gym? No equipment? No problem! We have put together some exercises that you can do at home with nothing other than your body weight and few simple things you have around the house. Give it a try, even if you don't plan on hitting the slopes, it's a pretty good workout. To see a quick video of the exercises click the image to the right.

Why Let Pain Win?
At Blue Hills Sports & Spine Rehabilitation, our philosophy has been "Why Let Pain Win?" since our very first day. We have always challenged our patients to "Change the way you think about pain and change your life.". Our entire treatment approach has always involved working with both the body and the mind and all the current literature related to the treatment of pain falls right in with the philosophy we have had all along. One of our therapists recently stumbled upon a great web page with some really good information about what pain really is and how to combat it, so we thought we would share it with you. Click on the image above to be taken to TameTheBeast.org to see a fantastic animated video that just might "Change The Way You Think About Pain". Please share it with anyone you know that struggles with chronic pain. Keep in mind that physical therapy helps.
There's No Business Like Snow Business!
With winter upon us, it's time time again in our area to do some snow removal. It's time to tune up the snow blower, put a little non-stick spray on those shovels and get out there and clear a path. Hopefully mother nature will be kind this year, but just in case she isn't here are some
helpful tips and
stretches for when you have to get out there. Hopefully you stay injury free, but if you get a strain or sprain battling the snow, come and see us quickly. PT early leads to faster recovery for sure!
