April Market Perspective
The 1st quarter of 2021 saw volatility in the investment markets caused by two things we haven’t seen in quite a while – higher interest rates and the fear of higher inflation. Using the yield of the 10-year Treasury bond as the measure, this yield increased from 0.9269% on December 30, 2020 to 1.74% on March 31, 2021 – more than an 87% increase. While the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the S&P 500 performed well during the quarter, there was something quite dramatic happening below the surface.

You Are Not Your Imaging Study!
Ryan Hastie, PT, DPT, CSCS

Patients often present to outpatient physical therapy clinics with x-ray/MRI results in hand. Many are simply given their results, or their provider quickly goes over the results in a matter of minutes. Patients are often left confused, concerned and scared of the words they see in the results section of their imaging study.
