The Smith Clinic for Physical Therapy

Smith Clinic Family,

We are so grateful for your contact support of our clinic and staff. It is our greatest joy to serve you as you seek to live a life free of pain. Our goal is always to honor God as we humbly serve our community and treat others as we would want to be treated. This month we will be celebrating our 21st anniversary and reflecting on God's faithfulness to our family. We have thoroughly enjoyed our years treating the community that He has surrounded us with and look forward to many more years dedicated to your health.

"Because of Jesus, death is robbed of the fear it holds over us. There is no fear, there is no string. There is only love and life, in Jesus. But again, we find ourselves can this be? How can our greatest fear just be gone? It goes like this...

This is how God showed His love among us: He sent His one and only Son into the world that we might live through Him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. - 1 John 4:9-10

The fear, the grip, the punishment-gone- because of love. Perfect love casts out all fear.

Body Composition Test

Have you ever wondered what your body composition is before starting a workout plan or diet? Body fat, muscle mass, BMR, and weight are vital to understanding how your body will respond to the stimulus you provide, whether that be through exercise or nutrition. At the Smith Clinic, we have the ability to provide you with all the information you need through the InBody. This machine sends electrodes through your body, measuring each of your body's main compositional structures. The Inbody also keeps track of your progress as your body continues to change throughout your journey. Each Inbody visit costs $25 and lasts about five minutes. The machine is quick, easy, and the best way to track your bodily changes.

Physical Therapy Health Tip

Many of us spend a lot of time on the computer, for work or for fun. While doing so, we tend to slouch; the shoulders roll forward and the head tips forward. Over time, this can cause bad posture and can contribute to pain, tightness of pectoral (chest) muscles, weakness of neck and upper back muscles.

Try these exercises to help prevent problems. These should be performed every hour that you are at the computer.

1. Scapular Squeezes

Sit up straight and squeeze your shoulder blades together. Hold it for 5 seconds. Repeat 10 times.

2. Scapular Rolls

Roll your shoulders up, back, then down. Hold it for 5 seconds. Repeat 10 times.

3. Upper Trapezius Stretch

Look down towards one shoulder. A stretch should be felt in your neck. Hold it for 30 seconds. Repeat on other side. This stretch should be comfortable, not painful.

4. Chin Tucks

Pull your head straight back, keeping the eyes and jaw level. Do not stick your chin out when you return to resting position. Hold it for 5 seconds. Repeat 10 times.

5. Pectoral Stretch

Using a doorway, place your hands on the door frame at shoulder height. Also, keep your elbow

at shoulder height. Take a step forward with either leg and lean forward until you feel a stretch

across your chest. Hold it for 30 seconds. This stretch should be comfortable, not painful.

Low Carb Breakfast Skillet


1 Tbsp (16g) Olive Oil

12 oz Radishes, quartered

1 lb Ground Chicken (97/3)

2 Tbsp (24g) Brown Sugar

2 tsp Black Pepper

1 tsp Smoked Paprika

1/2 tsp Red Pepper Flakes

1 tsp Kosher Salt

1/2 tsp Rubbed Sage

1/4 tsp Allspice

1 C Milk

4 large Eggs

2 oz Shredded Cheddar

Directions: Preheat an oven to 400ºF and heat a large skillet over medium-high heat with olive oil. Add the quartered radishes and cook for 5-6 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the radishes begin to soften and turn golden. Push the radishes to one side of the pan and add the ground chicken. Press the chicken flat and brown both sides before mincing and fully cooking, about 5-6 minutes total. Add the brown sugar and spices to the cooked chicken, stirring everything together, before adding the milk. Continue cooking/stirring until the milk has reduced to a thicker sauce that leaves a trail when you drag a spatula across the bottom of the pan, about 4-5 minutes. Create 4 wells in the skillet before adding the eggs. Top with the cheddar and bake for 8-10 minutes depending on how you like your eggs.
