10 Exercises to do in the POOL

Pool (aquatic) exercise provides many benefits, including an ideal environment to exercise throughout the year. The buoyancy of the water supports a portion of your body weight making it easier to move in the water and improve your flexibility. The water also provides resistance to movements, which helps to strengthen muscles. Click here to read rest of article.
Mom Credits PT with Relieving Daughter's Jaw Pain

On July 15, 2018, 13-year-old Sophia from Boulder, Colorado, had jaw pain so severe she could not chew food and could barely talk. If you looked directly at her, it was clear that her jaw was shifted down and to the right. Sophia is an athlete, playing competitive hockey and swimming. Her mom figured she had gotten hurt during one of her sporting activities. She called PTIS and got a same-day appointment due to the severity of the pain. Within 5 minutes, Sophia's PT had diagnosed the jaw pain as TMJ (see below) and was due to a recent tightening of her braces, not a sports-related injury. Click here to read rest of article.

6 Questions for Two of Our NEW STAFF

ABBY TAYLOR, PT AIDE at Maroon

1. Tell us a little about your self, where were you born and raised, if not from Colorado what brought you here, do you have brothers, sisters, pets?
I was born in Winchester, VA. I attended James Madison University and studied Health Sciences, with a concentration in Pre-PT. My favorites sports include tennis, sand volleyball and watching college Basketball (Go Hoos!). I moved to Colorado in November of 2017 to follow my husband's career as a Sports Performance Coach. I have 2 sisters and one brother and I am the youngest in the family. My husband, Michael, and I have 2 super cute and goofy cats, Meiko and Dasha.   To read more about Abby, click here.

MORGAN D'ARCY, PT AIDE at Pearl Street

1. Tell us a little about yourself, where were you born and raised, if not from Colorado what brought you her, do you have brothers, sisters, pets?
I was born and raised outside of Parker, CO. I spent my childhood roaming the woods, catching snakes, and jumping off of things I probably should not have been jumping off of. I'm a triplet, and I have one brother and one sister. My brother goes to Savannah School of Art and Design and my sister goes to Robert Morris University in Pittsburgh. No, we are not identical, nor are we very similar. We are so different from each other that some people think we are lying to them when we tell them we are triplets. Right now I have a Bernese Mountain Dog named Leo and a cat named Finn.  To read more about Morgan, click here.
