How many times have you run that mile? How many times have you looked at your stopwatch and sighed at the missed minutes or seconds on the clock?

It’s not all about back disks and joint pain… physical therapy can be the different between a good run, length, ski, or jump, and a great one. Let’s see how!
If you suffer from arthritis, winter is less a call for celebration, snowball fights, and snuggly evenings on the sofa, and more a cause of worry, anxiety and – sadly – pain.

As the writer of this blog, I might have taken ¨ liberties¨ with the term expert. By putting quotes around it I figured I am now justified! Yes, I work for CustomFit Concierge Medicine, Health and Fitness. I have observed many treatments, spoken to many clients, before, during and after their course of treatments.

Although there are many adjustments to be made setting our minds to this environment it is better for the mind and the body to embrace this time and make changes. When we put these in place we can have them in place on a day to day basis.
We thought this month would be a perfect time to talk about a really important topic: balance.

So, let’s get some stability on the subject, shall we?
