Welcome to OET News! It is September and the kids are back in school, our weather has cooled down, and we are finally getting some rain. I love fall in Portland because the air is clean, the leaves start turning beautiful colors, and the cooler weather allows for continued outdoor activities. The start of fall also means I'll soon need trail shoes designed for mud and a headlamp for my evening trail races in Forest Park!
This months newsletter starts with a informative video explaining and showing the importance of big toe alignment and how it influences the arches of the feet. "Text Neck" has been in the news lately and I've included a video and article explaining what it is, where it comes from, and how to correct/prevent Text Neck and the associated pains. I am sure everyone reading this newsletter already understands (and has experienced) the benefits of good posture, but for good measure I've included a video highlighting exactly that. To help you enjoy the benefits of good posture, I've added a new mobility workout video that will help you improve your joint mobility, muscle strength, and of course - posture!
