OET News
February 2016

Welcome to the February OET Newsletter!

I hope you have had a good start to the year 2016 and are keeping your body and health a priority. This months newsletter will hopefully help you in that regard with many informative and useful articles. First I have a running warm-up and cool-down to help your running be pain free. This routine is very effective for using before walking and hiking also. The next article is about 10 things that cause posture imbalances and pain. For each cause of imbalance I offer a "fix". Let me know how they work!

This month I feature the Egoscue and yoga exercise called Cats & Dogs and explain why, when, and how to do it. If you don't already do Cats & Dogs regularly, I would highly encourage you to try it for a week. Lastly, I have a 14-minute Strong and Lean workout for those looking to keep their New Years Resolutions to get in shape going. 

Have a great month!
Running Warm-up and Cool-down Routine
Run pain free with this Egoscue running exercise menu.
Running is a natural human activity and one humans needed for survival. I believe: "You weren't just born to run, you were born to run pain free." When our posture is compromised running becomes a struggle and can lead to pain and injury. This running warm-up and cool-down are designed to help restore your postural alignment allowing you to enjoy running pain free. Watch the video.

The Strong and Lean Workout
Reach your potential!
Physical performance is a product of good posture (joint alignment), muscle strength and stability, joint range of motion, efficient cardiovascular function, and cooperation between those components. This 14-minute workout will improve all of these and build coordination and cooperation between them.  Get strong and lean now!

Your free 30 minute appointment includes discussion of your symptoms and goals, posture evaluation, functional testing, and gait analysis. We will then discuss the different therapy options that are available to help you reach your goals. 

Visit or call 971-279-2189 to schedule your FREE posture evaluation today. 
I believe that your chronic pain is not because of your age, genetics, past injuries, or activities you do. I believe your pain is because you have lost proper postural alignment. Correcting your posture will allow you to live the life you want to live and continue the activities you love to do, pain free! If you or anyone you know is suffering from chronic pain or injuries, encourage them to call me today - I'd be happy to help them.
