Are You Fit??

The APTA Develops An Adult Fitness Examination


Fitness is something everyone is talking about, but how do you know if you are truly "fit"? What does being "fit" really mean anyway? The APTA has come up with a baseline evaluation to determine a persons general fitness level. In involves assessing cardiovascular fitness, flexibility, strength, balance and overall mobility...all the components of a "fit" person. We are working on incorporating these fitness or wellness evaluations into our practice, but currently it is something that will not be paid by insurance. In an effort to gain knowledge on who might be interested in seeing "how fit they are" we are asking for you to complete a simple two question survey to help us make our decision on adding this service to our locations. To go to the survey, please click here.

All About Shoulder Labrum Tears

Something we see quite regularly is patients with labrum tears in their shoulder. It can happen with throwing athletes, industrial athletes or even when falling onto your shoulder with your arm outstretched to break your fall. Not every labrum tear requires surgery, but almost all of them will benefit from some physical therapy to restore mobility and strength.
