Been Shoveling Lately?


We Have Been Shoveling Too...


This winter has been pretty brutal on us in the eastern part of Massachusetts with close to 100 inches of snow in some places since the middle of January. We have all been faced with growing piles of snow and we are all finding it harder to throw snow up on top of those piles. Add in everyone's new favorite hobbies of "roof raking" and "ice dam busting" and you are left a group of people using some muscles they might have used in a while. To help you through the soreness, we have put together a simple stretching program to address the tightness you are probably getting in your hamstrings, back, neck, arms and legs. Click here for the program and keep your fingers crossed we don't get much more snow this winter! If you find that the stretches aren't doing all they can to help reduce soreness, contact one of the experts in any of our locations.

All You Wanted To Know About...
...Epidural Injections.
A very popular treatment method for helping people control pain associated with neck and back problems is an epidural steroid injection. At Blue Hills Sports & Spine, we work closely with a number of physicians that perform these procedures on their patients. The goal is to reduce pain to allow you to get back to your normal life again...and we are here to help by instructing in you in the proper post procedure stretching and strength training programs to make sure you have a full recovery. Click the image to the right to be taken to our patient education portal to learn more about epidural steroid injections.


Time For A Brisk Walk?
An Interval Walking Program Could Be For You...

There has been an increase in the popularity of High Intensity Interval Training recently which involves the performance of short intervals of intense exercise. This has been shown to have great benefits to the health and fitness level of people that are partaking in this type of training, however, it really isn't a fit for everyone.


There are many people that handle many of the exercises that are generally used in High Intensity Interval Training, but the majority of people can handle walking for fitness. A team of scientists from Japan have done a multi-year study of people that were instructed to perform an interval walking program and the health benefits have been impressive.
