Many of us hold our breath everyday…when we get out of bed, when we stand up, when we exercise and when we lift. How many of you just realized you were also holding your breath as you were reading this?

Does my Diastasis need Physical Therapy?

The answer is it depends. Don’t you hate that!

If you are not breathing, then your core is not working efficiently.

During this winter season, everyone will pick up a shovel at some point. A foot of snow can weight 7 pounds when it first starts to pile up.

This is why it is so important to watch those body mechanics!

Here a few quick tips to maintain your spine health during snow shoveling:

  • Pick the right shovel! Some shovels have ergonomic handles that can decrease t...
