Year in Review: What did we learn?

Posted on: December 21st, 2016 by Forbin Admin

We can’t believe that 2016 has already come to a close! While this year was full of many impactful events, for today’s blog, we wanted to take some time to highlight the best of our blogs:

How runners can prevent injury” focused on the importance of stretching, not overdoing it and finding an appropriate running surface.

Common car accident injuries, and what you can do about them,” emphasized the importance of seeking out a therapist when certain symptoms persist, such as headaches, lower back pain, and pain to the neck and shoulders.

Traumatic Brain Injury: Yes, you can recover,” looked at how therapy can help with the aftermath of a TBI, especially when it comes to issues such as balance.

Horizon Rehabilitation Centers specializes in treating certain neurological disorders, such as fibromyalgia. That’s why we talked about certain seasonal effects on this condition in “How spring impacts your fibromyalgia symptoms.”

With the advent of warm weather, more people tend to head outside to start exercising. That’s why in May, we focused on preventing shin splints and what exercises you can do to prevent osteoporosis.

In “6 Things That Can Help You Live With Fibromyalgia” we learned that boosting activity, eating purposefully and joining a support group are just a few things you can do on your own to manage fibromyalgia symptoms

We had the chance to display the victory of one of our patients in “Erin: A Success Story.” We learned about Erin Orr, who came from a family of runners but who was never able to run herself—until the doctors were able to identify what was holding her back!

The medical community has found that physical therapy can replace riskier treatments such as surgery and painkillers. We explored that a little bit in the blog, “Physical Therapy instead of surgery.”

In “Don’t Let Your Muscles Shrink While You Recover From Injury,” we learned that continual training and certain dietary practices can help keep your muscles maintained even after you’ve been injured.

The “The Do’s and Don’ts of Preventing Workplace Injuries” focused on some of the misconceptions about workplace injuries, and what employers can do to prevent them.

At Horizon Rehab, we know that staying educated about your health is important to maintaining it. Check out our blog archives, and call us today to make an appointment if you’re experiencing the kinds of pains we talk about!
