Alpine team members were super excited to run across this article by Julia Malacoff in the March 19, 2018 edition of Shape.com. It really has a message for our clients, and we want to get these words out!
No one wants to land themselves in physical therapy. Maybe you have a workout-related injury, were involved in an accident, or are trying to get to the bottom of some lingering pain you've been having for a while. Whatever the reason for your rehab needs, you probably want to get better as quickly as possible, in as few sessions as possible.

Special thanks to Alpine PT's Jocee Long for giving us the details of her rookie year shredding it in this year's Missoula Telemark Challenge.
The Missoula Telemark Challenge is officially complete, and Alpine PT was strong in spirit and winter slalom skiing in this year's race series. As the beginner on the telemark ski team, I got to experience the whole scene from a different perspective than the more seasoned racers on the team.
We would carpool up the mountain on Thursday evenings after work to join the ranks of rowdy telemark skiers at Snowbowl. There was often heckling about winning or sandbagging strategies for the up coming races and discussions on the challenge of the week. Some memorable challenges were the option to race in leather boots and straight skis to get 15 seconds deducted off your time.
My second favorite was the addition of the uphill 'reipeløkke' loop around the off-course "spirit lounge" filled with cow bell toting spectators and then race back on to the dual slalom course to finish.
While telemark ski racing was definitely a new and challenging skill for me to learn this year, it was awesome to experience the rush of the race, the laughter and the camaraderie with co-workers.
Here's an informative article on how to keep your spine happy and healthy when you must bend over. It was published in NPR online on February 26, 2018.
To see if you're bending correctly, try a simple experiment.
"Stand up and put your hands on your waist," says Jean Couch, who has been helping people get out of back pain for 25 years at her studio in Palo Alto, Calif.
"Now imagine I've dropped a feather in front of your feet and asked to pick it up," Couch says. "Usually everybody immediately moves their heads and looks down."
That little look down bends your spine and triggers your stomach to do a little crunch. "You've already started to bend incorrectly — at your waist," Couch says. "Almost everyone in the U.S. bends at the stomach."
