[05/12/20]   Who could benefit from PT telehealth appointments?

****People who are having pain or difficulty with their current work from home set up. Many people are working from home for the first time and didn’t have time to set up an ergonomically efficient home office. It has never been easier for us to help you perfect your set-up to decrease the strain on your sore neck, back, hip, shoulder, etc!
****People who are having difficulty with childcare due to daycare and school closures. You don’t even need to leave the house!
****People with compromised immune systems or who may be at high risk during the current COVID 19 outbreak.
****People who prefer a more private treatment setting than the open clinic. Telehealth sessions are completely one-on-one in a quiet, private setting.
****People who are unable to afford their copay at this time due to loss of income (please confirm with your insurance company how they pay for telehealth appointments).**

#wellnesswednesday #loudouncountyva #leesburgva

Today for #wellnesswednesday we are talking about strength training! I think we all know strength training is beneficial for physical appearance (getting buff 💪🏻), but it is important for a ton of other reasons! Here are some benefits of strength training you may not know about...

💪🏻 Lower abdominal fat. A 2014 study of men found that strength training is more effective than cardiovascular exercise in reducing abdominal fat.
💪🏻 Better cardiovascular health. Decreasing abdominal fat also decreases the visceral fat that sits around your heart and other vital organs.
💪🏻 Controls blood sugar levels. Resistance training improves your muscles’ ability to take in and use glucose (blood sugar).
💪🏻 Reduced cancer risk. A 2017 study showed that visceral fat cells produce high levels of a cancer-triggering protein. Thus, decreased visceral fat decreases risk of cancer.
💪🏻 Osteoporosis prevention and management. A 2014 study showed that just 12 weeks of strength training increased spine and femur bone mineral density by 2.9 and 4.9 percent respectively.
💪🏻 Brain health. A 2016 study showed men aged 55-86 who strength trained twice a week for 6 months improved cognitive test scores significantly.

Time to hit the weights! Not sure where to start? Make an appointment today and we can help you get started on a safe strength training program!

This is a great stretch for when you’ve been hunched over your desk all day, but often people arch their back which means their pecs aren’t getting as strong of a stretch. Next time you lay down on your foam roll, make sure to press your lower ribs firmly into the roll and feel the difference in the stretch! #motivationmonday #loudouncounty #leesburgva #physicaltherapy @ Tompkins Physical Therapy and Medical Gym of Leesburg

It’s #FormFriday and we are going to talk about the IT band...

I’m sure you’ve heard someone say their IT band is tight and they are foam rolling it to improve flexibility. Let’s discuss why that isn’t the best move.

In a 2018 study by Hall and Smith, they found that foam rolling directly on the IT band caused NO CHANGE to range of motion, but hip adduction range of motion did improve with foam rolling the surrounding muscle groups. What does this mean for you?

Foam rolling directly over the IT band is uncomfortable and according to this study, UNPRODUCTIVE. So what should you do instead? Roll forward a bit and roll the outside of your quad muscle and the front of your hip (think from your front pocket down toward your knee). Roll backward a bit and roll your gluteal muscles. Both of these things have been shown to improve hip ROM and are generally less painful than rolling right over the IT band.

So whip out that foam roller and try something different for #FormFriday !

Thanks to @allisonteppernutrition for coming in to chat with us and teach us a bit about nutrition on National RD Day yesterday! 🍍 #wellnesswednesday #nutrition #leesburgva #loudouncounty

It’s #motivationmonday and we’ve got a great stretch for you today that you can do right at your desk!

When you’re feeling like your posture is starting to fade and your neck and upper back are starting to get sore, try this one out!

Sit up tall, pull your shoulder blades down and back, open your chest, and move your arms up and down like Jen is here in the video.

#motivationmonday #physicaltherapy #posture #stretch #leesburgva #loudouncounty

It's #formfriday! Let's talk about an exercise that is done frequently, but many people lack the mobility to do correctly.

In order to do a good squat, you need:
1. Adequate ankle dorsiflexion range of motion
2. Adequate hip and knee flexion range of motion
3. Adequate hip strength and motor control to avoid valgus at the knees
4. Adequate motor control and core stability to avoid excessive extension through the lower thoracic and upper lumbar spine

Want to learn how to check if you meet all these criteria? Check out the stories for more info about each! Still not sure? Give us a call and make an appointment ASAP!
