Comments

BEWARE- Sullivan PT are sending me to collections because I had one missed appointment ($50 fee) and the total is now $67.50. COLLECTIONS - even though I called to apologize and let them know what had happened to make me miss the appointment. They refused to waive the fee or give me any grave whatsoever.
Sullivan PT has been great to work with. I would high recommend them. Christina McGee as a Physical Therapist has been fantastic and Crystal Hirst as a Patient Care Coordinator has been awesome to work with.
I wish I was told about Sullivan before and I just love the workers thereπŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—
I called 23 hours ahead of time because I have been called out of town and they're charging me a cancellation fee because they have a 24-hour cancellation fee. I could understand being charged a fee if they could not fill the slot but I know that they have a waitlist for appointments because you can never get in because they're overbooked again if you couldn't book the appointment with somebody else I'll be glad to pay a fee but to just charge a fee because I called 23 hours instead of 24 hours ahead of time I think is unreasonable I read a business too and there's exceptions to everything
I have received today an email from Amanda that I am scheduled for 1st appointment on Monday, at 10:45 AM. My schedule shows Thrus., 29th at 9 am. I am very nervous because I don't have transportation for Monday. Amanda, can you call me or email me??? 512-821-3330
Sullivan PT is superb in every sense!
I was treated by four different PT's, but saw Christina on a regular basis.
Christina was exceedingly knowledgeable, offered great input, listened to my concerns, and had a great "bedside manner" which was important to me. I think of her as the ultimate pro.

I admired and appreciated the work of Amanda who was always friendly, welcoming, and efficient as the first impression of Sullivan PT - great asset!
SAVE THE DATE: June 10th 11am

Mental health is as important as physical health. Make sure you are taking time for both every day.

Here is a mental health tip for today...

Tell yourself you've got this. Have a go to affirmation that you can tell yourself when you are struggling like "keep swimming, just keep swimming."

Other suggestions are:
- I am brave.
- I can do this.
- I believe in myself.
- I am strong.
- I am beautiful.
- I can do hard things.
- I am smart.
- I am capable of great things.

During pregnancy, alignment changes within the pelvic bone are fairly common as changes in body weight and composition occur. As a result, women can experience painful pelvic tilting that creates unevenness in the spine. The loosening and softening of ligaments in preparation for delivery can contribute to misalignments. A pelvic misalignment can bring about a number of painful symptoms and complications.

Pelvic misalignment can lead to pain, discomfort, urinary incontinence and other complications.

Some signs of pelvic misalignment can include:

- Pain in the back and hips
- An unbalanced walk
- Poor spine alignment

About 80 percent of women will experience pelvic pain at some point during pregnancy. For some women, it is an intermittent, mild pain. Other women will experience deep, wrenching pain that makes it feel as though the pelvis is splitting apart. Delivery is not necessarily the β€œcure” for pregnancy-related pelvic pain. The widening of the pelvis occurs during pregnancy does not decrease immediately after delivery. Pelvic issues that begin in pregnancy can be exacerbated during delivery.

The Low FODMAP Diet is a clinically effective tool used to identify carbohydrate food triggers for people
suffering from Irritable Bowel Syndrome and/or Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO). It is effective at
reducing or entirely eliminating symptoms in the majority of people with IBS.
.
FODMAPs are types of carbohydrates (sugars) that are fermentable. In certain people, these foods can
trigger gas and bloating, and exacerbate IBS. The types of carbohydrates include Fermentable Oligosaccharides, Disaccharides, Monosaccharides, and Polyols (FODMAPS), and the specific types of sugars include fructose, lactose, polyols (sorbitol and mannitol), fructans, and galacto-oligosaccharides (GOS).
.
If these carbohydrates are poorly absorbed and fermented by bacteria in the small intestine, as is often
the case for people with IBS and or SIBO, the result can be gas, abdominal pain and distension.

What to eat for stress management.
- Lots of veggies, low glycemic fruits, nuts, seeds.
- Avoid highly processed foods.
- Well-sourced small, fatty fish, organic pasture-raised poultry and eggs and organic
grass-fed beef (if you choose to eat animal products).
- Avoid high mercury fish
- SMASH acronym for safe fish (Sardines, Mackerel, Anchovies, Salmon, Herring)
- Eat organic food as much as possible, especially anything from an animal, soy, or corn.
- For best oils, choose minimally processed oils such as cold-pressed organic extra virgin olive oil, avocado oil and unrefined coconut oil. Avocado, cold-pressed olive oil
and coconut oil are the best choices for high heat cooking (>325℉). Avoid refined and industrialized seed based oils such as canola, soybean, corn, safflower, sunflower and/or grapeseed.

Exercise for stress management
.
- For people without exercise limitations, aim to get 150 minutes of moderate intensity exercise (you can talk, but can't sing during this type of exercise) or 75 minutes of vigorous intensity exercise (can't talk or sing during this activity) or combo of both.
.
- Try to avoid sitting still for longer than 20 minutes at a time, even by stretching while seated. Break up longer periods of sitting with brief stretching and/or walking around
the office or outside. Medical studies show that blood sugar and inflammatory levels in those who break up sedentary behavior are lower than those who do not.
