**17** donation barrels are deployed around our city to collect much needed items. You can find the locations in the "Donate -> Find a Barrel" section on our NEW website. https://gracekleincommunity.com

We also need your help to find more collection barrels so we can keep growing partnership with more businesses and churches!

Thank you to 4700 Colonnade, Innova Coffee, Era King Hoover, ERA King Homewood, Jazzercise Riverchase Fitness Center/ Birmingham, Elevation Hoover Apartments, Crowne at Cahaba River, Crowne at Grandview, Jennifer Smith - Keller Williams, Southern Wellness LLC, River & Cape Montessori School, Santos Coffee, The Lighthouse Community Church, Greystone Tire & Auto, Birmingham Physical Therapy and Sports Medicine, WM Peters Company, LLC, Vestavia Reserve Apartments, Vestavia Hills United Methodist Church, and Retreat at Greystone.

Why barrels matter?
Today was our RECORD drive thru day at Liberty Church Birmingham We served 223 families at that one location. When you put food in a barrel, that food ends up in a food box, that finds its way to a person’s plate. Then, you have happy tummies, full hearts, and less food in landfills. #lovedoes #eathealthy #fightfoodinsecurity #feedbhm #loveservesharerepeat #thechurchhasleftthebuilding #gratitude

We are back today for our last installment of hip strengthening exercises in our #MovementMonday series. Today, we demonstrate how to progress last week's exercise, the hip hinge, into a single leg movement. This single leg movement provides further challenges to your hip strength, muscular control, and balance.

If you are needing more of a challenge with your exercises, try this movement. Make sure to keep your back straight and your knee lined up with your hip and ankle! Give us a call if you have difficulty or pain so that we can assess your movement patterns and improve your physical performance. (205) 298-9101.

Another week, another #MovementMonday tip! This week, we demonstrate the hip hinge. This is a very functional movement that can help strengthen the back side of your hip. It is also very important in improving your technique with squatting, picking up objects, and preventing injuries to your lower back. If you are having back or knee pain with tasks around your home, there is a good chance you aren't hinging properly from your hip. Try this move, and call if you are having difficulty with it. We would love to assess your movement pattern and help get you on the path to pain-free movement!

Call us today at (205) 298-9101.

Today's #MovementMonday video continues our hip strengthening series. Here, we demonstrate a ball squat against the wall. If you find that you have difficulty maintaining proper form during a squat or that you experience knee or back pain, try this motion instead. If you are experiencing difficulty, remember that we are here to not only treat your pain, but to also improve your overall movement patterns. So don't hesitate to reach out if we can answer questions or help improve your exercise performance!

(205) 298-9101. Give us a call!

Will is back with some more strengthening exercises for your hip! Today, he demonstrates how to do a side step, which aims to strengthen the abductor muscles in your hip. As we have talked about in previous weeks, strengthening these muscles is essential to maintain proper low back, hip, and knee health.

Try out this exercise and check back next week for another idea to add to your program. As always, give us a call at (205) 298-9101 with any questions. We are happy to help!

Our last #MovementMonday of 2020 is dedicated to more stretching for your hip flexors. Today, we show you how to perform a kneeling hip flexor stretch. This is a nice alternative to the stretch that we previously demonstrated in which you were lying on your back. Give this stretch a try if you are having hip or low back pain, and let us know how it goes.

If you have questions, give us a call at (205) 298-9101. Let's move into 2021 feeling better together!

Will is back today with another stretch for your hip on this #MovementMonday. Today, he shows us how to perform a stretch for your hip flexor while lying on your back. Your hip flexor can be implicated in hip or low back pain, so it is important to have good extensibility through this muscle. Try adding this move into your routine and let us know how it goes!

If you have questions about your pain or if we can be of help to you, give us a call at (205) 298-9101. We look forward to hearing from you!
