According to an article on FSP Health & Fitness, no matter how well we eat or if we exercise two hours a day, spending hours and hours sitting down in front of the computer destroys our health more than we realize.

Study after study has shown that implementing injury prevention programs in various sports groups and clubs reduces the occurrence of injury in athletes.
For example, a 2007 study done by R. Bahr (1) et al found a twofold reduction in the incidence of acute ankle sprains in volleyball after the introduction of an injury prevention program. A more recent study by Riva, D (2) et al. found that injury prevention programs involving proprioceptive training reduced the rate of ankle sprains, knee sprains at low back pain in basketball players.
Whether or not you coach an amateur sports club or a competitive sports team, consider having your players participate in one of my many injury prevention programs. These programs are tailored to your sport and your athletes. Programs include, but are not limited to:
1. Baseline Functional Testing – including functional movement screen testing. This identifies any faulty movement patterns which could lead to future injuries.
2. Baseline Concussion Testing – This is done in the preseason. The goal is to assist in making an accurate diagnosis, as well as to establishing when athletes are fully healthy and safe to return to their sport should they suffer an injury.
3.Sport Specific Injury Workshops – including how to identify the most common injuries per sport and how to specifically avoid these injuries through proper training.
4. Rehab and Return to play – Should an athlete become injured a custom treatment plan will be created and implemented to ensure a safe return to play.

How many of us have that aunt or grandparent who believes they can predict the weather based on the amount of discomfort in their knees or hands? Well, there just may be some truth to their claims.
As the extreme cold weather continues to embrace our city, more and more patients are coming into the office complaining of joint pain and stiffness. Last year’s polar vortex had similar results, the amount of joint complaints seemed to double over the colder months. So, is there a link between joint pain and a drop in temperature?
