Summer Wrap Up: Sunny Days With CBPTAugust 27, 2015
Summer is filled with sunshine, beach days, and more free time to be with people you care about. At CBPT’s LIFE+, we want you to enjoy ALL that each season has to offer – as healthy and pain free as possible! Here’s a recap of some of the summer’s best tips for nutrition, wellness and injury prevention as we head into the fall.
Enjoying delicious food together is one of the CBPT team’s favorite summer activities. This summer, our experts gave us some great ideas on how we can enjoy food that is not only delicious, but nutritious. Rachel King, PT, DPT provided a healthy dessert option for all those that tend to have a craving for sweets. Meanwhile, Greg Van Camp, PT, DPT, ATC gave us an idea how to figure out better sauce alternatives for all those summer barbecues.
Injury prevention is something our experts strongly emphasize for any season. Louella Gopez, PT, DPT, OCS kicked the summer off by sharing better alternatives for wearing heels. (Don’t worry, you can still wear heels – just check out Louella’s tips for smarter, safer wear!) Richard Coury PT, MPT, OCS, ATC, CSCS informed us of the preventative measures one can take if you are prone to falling. And for our athletes out there, our experts shared tips to prevent injury and when to return back to playing your sport!
Our wellness tips are aimed to help make life more healthy and enjoyable. They are easy ways to get the most out of everyday routines and events. We call them our summertime “PT life hacks”. Sherwin DeGuzman, PT, MPT, OCS was our master of travel this summer with tips on reducing stress when driving and ways to have a pain-free flight!
Our dogs made quite an impact on us this summer – in fact, August 26th is National Dog Day! Melissa Urrutia, PT, DPT, OCS enlightened us with ways we can stay active while still spending time with our furry friends! Check out more of these summertime “PT life hacks” below!
We love summer, but we are ready to wrap it up and get ready for sweater weather and coffee. We’re ready for you, fall… here’s to more pain-free seasons!
