Looks like alot of snow heading our way this season, here are some tips from the healthcare professionals at Progressive Sports Rehab to keep you safe.  When shoveling wet heavy snow take layers of snow as you go that aren’t heavier than you can lift.payday loans Bend your knees and lunge forward as you lift the shovel, use the stronger muscles of your thighs(quadriceps) to handle the weight and not compromise your lower back muscles.  When dumping a heavy load of snow out of the shovel don’t twist your body with the weight, this motion should be rhythmical and fluid to avoid stressing the low back.  Lastly, take frequent breaks to avoid fatigue and further compromise what could be weak muscles that aren’t used to an activity like snow shoveling.  Stay safe this new year and keep all those resolutions going!!

When I learned they were opening PSR I was one of their first patients. You could not find two more compassionate gentlemen dedicated to improving their patient’s well being. They put the Care in healthcare. - Diane C


My daughter has a form of cerebral palsy that weakens one side of her body. She can walk, but she’s always had to wear a brace to support her weak ankle and foot. After one month of Physical Therapy at Progressive Sports Rehab she has made more progress than ever before. Her Doctor has said she no longer has to wear her brace that set her apart from everyone else. We are elated!! - Jacqui W.
