General Healthcare Info : What can a physical therapist do for you?

A physical therapist is a state licensed professional qualified to implement indirect and direct care for a patient with the goal of rehabilitating normal body operations after injury, post surgery, or for a chronic malady. A physical therapist can provide treatment to individuals of all ages.

There is a difference between physical therapist and a personal trainer.

A personal trainer is a fitness professional.  Their objectives are to customize a safe and effective exercise and diet regimen for their client, working with them one-on-one mainly to change their eating habits and get them into a daily workout routine so that they can develop the healthier physically fit body they desire. The trainer's role is one of re-habituation.  Correcting bad habits that don't lend themselves to a healthy body and lifestyle.

Client versus patient?

A physical therapist is almost always assigned to a patient who is having difficulty resuming a normal healthy lifestyle because of musculoskeletal, neuromuscular, and/or cardiothoracic ailments.  The professional knowledge, skills and experience of a physical therapist must be far more extensive than a personal trainer.  A physical therapist must graduate with a minimum of a master’s degree from an accredited university, pass a national board exam, and become a health care provider licensed in the state where they practice. In nearly all instances, a physical therapist is part of referral team of medical professionals. The program the therapist designs for the patient must take into consideration how to return their body to a pre-injury, pre-surgery, or pre-illness state of well-being. Similar to the trainer, the therapist will develop an exercise program tailored to the individual.  But the goal of physical therapy is rehabilitation. It is much more challenging than retraining a person not to engage in bad habits. It can be an integral part of pain management.  The patient should view a physical therapist as an important partner on their journey to recovery.

Health Benefits of … Fruits and Veggies

Do you love fruits? Do you love veggies? Do you love fruits and veggies? Do you get even more excited when you find out the fruits and veggies you love are loaded with health benefits too? Like you really didn't need to be persuaded to eat them. But now you have a justification for enjoying them! YAY!!  It takes so little to make me happy.  :)


Joined the BlogBourne blogging community at the request of a friend and stumbled across a gold mine! One of the bloggers at this site supplies detailed dietary and nutritional information about several fruits and vegetables. Below is a sample listing.  There are more.

Cool Down Up North - Dee's Dialogue - maa organics (Reblog)

Shared this lovely image (below) via Pinterest years back. Was reviewing some of my pins to my board for general healthcare and came across this one. The link had changed which sent me into full blown panic mode!  (Right.  A shared pin on how to relieve stress and I'm freaking out!) Searched for this diligently and found it. Corrected the original source link for my pin but as an added step and blogged this post. Don't want to lose it again! Australia is on my bucket list of Places I'd to Go and if I ever get there, will have to visit Tropical North Queensland. :)
 
FYI. The link that had changed led me to this nice lady's new blog maa organics. Fortunately her posts from her old blog were still available to the public. Love both blogs!! They're absolutely fabulous!

Fuel Up Your Body and Stay Energized!

Americans everywhere are putting forth extra effort to maintain their health and well-being.

When it comes to making quality of life choices and developing healthy living habits, Austin-ites are exemplary. Austin, Texas is a very health and fitness conscious city. You can tell by all the bikers, runners, and joggers you see on the streets. Worked briefly as a temp for one of the city's departments, and at that time even the city's mayor, Will Wynn, was making an earnest effort to encourage the city employees to adopt an exercise regimen and eat healthy; and made public health and wellness one of the priorities for his administration. He served two terms.  

Sharing a quick recap of an article published in the January 2015 Issue of Austin Fit Magazine. Tori Jarzabkowski, the author of article, indicates that nutrition-wise, people are now focusing on five foods that fuel the body:  matcha tea, bone broth, fermented foods, coconut sugar and seaweed snacks.  

This advice can be combined with tips provided by Lynnis Woods-Mullins, the CEO of Praiseworks, Inc. Lynnis started her company when she was 51 years young. To celebrate her organization's 5-year anniversary, she shared her advice on five healthy and holistic ways you can get more energy NOW!   She recommended:  water-hydration; exercise (just a brisk walk); super foods; detox green smoothies; and aromatherapy.

Don't we all want to burn bright like the sun, at least most of the time, if not all of the time?

You comb through hundreds of articles on diet, health, and nutrition. Listen to Dr. Oz and all the other experts. You despair and wonder if you will ever achieve your “healthy eating” objectives. Finally you find an information that gives you hope. Why? Because it lists all the foods you like to eat anyway!! Not some. ALL!!!

Seems we would rather spend our energy, money, etc. on trying to colonize Mars instead of maintaining Earth. (Don’t want to go on a rant. But it’s one of my pet peeves! GRRR …!!) :) Here’s what came in the mail this morning!

Happy Saturday! For my cat loving family and friends,

Happy Caturday!!

Stay safe and enjoy the holiday season!

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow! And indeed, what would the holidays be without snow? It’s what gives Frosty his bulk and what makes Christmases white, putting the “wonder” in winter wonderland. But for all its bright sparkly beauty, snow has a dark side, too. Like when there’s too much of it! And you’re in the thick of it. And you can’t get out! Would you know what to do if you were stranded in the snow?
