The Importance of Sports Physicals & a Concussion Q&A

(1)

With another school year less than a month away, it brings back the excitement of school sports. Area school districts are holding their respective sports meetings and putting great emphasis on making sure their kids are prepared for their upcoming seasons both academically and physically. Part of being physically prepared is having a sports physical done by a medical professional and having the basic knowledge regarding concussions and the proper way to deal with and treat them when an athlete suffers one. Listen on Friday the 24th as we talk to Dr. Kevin Ree from the Sanford Worthington Medical Clinic. Dr. Ree will fill us in on just how important it is for an athlete to get a sports physical. He'll also give us the low down on what a concussion is and the current technology we have to help us monitor and treat them.


Work Outs With a Partner Vs. Going It Alone

(1)

For many people, the gym is like their sanctuary. It's a place where they can go and focus on their preferred workout without having to interact with other gym-goers if they don't want to. Just pop your headphones on and get to work. Going off on their own and doing their own thing just feels comfortable. Many wonder what working with a partner would be like. Can their workouts get any better if they trained with somebody? Listen this Friday the 18th as we explore the idea of training partners. Jaime Salinas and his recent training partner , Dana Collin, will discuss the great things that can come with training with a partner.

The Yoga Experience

(1)

When you think about yoga, what pops into your mind? Yoga mats? People contorted in confusing-looking poses and chanting "Ommmm"? Yoga pants? From the outside, yoga can seem mysterious.

What is Physical Therapy?
