Yesterday I made my first attempt at "No Sit Tuesday". Driving in the car was tough to say the least. (No I didn't stand in the car.) What I did do however, was stand all day at work and then perform all my normal duties that would require sitting at a desk or doing notes in the seated position, standing. Fortunately I am blessed with a very active job but what I didn't realize is how much I do end up sitting throughout the day.
I CHALLENGE you👉 to choose to perform one activity today that you would normally do sitting and stand instead.

Sitting in a nutshell contributes to:

2) Deactivated (Weak/turned off) gluteus musculature 
3) Increased lumbar intradiscal pressure
4) Increased incidence of pelvic/lumbar misalignment

Our bodies are creatures of habit just like our minds, they don't like change. If you sit all day, your body thinks that is it's normal position and then 👆 happens.

Give "No Sit Tuesday" a try and for extra credit mix in some hip flexor stretching and glute activation exercises throughout your day.

As always,
A body in motion, stays in motion

Introducing Sarah Pierre, PT

The Appleton office would like to welcome Sarah Pierre to our physical therapy staff!

In Sarah's words -

I was born and raised in Wisconsin.  Upon graduation from UW-Stevens Point, I entered the US Army and was fortunate to be assigned to the US Modern Pentathlon Olympic Training Team and competed in the event for three years.  During that time, I became well acquainted with the Physical Therapy staff due to training injuries.  Shortly after I retired from the sport, I attended the US Army-Baylor PT Masters program.  I spend most of my PT career in Texas and Arizona.  I recently relocated to Appleton to be closer to family.  I enjoy most outdoor activities but especially hiking, kayaking and paddle boarding.  I am excited to integrate my PT experience with Schubbe Resch Chiropractic clients.
