Getting Back to the Great Outdoors

After what seems like months of physical therapy tools like range of motion testing solutions and automatic strength testing, you have finally been released. A second surgery on your hip has meant that these last few months have been more than a challenge, but you are thrilled that your therapist has now lifted all of your restrictions and you are free to enjoy anything in the GREAT OUTDOORS that appeals to you. And at a time when the kids are just finishing up the remote learning from the school year and many of your formal vacation plans have been cancelled, you are certain that the fresh air will serve as an advantage to the whole family.

  • Time with your children in the backyard may seem kind of simple, but it is important to know that these small moments become the really big things that kids will remember forever.
  • Hiking on a mountain trail or around a lake is an important way to make sure that you are exposing your children to scenes that remind them of their place in the world.
  • Enjoying a day on the lake fishing on a boat is another way to make sure to help your children learn to patiently wait and pay attention to even the smallest of nibble.
  • Getting the entire family out for a bike ride is a way to get exercise while also getting to explore some local trails.
  • Riding bikes to and from the grocery store can help you limit the amount of items that you buy at any one time, while limiting your fuel consumption at the same time.
  • Each foot on the human body is made up of 28 bones, 30 joints and more than 100 muscles, tendons and ligaments. It is for all of these parts that you want to make sure that your children are living the most active life that is available to them. Your time in sessions with various kinds of physical therapy tools left you longing for the time when you can experience nature again with no restrictions.
  • As more and more families find themselves with less busy schedules, it is important realize that more and more people are going for family walks. Long, leisurely time spent in quiet conversation exploring your neighborhood is a great way to spend an evening.
  • The game Ultimate Frisbee is an active way to hang with a group of friends, while perfecting both your skills and your stamina.
  • One of the best ways to relax and relief stress is to spent some time outdoors first thing in the morning and the last thing at night. Catching a sunrise or sunset or two a week can help you keep things in perspective.

  • Tennis and golf are sports that allow people to socially distance while still competing.
  • Dugouts are somewhat off limits these days, but it is still possible to work on hitting and throwing skills while you wait for the games to get scheduled again.
  • Only the most disciplined athletes can find a way to stay in shape even when the gyms are closed and the team practices are cancelled. Moving your workouts outside is a great way to achieve many goals.
  • Of the 31 million Americans who experience low-back pain at any given time, far too many of them do not realize that with the right physical therapy tools they could be out in the beauty of nature as often as they like.
  • Research continues to show that participating in just 10 minutes of physical activity every day can help improve mobility and create a longer live span. For this reason alone, it is important for all parents to do what they can to get their children up off the couch and into the great outdoors.
  • Staying in the house and on the computer or phone is no way to live a life.

It was a combination of physical therapy tools like manual muscle testing devices, your therapists and your will power that finally got you to this point, but after just one weekend in the GREAT OUTDOORS you can tell that all of those energies were worth it.
