Elite Physical Therapy can help you stay active this spring

The Rhode Show

With warmer weather upon us, you may be looking to get outside and to become a bit more active. Plus, after a long winter that perhaps saw you working at home and sitting for extended periods of time, this could be a more challenging time than usual.

Thankfully, you can be ready and the team at Elite Physical Therapy can help. This morning on ‘The Rhode Show’ we welcomed Elite’s Founder/Doctor of PT, Michael Nula, as he chatted about the various ways being active can help your mental and physical well-being.

He also shared and recommended some valuable stretches that can help you be ready for a more active lifestyle. As demonstrated in the video, you can try these out at home with their Dynamic Flexibility Program which includes:

HORIZONTAL ABDUCTION – Standing tall with arms straight and up in front of your body, move your arms out towards the side as shown. Return to original position.

DYNAMIC HAMSTRING STRETCH – While standing with your arms stretched out in front of you, raise and swing a leg forward while maintaining a straight knee. Alternate to the other side. Hold onto a chair with one hand for balance, if needed.

DYNAMIC GLUTE STRETCH – While standing, raise up a knee while bending it and grasp it with both arms as you pull it up towards your chest for a stretch to your buttock. Alternate to the other side. Lean your back against a wall or sit in a chair for balance, if needed.

DYNAMIC QUADRICEPS STRETCH – While standing, bend your knee to touch your heel to your buttock. Alternate to the other side. Hold onto a chair with one hand for balance, if needed.

Please perform 10 repetitions of each exercise, 2 times per day.

If you have any questions or if you would like to speak to one of their Elite Physical Therapists, please contact (401) 737-4581. Appointments are available in 24-48 hours. Free 15-minute Healthy Check Ups or Injury Screenings are also available In Clinic or virtually with Telehealth.
