Amidst the flu shot team, local garden project booths, the sustainable transportation guys and many other awesome community health promotion stands, Alpine Physical Therapy was there. Short consults on topics like, why frequent out-of-desk breaks are important, how the head is supposed to sit atop the spine, and why my knee pain persists even after I stopped running, were examples of typical questions.
Many people only needed advice on improving their mobility or reducing their joint stresses, others were advised on getting a more comprehensive physical therapy evaluation for more serious or limiting injuries. Either way, it was great to collaborate with Missoula County on a fine autumn day last week.
