Sam Schmidt, PT of Alpine PT presented a “Love your Spine” exercise class last month at the regional office of the United States Forest Service (USFS) here in Missoula. Participants learned exercises and tips on how to best care for their spine and to prevent injuries. Some lucky participants also won fun and useful gifts such as a foam roller!
This month, Sam returned to teach “Healthy Lower Body and Healthy Upper Body Exercises”. Alpine Physical Therapy will be releasing videos of both of these classes to the USFS so staff can access these valuable information at the tip of their fingers.
Next month, Leah Versteegen, DPT will be presenting on top-rated and research-based exercises for running. Spring is the time we all get eager to get out again and start pushing up the miles. Do it this year without getting hurt!!
Thanks to everyone at the USFS for taking care of yourselves and changing the way you think about work related injuries..
Classes are on the second Tuesday of every month from12:00 to 1:00 pm at the Regional Office at Fort Missoula in Missoula. Wear comfortable clothes you can move in, and bring any matters you may have, along with questions! See you there!
