Or, consider the alternative… a long term hospital and/or skilled nursing care stay that could last several weeks to months as you recover from a heart bypass or a toe/foot amputation because of diabetes. Call me cynical, but maybe we should be looking to the processed food industry for funding of many medical conditions that have dramatically increased since the advent of convenience-type foods, yellow number 5, and high fructose corn syrup.
But what’s reality? Obstacles to keeping in the water surfing?? What if your back hurts, your shoulder is stiff, you blew out your knee or hip, and now surfing is a hell of a lot harder than it used to be. Well.. that is where I come in. Licensed as a physical therapist with a clinical doctorate for 9 years, and working within the rehab industry for nearly 20 years, I specialize in corrective exercise for the aging surfer. My goal is to help you stay in the water surfing as long as possible.. Not only because the stoke factor is great, but to help reduce preventable health care issues such as obesity, heart disease, bone density loss, and decreased balance. Ultimately, chances are, if you are surfing, you are preventing a lot of the complications involved with many of the US’s preventable disease processes.
And, for those of you who maybe you don’t have too many aches and pains, but you’re just interested in developing a long-term, wellness routine to promote good shoulder/ back/ or hip and knee mobility and strength..? I would recommend our online wellness programs available at www.painfree.surf. These are broken down into 3 Courses: Paddle, Duck Dive, and Pop-Up each focusing on specific areas of the body.. each focusing on a particular area of the body.
Our goal is to help you stay active and involved with the ocean later in life, keeping you healthy and maybe, just maybe saving you a dime or two over the long haul by promoting life-long wellness.
