Make your 2018 resolutions stick with these goalsetting tips

A typical New Year’s resolution is doomed to fail – that is, if you believe in statistics alone. According to Madras physical therapist Brock Monger, research shows that around 80 percent of people who make resolutions on the first of the year have already fallen off the wagon by Valentine’s Day. That includes two of the most popular resolutions made throughout the U.S. each year: to work out more and to lose weight. “Fortunately, statistics don’t control the success or failure of any life change,” said Monger, co-owner of Apex Physical Therapy in Madras. “Medical...

Managed exercise, physical therapy can improve concussion symptoms 

With high school sports starting up soon, and NFL training camp in full swing, concussions are certain to ramp up within the mainstream consciousness. And while talk will often point to conventional wisdom which states that “time and rest” are the best and only options for recovery from concussion, Madras physical therapist Brock Monger says that studies now suggest managed exercise and movement can hasten recovery.  “It wasn’t that long ago when concussion sufferers were told not to move – to rest, with no exercise, until symptoms improved,” said Monger, co-owner of Apex Physical Therapy in...
