August Market Perspective
The U.S. equity market seems to be caught in a push/pull environment of whether the economy will recover as robustly as previously believed. The gross domestic product (GDP) report for the 2nd quarter of 2021 is a great example. During that quarter, market analysts forecasted that the economy would grow by 8.4% and grow at even a faster rate as the year progressed. But that forecast turned out to be too optimistic as the actual GDP for the 2nd quarter was only 6.5%.

Health and Wellness for Our Clients
Benefits of Liver Consumption
Melissa Martin, Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor, Certified Pilates Instructor
Most of us in the United States have never eaten liver of any kind. And to be honest, culturally speaking, it sounds reviling to the majority of people. The mental block around the idea of consuming organ meats is something that can be very difficult to overcome. To be perfectly honest, I have struggled with this concept myself. Luckily, there are many ways to consume this natural superfood for our health regardless of the squeamish factor it presents.

Ryan Hastie, PT, DPT, CSCS

Neck pain is a common complaint treated by outpatient orthopedic physical therapists. Many adults will experience pain in their neck at some point in their lives. It can usually be attributed to trauma (car accident, sports injury), poor posture over many years, or chronic symptoms due to arthritis. Neck pain is most common in adults aged 30-50 years old. Research indicates that neck pain is more common in women.
