OET News
October 2017

October OET News brings a couple new features: the E-cise of the Month, OET Recommends Spotlight, and the Key to Health. The goal of these articles are to bring you relevant and useful information and tools to help you live, play, and be pain free. 

The Floor Block is a wonderful e-cise that can help improve upper body posture and eliminate the negative effects of our computer and cell phone driven lives. The small foam blocks make doing the Floor Block along with many other e-cises much easier. This months Key to Health is variety. I talk about why variety is so important for optimal health and how creative play is a fun way to add variety to our daily lives. 

Please let me know how you like each of these new features and what you'd like to see more of in future newsletters by replying to this email. 

E-cise of the Month: Floor Block
The Floor Block is a great e-cise to improve upper body posture and alignment.  It is very common for people of all ages to have some degree of  thoracic kyphosis , rounded shoulders, and  forward head posture . The Floor Block will help correct all these imbalances which can lead to decreased pain, better  breathing , less  headaches , and  improved athletic performance . Learn more.
OET Recommends Monthly Spotlight:
Small Foam Block
The Small Foam Block is an essential piece of therapy equipment. The small block is used in e-cises like the Floor Block, Kneeling Forearm Stretch Ankle Squeezes, Standing Knee Pillow Squeezes, Modified Floor Block Prone Hamstring Curls, and many others. You can find and purchase the small block and other recommended therapy equipment  here.

I also know what it is like to overcome those injuries and become pain free. I used Postural Alignment Therapy to correct my posture, eliminate my pain, and return to living an active life without limitations.
