Meet Susan Lonie

Meet Susan Lonie Susan’s Story “For most of my adult life, I have been involved with various types of exercise. I’ve participated in aerobics and weight lifting, along with a variety of classes that were available at the various gyms I’ve belonged to. While these activities have kept me active, they haven’t specifically addressed my growing interest and needs for proper nutrition and for strength, balance, and mobility. Three years ago, I sustained a shoulder injury. Working out very carefully and on my own did not keep my shoulder from regularly going out of place. I finally made my way in to Fenton Fitness and gave the Trial Membership a chance to help me. It was the solution to my…

The Home of Golf

The Home of Golf Walking the Golf Courses of Scotland My wife and I took an eight-day trip through Scotland.  The countryside is beautiful and driving on the left side of very slender roads is an adrenaline-charged experience.  Scotland is the birthplace of golf and the Scots are proud participants in this ancient sport.  I was surprised to find that the Scots walk when they golf.  In Inverness, Glasgow, Edinburgh, up and down the stunning hillsides of Skye--no golf carts.  People of all ages easily travel through eighteen holes of fairly hilly golf course terrain.  Most of the over forty golfers used push carts, and I saw several sixty plus golfers who used a battery-powered cart.  All of the younger…

Get The Most From Your Physical Therapy Treatment

Communication between co-treating physical therapists is often poor. I know it should be recorded in the clinic notes, but today’s documentation is written to optimize billing and not patient care. You will get the best…

Start At The End

Start At The End Invert Conventional Care This is how most neck and head pain patients travel through the medical system in a search for relief. They begin with medications—non-steroidal anti-inflammatories, non-opiate pain meds, muscle relaxers, and central nervous system modulating drugs.  This can go on for weeks, months, and even years. Progression of pain or just no improvement in symptoms leads to imaging- an x ray, CT scan, and / or the ever popular MRI.  Despite the fact that nearly everyone has something wrong on their cervical imaging, care is now directed at the faulty anatomy.  There is your problem--you need a specialist.  Next patient. The persistent pain must be caused by this anatomical alteration so site-specific injections and…
