Injury Prevention is Worthwhile Work


When the sun finally breaks through the dark gray skies around the Pacific Northwest, it seems like everyone is drawn outdoors. Perhaps the sun calls you to tackle that yardwork you ignored during all those rainy months that now need serious attention. Or maybe it wakes you up early to finally go on long hikes, kayak, play beach volleyball, bike, or run outside again. 

Yes, around here better weather means more physical activity. However, unlike the weather, if you spring into action too soon you are bound to get hurt. And if that happens, you will wind up having less fun in the sun (and it’s so fleeting!).

That’s where the professionals at A2 Physical Therapy can help. Think of them as your personal “movement consultants.” They will talk to you about your fitness/fun goals and evaluate your readiness so they can create a custom plan to help you avoid injury.

You can be fitter, stronger, and more flexible than last year. From nutrition and exercise plans to cutting-edge technology and even tips for better sleep, A2 offers a well-rounded approach for everyone to up their game, from serious athletes to weekend warriors.

And if you do happen to overdo it while yanking on that lawn mower cord or get hurt while playing a mean game of soccer, A2 will be there to help you overcome injuries, too.  And hopefully get back to the fun in the sun as soon as possible.

"My name is Irvin Markham. I am a member of A2 Physical Therapy and Fitness. I have been a member of several gyms but never had a personal trainer. With no schedule or workout plan, I would always eventually quit. My wife suggested to go see her personal trainer Kristi Cruz. What a difference the experience has made in helping me get the most out of my workouts. Kristi has not only helped me get 71 year old body back in shape physically, but mentally as well. She has put me on a set schedule and encourages me to do all the things I need to do to stay healthy. I cannot thank Kristi and the entire staff at A2 for all of the support they have shown me."

"I’ve had 4 surgeries with different physical therapy clinics and this was my favorite. I felt comfortable and felt like I mattered to my PT which was a good feeling. My progress was as I had expected and any time I had a question or concern it was always answered and my PT adjusted. If it needed to be to avoid the pain I had I didn’t feel pressured to have more PT appointments or pressured to do workouts that aggravated my pain. Thank you for your help! I think offering stem and ultrasound for every patient will be really beneficial. Great experience overall."

"A2 Physical Therapy is very professional. What I liked the most is that they are very thorough with their assessments and personalizing exercises/treatment according to my pain/limitations/injuries. I really do feel stronger and feel confident to get even stronger! Everyone has a super positive attitude which helps with motivation. Thank You!"
