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.

"I started at A2 about mid-July and I am in the 9:00 am Friday class. A2 has opened me up to new levels of a workout. There is no “golden Standard”. Everyone goes to the best of their abilities. I feel like I can workout without being judged. In my class there are my mom, dad, aunt Lori, aunt Amber, my cousin Mandy and our newest addition Randy. Kristi is always encouraging us to give our all. She is never telling us that we aren’t doing the workout right. Instead she helps us grow by kindly telling us if we do it this way we will get more out of it and she always helps us get there. I decided to do cross country this year and I feel like I can go and be successful and strong because of my A2 workout. Thank you so much for helping me grow in my health."

"I’m really glad I am going to A2. My PT Danny is very knowledgeable and courteous. He pin-pointed the area affected in my hip and back. We are working to improve my strength, range of motion and ultimately lessen my pain with Danny’s wide range of stretches and strength techniques to improve my quality of life. So far in the three weeks that I’ve been enrolled I’m very impressed with A2 Physical Therapy. Thanks Danny!"

"I began treatment with Alika after a back injury at work. I had already been out of work 3 weeks. Alika had an immediate impact on my back health and posture, providing more relief than I had felt with chiropractic/massage. Over the following month Alika used a unique spinal technique alongside other treatments and strengthening methods to improve my condition and get me back to work. I’ve been to several other clinics in my time as a competitive athlete and Alikas therapy coupled with his attentiveness to patients problems and injuries is second to none. Would highly recommend Alika and A2 PT to anyone with back issues or P.T. needs"
