Webinar: Women’s Health: Urinary Incontinence and Pelvic Organ Prolapse

Tuesday, August 4th, 2020

  • Urinary Incontinence and Pelvic Organ Prolapse – when your pelvic floor doesn’t do what it’s supposed to do. Women’s bodies are designed to do incredible things, yet our anatomy can predispose us to things going awry- like leaking when you laugh or sneeze. Join our Women’s Health Specialist, Rebekah Wolinetz, PT, DPT, in learning more about two common conditions women can experience throughout their lifetime: urinary leakage and pelvic organ prolapse. Learn about the pelvic floor muscles, what can cause these conditions to happen, and what you can do about it in our upcoming webinar!

Webinar: Corrective Exercises: How to Build Strength Safely

Wednesday, July 22nd, 2020

  • The term ‘corrective exercise’ covers a huge arsenal of exercises that are commonly used by physical therapists to build strength when someone presents with dysfunctional movement. These are simple movements that are intended to strengthen specific muscles that are required for stabilization during more complex movements. Many times we encounter people who are in pain because they have been performing these more complex movements without the proper stabilization strength. In this webinar, we’ll discuss common movement faults that can lead to pain/injury and guide you through corrective exercises that are easy to do at home. All of these will be accomplished with either a TheraBand or no equipment at all. If you have a TheraBand, feel free to bring it and exercise along with us!

Webinar: Exercising With Low Back Pain

Wednesday, April 8th, 2020

Oftentimes, new or chronic bouts of back pain may cause individuals to decrease movement and levels of activity.  Given our current circumstances causing many of us to work from home, this can be particularly easy and seen as a solution to pain; however, decreasing activity can actually be a factor that worsens and prolongs the episode.  So what should we do?

I’ve had some bad luck with injuries. I had 12 holes in right knee, many doctors said I should stop playing basketball. David has been able to put me back together. I’m not worried if I get hurt because I know I can come see him and get back to 100%.

I would say working with David helps you to learn about your body, not only in sports but in life. How to make taking care of your body part of your daily routine. I feel a lot faster and stronger since coming here. My body feels more balanced.

I’ve been playing basketball overseas for three years and this last summer was the first time I came to see David consistently. After doing my therapy and all of the exercises David gave me on a regular basis, I had the best season percentage wise that I have ever had.

For the past 2-3 years I had been experiencing right leg pain, back pain, and a slew of other issues. A friend of mine referred me to React and I’m truly amazed by my progress. A few months later and I’m now 100% healed. If you have imbalances, flexibility issues, mobility issues, call React.

I am so indebted to React. For so long, having pain in my shoulder was so normal, I didn’t even think about it. The first time I woke up and walked around for hours before realizing I wasn’t in pain was amazing. I can’t thank them enough for their detailed, careful, and hard work to fix me up.

I came here fresh off a major hip operation and knee repair. My body was completely unbalanced. I think since my time here, we’ve made huge strides I didn’t think were possible. My stability and strength is better than it’s been in probably 10 years. I think it has everything to do with David and the techniques he has used. I’ve never seen anything like it before.
