At ABC, we spend most of our day helping people figure out not only how to move more, but move better.... We believe that any movement is better than no movement but also see it as our responsibility to highlight the differences between different forms of movement.
Depending on what your goals are not all movement is equal. For example, for heart and lung health riding a bicycle is a great choice. But if you are looking to avoid osteoarthritis in your hips, walking overground is where it's at!
We are passionate about helping you find the forms of movement that help you live your best life today and for years to come. Reach out to us with any questions you may have about whether or not your movement routines will help you meet your goals!
Just a simple reminder: movement each and every day is essential! So tell us, how are you getting your move on today?

One of the most important questions we can ask ourselves. If you're not getting the health results you are looking for, your movement is likely a huge factor!
Movement really comes down to a matter of convenience....Today moving more to accomplish our daily tasks is viewed as an inconvenience. But what if you could drastically improve your health by making your life less convenient?
Small simple moves like parking at the end of the parking lot or taking the stairs instead of the elevator add up. By thinking about the small changes you can make throughout the day to move more you can change your health for the better!
What ideas do you have for making your life less convenient today?
Have you been to a physical or occupational therapist and not had the results you were hoping for?
Or were you satisfied with the therapy you received at the time only to have the same problem you went there for in the first place return?
The reason we started ABC was to address these very problems!
When we first started our careers as therapists in a big facility, we were quickly disenchanted by the heavy emphasis on diagnosis codes, insurance reimbursement, and the lack of personalized care.
So... fast forward a few years and here we are.
Don't mind us as we go off on a bit of a tangent today on what you might want to consider avoiding when you are going to a physical or occupational therapist. Making sure you find a therapist and clinic that are the right fit for you is something we are so very passionate about!

How often should we be challenging our balance?
It is true that we live in a world that no longer challenges our balance. We have a habit of sticking to routines that don't allow for much variability in our movement throughout the day. And this is where the problem comes in...

The opportunities you have to improve your balance every day are endless! What can you do to start to challenge your balance today?
