Colleen Cleves“Getting old isn’t for sissies.” “Good enough for my age and stage.” “There is no gold in the golden years.” “I shouldn’t be doing that for my age.”

Over the years, I have heard these and many other statements from my patients and clients regarding aging and the aging process. But I have also seen and witnessed my older patients do amazing things! So the question becomes, how do we avoid the stereo typical image of aging and can it be done gracefully?



Cheryl SchwietersRemodeling Phase Day 21 to 2 years

In this installment we will be discussing the final phase of the healing process. Regarding soft tissue such as muscle, ligament and tendon, scarring has been created and is now changing over to a more solid structure. Though it will never be as strong, new fibers can heal to almost 80% its' original strength. Bone formation has happened and now is being converted from soft callus to hard.



AlexSalinasThe internet contains an abundance of information about concussions.  This information ranges anywhere from educational and useful to sensationalized and misleading.  I am not writing this post to tell you about how to identify a concussion or what the signs and symptoms are.  The goal of today’s post is to provide some enlightenment on return-to-participation (RTP) protocols.  In my experience, there is less push back from parents, student-athletes, and coaches in the identification of concussions and more push back regarding the return date.  I believe this resistance is due in part to confusion given the number of changes and updates in policy over the past five years.

CPR in the Community

Written by

Brian GilbertI have been working as a Physical Therapist in the Forest Hills area for 17 years now. I’ve seen a lot change over the years especially in the health care arena during this time. What I’ve come to appreciate during this is the consistency of our communities in which we serve. Here at The Center for Physical Rehabilitation we have worked alongside many schools and organizations to deepen our connections to the people we live with and work with. Many may not know that we have provided the Athletic Training services to all the Forest Hills Schools. We also do this for Byron Center schools, Catholic Central, and Cornerstone University.
