Today is national bike to school day and we're here for it! We just cannot get enough outdoor exercise in, now that spring is finally here.

One way teammates love to get some fresh air is through community rides and Pedal Bicycles hosts rides often - we love that they're so involved in the community and always willing to help with their exceptional service. If you stop by and talk to Tim, tell him your friends at Northern sent you.

So who's up for a ride today? Get out there, (always stretch first!) and get moving!

Teammates came together for a surprise baby shower for our very own Shelby Ruiter! We played a few shower games which got surprisingly competitive. Word of advice - don’t challenge Lisa Otterbein-Bolek or Courtney Safka to a game of The Price Is Right. You will lose.

Congrats Shelby!! We are so happy for you!!

It's been way too long since we've been able to get our clinic directors together so as you can imagine, this was an event worth documenting.
We laughed (way too much), collaborated, and learned so many things from each other. Our hope is that we are able to safely meet up again, sooner than later. ❤

Fight Parkinson’s disease with LSVT BIG 04/21/2021

Fight Parkinson’s disease with LSVT BIG

“People are often devastated by the news that they’ve been diagnosed with Parkinson’s because there is no cure, and it’s a progressive disease,” explains Amanda Kushba, PT. “Although I can’t provide a full recovery for these individuals, being able to help them gain more independence and confidence to do some of the things that they love, and improve their overall quality of life, is absolutely priceless.”

April is Parkinson's Awareness Month. It's important to know some of the signs. It starts out slow with a slight shake in your hands and fingers. You begin to notice things like your handwriting getting a bit smaller, and your sense of smell just isn’t what it used to be. Overall you seem to be moving a little slower and you’ve been having trouble sleeping. What may seem like simple signs of aging could actually be the onset of Parkinson’s disease.

Who's ready to start gardening? Today is National Gardening Day so it only seems appropriate - at the first sign of spring we always want to get out there and get our hands dirty.

A few quick tips to avoid feeling the burn the next day:
- Don’t over reach, stay close to your work area
- Keep your elbows partially bent
- Face your planting area to avoid twisting
- Squat with your heels on the ground
- Keep your back relatively straight
- Alternate tasks that require heavy or repetitive movement with tasks that are easier to do

In an effort to spread some love and help out a great locally owned business during these crazy times, if you have questions about products, seeds, or feed, give our friends at Reed City Feed & Supply a call. They've been around for over 100 years and the customer service is top notch. Tell them Northern & Ivy Rehab sent you!

April is Autism Awareness Month. While we celebrate awareness every day, it’s also important that we continue to bring awareness to the world. Awareness leads to acceptance which leads to inclusion.

Awareness develops understanding.
Acceptance leads to a life without shame.
Inclusion leads to our clients thriving.
We work hard every single day to address all three necessary qualities and celebrate every child and the unique gifts they bring.

Thank you to our partnering pediatric clinic in Brighton for sharing your wisdom and hearts with us. 💙

Lung transplant patient uses PT to overcome common signs of aging

“Physical therapy has kept me moving, allowing me to get down on the floor and play with my grandson – which means the world to me.” – Rickey Draft

Whether it be faith, luck, or a combination of the two, Rickey received a lung transplant and began physical therapy before the surgery to strengthen his body for what was to come. The surgery was successful and Rickey’s body accepted the transplant well, but he’s now facing new challenges. Read his story to see how physical therapy is helping him overcome common signs of aging.
