Summer is here - stay cool

It has been super hot outside this summer! My grass is already brown and the sunburn's continue. Make sure you hydrate and reapply sunscreen to avoid being a summer disaster!

Hydration 101

Why Hydrate?: It's important because your brain needs it! As does the rest of your body such as your muscles, joints and organs, not to mention digestion and vascular systems.
How to Hydrate: Carry a bottle around with you - its easier if it's in your hand!
Take a sip every time you look at your phone/device. Think about how  much water that will add up to! 
When is enough: Look at your urine - pee check - it should be clear to light yellow.  Anything darker and you are dehydrated.  If your urine is green, you either had too much asparagus or you need to follow up with your doc... yikes!
Are you a teacher or married to one? Check your extended health insurance policy as the OTIP now expire in either August or September. Be in the know as it might be time for a massage, physiotherapy appointment or even new orthotics! Utilize your resources now while you have time and coverage, your benefits will reset soon!
BIG NEWS - Apple Creek has just invested into your health and recovery.  We are happy to announce the purchase of two Powerplay units, which provide cold and compression therapy.  Check out the LINK for some video of the unit in action.
A baseline test is a battery of tests that measures every area of brain function that could potentially become affected following a concussion. It is a “baseline”  because it is done BEFORE the athlete gets injured.

Baseline testing can be done at anytime; during the open dates we offer the same discount for individuals as we would for a team.
