Performance Physical Therapy Gives the Gift of Movement Through Interactive Webinar and Video Series

(Providence, RI) - Performance Physical Therapy is hosting a live, interactive webinar, The Gift of Movement: Putting Self-Care at the Top of Your List on December 9th at 1:00 PM. This initiative is to support the community throughout the government-mandated pause, Performance wants to help keep Rhode Island and Massachusetts healthy, happy, and moving.

The Gift of Movement webinar will feature an expert panel of 3 physical therapists, Dr. Brendan Boyle, Dr. Jordan Madigan, and Dr. Kayleigh Melroy, who will answer questions and explain how movement at any activity level can make a difference in your mental health, weight loss, and pain management.

“After nine months of keeping up with the daily changes that COVID-19 has forced our country and our community to make, everyone is battling pandemic fatigue,” says Dr. Michelle Collie, CEO of Performance Physical Therapy. “Science shows that movement helps manage stress by combatting the negative impacts that it has on our mental and physical health.”

This initiative is accompanied by Pause & Progress, a series of daily all-levels exercise videos that are posted on social media. Inspired by Rhode Island’s “pause,” these short videos explain how to do exercises at home and feature ways to accommodate people of all fitness levels.

“With the COVID-19 pandemic, many people are finding themselves craving extra comfort food,” says Dr. Brendan Boyle, PT, DPT, OCS. “Our Pause & Progress series can help to manage those extra pounds with calorie-burning movements!”
