HPC Checkup Show – Episode 5

 COVID Spike, St. Louis County, & What We Should Be Talking About

Welcome Back Patient Family,

*** Trigger Alert – This Post is all about COVID ***

November has been quite a month. We have seen a close election that has yet to be decided and a major spike in COVID-19. Restrictions and regulations are coming very soon as is the cold and flu season and major gathering holidays. So… it’s gettin’ kinda hectic!

This, the 5th edition of the HPC Checkup Show, discusses the following topics:

  • Civil political discourse in the Office and at Home
  • St. Louis County announcements and Dr. Garza’s statements
  • Masks and other factors that help control COVID spread
  • Statistics that are referenced vs. What we should be talking about
  • ICU bed utilization across the state
  • Who is driving the spike and why the spike has occured

I truly hope you get something from this show. It does cover a lot of politics, but I see a responsibility to bring back civil discourse and acceptance of differing view points with high levels of respect.

Let’s get through the end of this terrible year in a manner that we can accelerate back to normalcy in 2021.

Good Luck and #keepmoving

HPC Checkup Show – Episode 4

Big Wins, Kindness, & Results Over Time

Hey Patient Family,

I’m sure you all stayed up last night to see the big announcement, right? The thing that will change our country? The huge shift in what has been to what needs to be?

If you’re anything like me, I know you relished in the fact that Notre Dame beat Clemson in double overtime. With Clemson’s last ditch effort to regain the lead failing, Notre Dame secured itself as the overall winner and new leader of the college football standings. What could be more important? (Nothing?… yes, that is correct)

I think something else happened, but I didn’t catch it. Overcoming severe frustration, I was able to get the channel shifted from NBC to the USA network that continued coverage of the game. How dare anyone come between me and college football – ridiculous!

Okay, okay, I’m kidding. There will be new leadership in this country and HPC is excited to be a part of mending the country’s wounds. Everyone is entitled to their beliefs as well as basic respect. I’m excited to be a part of healing a divided country, as well as healing the community’s aches and pains.

This week’s show discusses a patient who maintained the concepts that we teach even though she was away from the office. When a new pain arose (KNEE PAIN), she responded with incredible speed because she maintained practicing what she had learned.

We aren’t the rainbow, butterfly, unicorn office. We are the office that gets into the trenches together to understand our joints, muscles, postures, and movements. Doing so not only produces consistent results, but sustains them over time!

Enjoy the Show and #keepmoving

HPC Checkup Show – Episode 3

Why is it important to be Strong?

Hello Patient Family!

Welcome back to this the 3rd addition of the HPC Checkup Show. I hope you are enjoying the show as much as I am. There is so much that I want you to know and experience and your 10-15 minute sessions don’t give us all the time we need. The Checkup Show acts to supplement each patient with everything the patient family needs. I hope you can at least grab a few gems from each episode.

Episode 3 is all about maintaining and developing strength to live a full and robust life. Weak things break and decay easily, while strong things sustain and persevere. In the end, I want you to be strong. Right now, I want you to identify your weaknesses and attack them.

You are worth it. Enjoy the show.

Good Luck and #keepmoving

HPC Checkup Show – Episode 2

What a Weekend, A Tale of 2 Patients, & The Future is Bright

Hello HPC Patient Family,

Welcome back to the second episode of the HPC Checkup Show. We heard from a lot of you that you actually watched the episode… thank the Lord on High!!!

Seriously, we are going to do this regardless of how many people tune in because it is import. More important than the NBA finals. More important than the pending election. More important than whether or not you wear a mask. Why? Because it is all about you and your understanding of how to unleash you physical and mental power.

Last week was an intro, this week is all about the concept of activity and awareness. Here are the highlights:

  • Enjoy 2020 for anything positive it brings
  • Make sure your activity is broad and general – not just one thing
  • 1 Tale – the patient who lost his way (it happens)
  • 2nd Tale – the patient who stays on top of it (it can happen)

Good Luck and #keepmoving

HPC Checkup Show – Episode 1

Hello Patient Family,

Welcome to this the first episode of the HPC Checkup Show – A show dedicated to your progression towards greater levels of health and performance.

2020 has changed us quite a lot.  One of those changes has been the utilization and acceptance of video conferencing and video teaching.  We want to utilize that momentum to increase the value of our product.  Every Checkup Show will highlight general concepts that are critical to your short and long term improvements.  But, we will also discuss specific things that come up during the week to increase the show’s variance.

The topic for this week is, “Where Do You See Your Health in 5 Years?”

From Nutrition to Weight Training, Sleep to less Stagnation, we cover topics and solutions that will help you look good in 5 years.

Enjoy the show and #keepmoving
