  1. Winter Wonderland or Winter Woes? Winter often brings picturesque scenes, but it can also be a season of increased stiffness and discomfort for many. The colder temperatures can lead to tightened muscles and reduced joint flexibility.

  4. Addressing Seasonal Conditions: Conditions like seasonal affective disorder (SAD) can impact both mental and physical well-being during the winter months. Coal Creek Physical Therapy doesn't just focus on the body; it addresses the holistic well-being of an individual. We offer The Associative Awareness Technique which is desensitizes the Central Nervous System by providing safe sensory input through heat, music and a variety of calm touches to comfort each of the five senses – this makes the brain learn to turn “off” the “flight or fight” response and turn “on” the “rest and digest” response. Each patient will receive an individualized self-care program in order to keep their nervous system in the “rest and digest” mode on their own after treatment. The Associative Awareness Technique (AAT) reduces anxiety and depression related muscle tension and pain, improves insomnia and digestive issues, and restores emotional balance and mental clarity.
