Many of the clients we see in our practice assume that they are “too old” to build strength through exercise. Interestingly, many of the people who tell us this are not old at all. There is a growing body of research that proves that while it is true that younger adults build strength a little more quickly, we can keep adding strength well into our later years. One example can be found at http://www.ergo-log.com/agetraining.html
If you have questions about how best to build strength in your body, give us a call, send an email, or stop in to ask. You can do it and we’d love to help.

Dr. Gwen Maddox joined Continuum in June of 2014 as a Physical Therapist upon graduation from the Doctor of Physical Therapy program at Husson University. Gwen recently passed her licensing exam with one of the highest scores we’ve ever heard of (785 out of 800 possible points). A native of midcoast Maine, Gwen brings a variety of clinical experiences with her to our team. We are all thrilled to have her here!

For orthopedic nerds like us at Continuum, the discovery of a previously unknown ligament in the knee is simply amazing. The “anterolateral ligament,” or “ALL” for short, was first postulated in 1879 by a French surgeon, but not shown clearly until this year by some Belgian researchers.
A quick web search for “new knee ligament” will yield several sources for you to look at… or you can just click http://bit.ly/189VWPo
