When sitting use a firm chair with a straight back, maintain an adequate lordosis (using a lumbar roll will help support your low back).

Pain is your body’s way of telling you something is wrong. Respect what your body is telling you and modify your activity or stop if you are hurting.

To help prevent aggravating symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome while on the computer, be sure shoulders rest comfortably at your side, elbows are bent to 90 degrees keeping forearms parallel to the floor and wrists are in a neutral or straight position.


August Running Clinic

Thu, Aug 27th, 2009

The fall race season is right around the corner and Ridgefield Physical Therapy is hosting another Running Clinic to prepare athletes.  The clinic will be held on Thursday, August 27th from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. at their offices at 66 Grove Street in Ridgefield.

A sequel to the Spring Running Clinic held in May, Ridgefield Physical Therapy offers these popular free clinics to prepare athletes of all skill levels for both increased exercise and upcoming races.  The Spring Clinic prepped area runners for the Ridgefield Triathlon and the "Run Like a Mother" 5K.

The panel present at the clinic will also include Owner and Certified Orthopedic Specialist Chuck Giordano, PT, MS, Cert. MDT, Physical Therapist Ann Nolan, Sports Medicine Specialist Dr. Ross Henshaw of Danbury Orthopedic Associates, Coach David McCluskey from Ridgefield High School and Coach Fred Cone of Kilometers specialty running store.

To supplement the presentation runners' techniques will be evaluated by therapists, an individualized running progression program will be created and question and answer stations will be available for footwear, running gear, and specific injury discussion.

"Runners usually acquire injuries due to faulty mechanics or improper progression" Campbell said.  "This clinic's aim is to give runners an outsider's look into their technique and to provide an individualized program to progress to their goal, whether it is a 5K or marathon."

Admission is free and space is limited to 25 people.  Please reserve your spot as soon as possible by calling Ridgefield Physical Therapy at (203) 438-1898 or email with the subject "Running Clinic."
