What Is Orthopedic Therapy?

Orthopedic Therapy is a form of physical therapy that aims to improve weakened or injured components within the musculoskeletal system through non-invasive treatments such as exercise and stretching. This type of therapy works with all of the bones, joints, tendons, ligaments, and muscles throughout the body. Commonly used in sports medicine to improve recovery, orthopedic therapy is an important part of post-surgery rehabilitation. Orthopedic therapy also helps ease symptoms of chronic joint or bone ailments such as arthritis.Ivy Rehab Network

Selecting the Right Nutrition Bar

Karen Malkin, AADP from Karen Malkin Health Counseling discusses the difference the KMHC Transformation Bar and other nutrition bars on the market.

Karen’s Transformation Superfood bars contain 270 calories for a 60 gram, super heavy bar.  Most other bars are smaller at 45 grams in weight. Transformation bars contain 11 grams of organic rice protein, 12 grams of fiber, and only 5 grams of sugar from the dried cherries. YUM! Transformation bars are non-GMO, made with cashew butter, almonds, cherries, rice protein, 100% unsweetened raw cacao chunks (that taste like chocolate chips), plus superfoods such as flaxseed, spiralina, maca, and greens.

They are vegan, soy-free, gluten-free, and dairy-free. They make a great pre or post workout energizer. They get me through my 3-hour bike rides, and they have enough protein and healthy carbs to be a recovery snack after a great workout! I take them with me when I travel and make a great mini-meal on an airplane or anytime I need some fuel. They are best kept refrigerated but are packaged and can stay out of the fridge at above 72 degrees until the expiration date set on each bar. If you refrigerate or freeze them, they will last even longer! Related-What to Look for in your Protein Bar.
