A running coach and physical therapist make a podcast.
We’re excited to have Brian Elder, USATF certified run coach and founder of Roswell Running Co join us on the podcast. As we tell all our clients, we’re physical therapists that have a strong leaning towards athletics and sports, but that does not make us coaches. Coaches have much more specialized knowledge and experience in optimizing the performance of athletes in a particular sport, such as golf pros, running coaches, or tennis pros.
In this episode we learn more about Brian’s background and his new company, Roswell Running Co. If you’re a runner, then this is absolutely an episode you do not want to miss!
Share with all your running friends. Got a question for Brian or Dr. Balmes? Let us know on Twitter @endvrhealth

The Importance of Strength
This is a throwback video to our first ever interview with the practice, originally recorded in 2017. Here we chat it up with Jacob Lonowski, then Strength and Conditioning coach for Georgia State University. He is now a student physical therapist at the Georgia State University PT program.
Listen to learn why strength is so important for all athletes and for overall health!
Mmmm fresh running shoes.
There’s nothing more amazing than taking a run in brand new shoes. I was so excited when this pair came in the mail that I even made an unboxing video too.
Here I took out the shoes out for a run during vacation at NYC recently. After several weeks of running with the pair, I wanted to share my first impressions.
Be on the lookout for the full review of these shoes, as I put down more miles in them. Happy running out there!
Umama does it all.
In this episode, Dr. Balmes chats with Umama Kibria, Founder and CEO of SASS Brands. Umama is a community leader, certified gym hopper, tech evangelist, and connector. She does it all. On this episode she shares her endeavor and her love for the Atlanta fitness community. Watch and listen in to learn what her favorite deadlift song is, what a social media “influencer” really is, and why Atlanta is the best fitness community city in the US! Thank you Umama for joining us on the podcast 🙂

Admit it, your sitting office posture stinks.
When you’re sitting at your office at your desk for hours every day, more often than not, your sitting posture stinks.
You know what we’re talking about. Head and shoulders forward, because well, gravity wins every time. Unless you’re a rocketship.
Now it is entirely possible to go through life with your slouched posture, but the side effects are well known. You may experience neck discomfort or muscle tightness at the base of your neck.
Regular exercise can help, but what can help even more is a targeted exercise to reverse that slouched posture.
Our favorite exercise? We like the simple foam roll back extension exercise.
The concept is simple really…with your body in a forward posture for hours, this exercise simply reverses it. Muscles at your chest lengthen. Your spine expresses extension motion that it has been begging to do for hours.
We like doing these ourselves at the end of an intense day at the desk. If not, then doing this at the end of a long week can help too.

Experience your best round ever.
Dr. Kim PT was recently out serving the golfers at the East Lake Invitational here in Atlanta, GA. Want to feel mobile and ready for a round of golf?
Check out his favorite stretch to get your low back and shoulders feeling loose and ready for your best round ever.
Child pose exercise tips:
- Perform in pain-free range of motion
- Perform prior to a round of golf or a session at the range to free up any motion through your trunk
- Don’t force through any block of motion. Consider a consultation with us here in clinic for a deeper look!
Experience better health.
When we all think about health, it’s usually this: you’re not sick or injured. And that’s it.
In this video we’ll talk about health in a more complete definition that’s much more accurate.
According to the World Health Organization, health is defined as this:
Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.
Consider addressing all of your physical, mental, and social aspects in your life for better health!
We’re excited to make more videos that cover all three of these elements from the perspective of a sports physical therapy clinic.

Dragon Boat Paddling Basics
If ever you were curious on how to get started on dragon boat paddling, then this video is for you. We made this video a few years back in collaboration with a dragon boat coach here in Atlanta.
Dragon boat is different from crew, because in dragon boat you’re paddling. In crew you’re rowing. The difference is more than just in the name. The motions involved for both your body and the oar are different from rowing.
Enjoy the video and let us know in the comments what you think!
