With all the great things that are now available to us in the form of technology, it is really easy to find a way to get fit at home. You can find great home gyms and weight sets that will help you tone your muscles and burn fat, and it is also easy to find Pilates and Yoga mats to do your class on. But the real question is whether or not these methods really work? And if so, how do you know which one is the best?
Pilates and yoga at home can provide a healthy and fit lifestyle. There is no doubt that these exercises will help you lose weight, strengthen your core muscles, and improve your posture. Yoga is a wonderful way to relax and to achieve wellness. However, the question many people ask is, “Pilates and yoga at home are the same things, right?” Well, the answer is both are complete workouts that improve your overall well-being while increasing flexibility and stamina.
Stress – How to cope with the new normal
Over the last few weeks we have been discussing some of the physical aspects of dealing with working from home – but what about the mental aspects. One of my patient’s employer was acquired by a larger tech firm that puts its employee’s physical and mental health first. Technology companies realize that an employee is only able to be productive when they are as balanced as possible. Tough any time, even harder now.
We have been reviewing where to sit in your home while working at home and even asked if you should be sitting at all. But this week I want to do a deeper dive into what to look for in a home office chair.
Ok, you have been home for months now working in your new office. The room is formerly known as your dining room. It looks like it will be months before you are back in a real office. What is your long-term plan for workstation ergonomics?
Many people in the Cranberry Township area are still working at home. Chances are you did not have the foresight to fit out your home with the same office set-up as you had in your office before COVID struck. As we head into fall, it is becoming clear that some things – like working in an office like we used to do are just not going to happen soon. This is the first in a series of posts on what you can do to improve your work experience from home.
Going Green – COVID update.
We all remember Kermit singing that it’s not easy being green, but we are excited that Allegheny and Butler Counties are now in green status. For Zock Family Chiropractic, that means that we will be offering massage therapy starting on Monday. We are all experiencing more stress than is then normal due to isolation and the lack of human contact. Both massage therapy and the soft tissue work that Dr. Zock performs prior to adjustment are useful techniques from reducing muscle stress and tension, increasing your sense of well being, and eliminating toxins from your body.

We are open to help you and your family. At Zock Family Chiropractic, our first priority has always been and will continue to be the health and safety of our patients. We will continue to treat acute pain, exacerbations of chronic conditions, and emergency patients.
State orders and CDC Guidelines
We are following all applicable guidelines as set by the CDC to protect our patients and employees. We have altered our reception room to expand into the larger open space. Patients may choose to remain in their vehicles until it is time for treatment.
We require that patients follow the state’s order to cover their faces while in the office. All employees will be wearing masks and will continue to sanitize completely between patient treatments. We will also screen employees as per CDC healthcare guidelines.
As Dr. Zock is considered an essential healthcare provider, we are unfortunately unable to provide massage services until further notice.
We want to thank all of our valued patients for your support and love. Know that we are making this decision as a means to help the collective and do our part in getting through this together. Please contact us and allow us to help you get through these tough times.
Amidst the uncertainty and chaos surrounding Covid-19, many of us are feeling increased bouts of anxiety and general stress. And while we’ve talked about the physical way stress presents itself in the body, we haven’t discussed the concept of coping with the anxiety itself. Since many of us now have more time to sit and ruminate in our negative thoughts, we thought now might be a good time to talk about the ways we can stay present and keep ourselves less stressed during this time.
