Dr. Jed Droge, PT, DPT, OCS, ATC, CSCS
Dr. Sarah Droge, PT, DPT
When it comes to preventing or recovering from pain, why limit treatment to one approach? We're advocates for multifaceted care and doing everything possible to help people achieve their maximum potential. This treatment approach has recently gained notoriety with its successful outcomes for cancer care at the Cancer Centers of America (http://www.cancercenter.com). Why shouldn't we do the same to prevent or improve joint pain? Especially when that approach may lead to healthier skin and nails, and improved energy levels.
Dr. Jed's experience as a board certified orthopaedic physical therapist, athletic trainer, and certified strength and conditioning specialist not only provides him with unique insight, but has allowed him to work with active individuals of all different ages and skill sets. He's noticed one common finding among them all. Those who care for their bodies with appropriate activities and practice good recovery techniques are often injured less and have a much better quality of life.
Dr. Sarah also enjoys sharing the extensive knowledge she's gained as a movement expert. In addition to being a skilled physical therapist, she's an active mother who's always working hard to provide healthy, positive experiences for her family. She's quick to share her insight to other families wanting to enhance their time together. She's also quick to provide parents with tips for protecting their bodies from the additional stresses of raising children.
Furthermore both Jed and Sarah participated in collegiate track and field, and understand the demands that athletes put on their bodies. Sarah participated in a NCAA Division I cross country and track & field program. Jed was the winner of 6 NCAA Division III Athletic All-American awards in the long jump, 2 ESPN the Magazine Academic All-American awards, and a NCAA post graduate scholarship. Competing in collegiate athletics has allowed them to understand the importance of both a well rounded exercise program and a good recovery strategy. That's why they'll be working with No Boundaries Health & Wellness to promote a lifestyle that aims to keeps people up, active, and doing what they love.
From time to time Jed and Sarah will be adding blog posts that draw attention to publications or discussions that they feel can help promote the multifaceted lifestyle they believe in. Predominately these will revolve around activities and exercises. In addition, they'll also be providing some exercise sheets complete with directions and tips on technique. All of these resources are aimed at increasing your general health literacy and are absolutely FREE. They truly hope that you value the chance to be an active partner in your own health and do all that you can to enhance your own outcomes.
