What You Need to Know

There's no simple formula.

Your body is a complex and highly interactive system. Not every problem can be solved by the pill or the knife. In many cases, more balanced and less intrusive treatments are the most effective.

Don't let your pain sideline you

A small injury today can lead to bigger problems tomorrow. Get back on track, with the confidence that you have properly healed, and are as strong or stronger than you were before.

You are the key.

Your health and wellness depend on a variety of factors, most importantly you. Exercise, nutrition, habits, routine, posture, activity level… all aspects of your daily life play a role.

Push through the pain? Not so fast.

Your pain is an important indicator that something is wrong, maybe seriously. The only way to truly resolve pain is to treat the underlying cause. Ignoring it or treating just the symptom could make things worse.

Don't just recover... improve!

With proper treatment and rehabilitation of your injury, you can come back better than before: physically, mentally, and emotionally. Learn your body, and how best to use and care for it, and you’ll be amazed by what you can accomplish.

When you feel better, YOU FEEL BETTER.

Pain casts a cloud over every aspect of our lives. Learning to endure it is not the answer. When you’re free from pain, you have more room to excel, enjoy life, and be your best possible self.

      Peloton Crash!

      Ever have one of those days where everything just goes wrong? Home-workout company Peloton just had one of those days, every day, for a whole quarter.

      Last year Peloton capitalized strongly on the shift to work-from-home, selling thousands of its $2,000+ bikes throughout the pandemic and building up a fanatic fanbase. This year hasn't been as easy.

      Jumping off the bike

      Probably the most worrying trend in Peloton's numbers is also the simplest: people just aren't using their Peloton as much as they used to. The number of total tracked workouts fell for the second quarter in a row, and the average member is using their Peloton about 20% less than they did this time last year.

      On top of that, the financials aren't good. Revenue did grow 6% relative to last year, but that was below expectations, and boosted by an enormous slash in the price of a Peloton. The company was hoping that the lower price would whip up crazy demand. That never happened.

      What did happen was Peloton's gross profit margin fell to 12%, from 39% a year earlier, guiding the company to an overall operating loss of $360m for the quarter. Oh, and the company is having supply chain issues, like everyone else.

      At the time of writing, the company's share price is down more than 33%
