The Blank Calendar

Each week, I look forward to visiting with patients in my clinic to see  what is going on in their lives and discussing things that they are  passionate about in the community.  Anthony walks into my clinic often,  usually to report some sort of daily news such as the lunch specials at  the local restaurants or what the particular “national day” is today. 

Growing Up

Do you remember being asked as a child “what do you want to be when you grow up?”  If you were like me, that answer has changed many times.  For me, it was to be a professional golfer-the next Tiger Woods.  As I matured, my putting stroke didn’t, so I figured it was a good idea to come up with a plan B. I quickly realized I wanted to do something in healthcare, and after a few sports injuries, physical therapy seemed like a good fit for me.

Going Beyond

“Go Beyond” is a part of Dynamix core values.  We want this to be a defining characteristic of who we are as a company.  In our interactions with clients, members, and co-workers, our aim is to deliver more than expected.  I came across a story about a farmer and his two sons that is a great example of “Go Beyond.”

ONE MORE REP

WHEN I DISCOVERED YOGA

January 1, 2015. I needed a change. I’m not usually one for New Years resolutions, but I recognize the need to continually self-assess and adjust accordingly. It just happened to be a convenient day for…

BACK IN THE SWING OF THINGS

Golf is a great game.  It has been apart of my life ever since I can remember, literally.  There is footage of little baby Adam running around in diapers knocking around a whiffle ball with a grey plastic golf club my father bought me.

TAKING CHANCES

In life we ask ourselves, “Do we play things safe or do we take a chance?” For example, does a football team play it safe and kick a field goal, or does it take a chance and go for it on 4th down to win the game?

CORN

Corn fields in the middle of a Tennessee summer—they’re hot, arguably hotter than a woman scorned. Regardless, this is where I found myself 25 years ago…
