Activate Your Core and Manage Your Mindset

Activate Your Core and Manage Your Mindset

Yes, we should schedule breaks to get up and move! Sometimes that is easier said than done. What are some life hacks we can use to feel great again?

We are pleased to share this recap and recording from our November 2021 Women’s Forum program: Activate your Core and Manage your Mindset to Feel Great Again. Our thanks to our expert speaker, Caty Stegemann, Physical Therapist and Founder of Centre Physical Therapy for leading this workshop for our Women’s Forum community.

This topic is such an important one given that more of us have spent more time working from home – which also means moving less, taking fewer steps, and often working longer hours – resulting in newfound pains! Listen to our program recording to learn:

How to Activate Your Core to Feel Great Again

About Our Speaker

Caty Stegemann founded Centre Physical Therapy in 2018 with a singular focus on human-centered care. Her holistic, attentive approach to patient treatment and passion for helping others makes her a veritable force in the physical therapy field. Her 25+ year career has spanned various in- and out-patient facilities; however, it was her position at Midwest Orthopedics at Rush where she solidified her now substantive expertise in post-operative hip arthroscopy. It was there that she honed her knowledge and skill, even writing protocol for surgeons specializing in arthroscopic hip surgeries. Caty managed the hip preservation group, further deepening her subject matter expertise.  It is this in-depth knowledge and experience that has earned Caty recognition in her field and enthusiastic referrals from physicians throughout the Midwest.
