Dr. Michael Milnes has worked as a physical therapist in Rochester, MN, for nearly two decades. He is passionate about helping athletes heal from injuries and has personal experience recovering from a football injury.
Yoga is one of the many things that Dr. Michael Milnes recommends to his Rochester, MN, patients.
“I tell them to do yoga every day,” said Dr. Milnes, “not just for healing, but for injury prevention. The science is there and the common sense is there, yoga prevents injuries. It has helped me tremendously.”
If you’re prone to injuries from sports or daily activities, consider adding yoga to your morning or evening routines. The easiest way to begin practice is to purchase a yoga mat and yoga pants for a home practice. Search for beginner yoga videos on YouTube or sign up with a yoga-oriented channel to get routines to do every day. This is cheaper and more practical for daily practice, especially because you can stop when you need to and modify as necessary for your physical condition.
Don’t forget to check with your physician or physical therapist before you begin yoga. Dr. Michael Milnes often guides his Rochester, MN, patients through one or two yoga practices to deliver personal injury-prevention tips before letting them switch to home practice.
