Physical therapist and certified lymphedema specialist Katie Severeid loves to work with patients one-on-one to help them regain their health and mobility. Its a privilege for her to help patients improve beyond their expectations.
The body and the brain are amazingly adaptable. Under the right care, theyll continue to adapt to whatever challenges you throw at them, Katie said.
In the course of her career, Katie has seen patients dealing with grave injuries such as broken bones, torn tendons and strokes return to doing what they love, whether thats running, gardening or playing with their grandkids. Patients of all ages and fitness levels have regained abilities that they didnt believe they could do again.
We had a gentleman in his mid-eighties who required an experimental surgery to repair a muscle in his leg, Katie said. The patients muscles had atrophied and the surgeon couldnt predict if he would return to his active lifestyle. After customized physical therapy, he was walking unassisted, getting in and out of his farm equipmentdoing things that most 80-year-olds wouldnt be doing. Its been fun to watch and help him achieve his goals.
Theres always hope, Katie said. With the right treatment and guidance, you can have a healthier, more satisfying life.
If your recovery has plateaued, book an appointment with one of our therapists. Our highly trained therapists will develop a customized program to help you take your goals and make them a reality.

The Farmers Market in downtown Newberg is host to a variety of local vendors, with wares ranging from local berries, artisan soaps, gift cards, cookies, handmade shirts, wine, and so much more. A grocery store is a place, whereas a farmers market is an experience. Thats why visitors and locals come and spend their Wednesday afternoon at the Market.
Take for instance, Dolce Farms. Annie Brown is a smiling snow-haired woman full of bouncy spring-time vigor. Annie cares about introducing people to a new variety of fruits and veggies and sharing the bounty from her farm. The market gives her a place of community, making new friends while she offers her customers GMO-free pastured eggs, baked goods, a delicious variety of jellies, pickled beets, and so much more. Currently, she is also offering naturally grown grapes for sale.
Another delightful vendor who occupies a space at the market is Pierce Ranch. Their table is decorated with delectable sauces, pastured eggs, and soaps. They also sell cuts of meat ranging from grass-fed beef, pork, chicken, and turkey. Jodi Pierce has always raised her own meat, and sold to family and friends. So it was an obvious career move for her to venture into selling locally and making a business out of it. She was even able to retire from her full-time job. She was born and raised in Newberg, at the farm Im living at now. She encourages people to buy local, support local farms and small businesses.

If you slice, you are not alone. To correct it, you must first understand why it happens. After you strike the ball, its initial direction is mostly determined by the direction that the club is facing at impact. The ball curves away from the path that the club head is traveling, in relation to the face angle at impact. When you slice, the club head has traveled more to the left than the angle of the clubs face at impact. This makes the ball curve to the right.
Many slicers make the common mistake of moving the club head far to the left on impact. My favorite drill for automatically adjusting the club position slightly to the right of the target is to drop your right foot back so that your toe is even with your left heel as you hit the ball. With the right foot back, you have room to drive your right elbow into your right hip at the beginning of the downswing.
This is the magic move to get rid of an over the top path. As you get used to this move, concentrate on turning through to the left and facing the target at impact. If you see some hooks, dont panic. Its a good sign that you have changed something.
Work on this drill and youll be playing the opposite side of the course than your playing partners. Which, depending on how much you like to play with them, is a good thing.

The perfect way to end the day at French Prairie Gardens is with refreshments for the whole family before the drive home. You can find the espresso bar and ice cream shop in the farm store, and the farm bar is located in the greenhouse. After chasing toddlers all day, drooping parents will appreciate a made-to-order espresso with locally roasted coffee from Café DArte. For the kids, theres Umpqua ice cream, which the staff also serves in milkshakes and smoothies made with fresh fruit.
French Prairie Gardens is especially happy to offer local wine, beer and cider. Sip a glass of pinot gris from Lady Hill Winery just down the road, or try a cider from Bend or a craft beer from Astoria before ordering a growler to go. At the moment, the bonus tap is Bloops, a blueberry wheat beer from Ordnance Brewing in Boardman, Oregon. We take pride in helping promote local breweries and cideries! said Albert Meza, who lines up breweries for festivals and for the bar. We are thankful for their support for our Berries, Brews, & BBQs Festival and our 5k Race, and are always looking for more!
You can also sample beers at Junes Berries, Brews & BBQs festival, and in September at the Fight For Your Life 5K. Proceeds from both go to the Ems Fight Foundation, which the Pohlschneider family started in memory of Emily Pohlschneider Edwards, who passed away from cancer. To sign up for the race on September 25, visit FightForYourLife5k.com.

Replacement parts are a significant part of your repair estimate. Its tempting to select the cheapest version, but that can negatively affect the appearance or value of your vehicle.
Whenever possible, Darrel chooses to work with brand new, original equipment (OE) parts, made by the automobile manufacturer to the vehicles specifications. These parts might be expensive, but for some vehicles, they may be the only option. Newer models, such as anything manufactured in 2015, might not have used parts available.
If new OE parts are prohibitively expensive--either for the customer or the insurance company--Darrel may go with aftermarket parts or used OE parts. Aftermarket parts are made by independent companies and have not been sourced from the manufacturer. Theyre less expensive, but they can be problematic. Quality can vary, and parts that have not been sourced through the manufacturer might not fit properly.
Used OE parts that have been cleaned, rebuilt or reconditioned are another option. Darrel works with reputable sources to obtain the best possible used parts. Customers should always feel free to bring up their questions. Ultimately, Darrels goal is to make sure that the customer has the best part for their price point.
Aftermarket parts might not be my first choice, but they work for people, Darrel said. For example, for a customer comes in and says, My son has been in an accident and I dont want to spend a lot of money. Everything I do is tailored to the customer so we can stay within budget.

Fun family get-togethers, trips to the beach, backyard barbecues, vacations and other festivities make summer one of the most enjoyable times of the year. But when you plan your summer activities keep this advice in mind.
Our aging population is more active today. Experts tell us that as we age our bodies cant handle the heat like they did when we were younger. A senior body often doesnt detect the heat and will not begin sweating until their body temperature has skyrocketed and our bodys cooling devices dont operate as efficiently as we age.
And thats what makes heat so dangerous for older adults. More people in the United States die from extreme heat every year than from hurricanes, lightning, tornadoes, floods and earthquakes combined and nearly half of all heat fatalities were individuals past the age of 70, according to the National Weather Service.
By taking some common-sense approaches to staying cool and hydrated, seniors can spend quality time with family and friends outdoors.
Slow down. Avoid strenuous activity. If you must do strenuous activity, do it during the coolest part of the day.
Stay indoors as much as possible. Try to go to a public building with air conditioning each day for several hours or designated cooling shelters. Wear lightweight, light-colored clothing. Drink plenty of water regularly and often, even if you do not feel thirsty. Avoid drinks with alcohol or caffeine in them. Eat small meals and eat more often.
Todd Barth says Home Instead Senior Care is about keeping our seniors safe. Educating our seniors on how to stay cool during the hottest months of the year is important to us. If you want to know the top 10 ways to keep seniors cool, call Home Instead.

Dr. Wendy Abraham, owner of Sherwood Aesthetic Medicine addresses a few of the misconceptions surrounding this popular procedure.
Myth #1: Its expensive. People are pleasantly surprised that its not as expensive as they think, Dr. Abraham commented. To treat what many refer to as crows feet (smile lines) is less than $200 at her office and opens the eye area while allowing patients to retain normal expressions and range of movement. At her year-round price of $9 per unit, patients can plan ahead.
Myth #2: Youll look frozen or surprised. Results with Botox® are injector dependent, says Dr. Abraham, meaning that poor results or a frozen appearance can usually be avoided by choosing an experienced physician. As an injector, I liken the way I use Botox® to the way I season a dish when cooking I season to taste so I dont overdo it. When I apply that mentality to administering Botox® I think of it as Botox® to taste. That way, we use the least amount of product possible with results that look natural.
These are just a couple of the myths about Botox®. At her next free event, to be held on Tuesday, August 9 at 5:30 p.m., Dr. Abraham will discuss all of them. In addition to enjoying a beverage and light snack, attendees will receive a special offer at this fun and informal Q & A session. Please RSVP to (503) 610-1194.

Every time I watch the British Open, I am amazed at how crisply the best in the world strike the golf ball off very tight turf. On links courses, the grass is very fine and the ball sits on sandy soil under the grass. The ball doesnt sit up as it does on our lush turf, which requires a downward strike with the club head. When executed properly, players exercise total control over the golf ball. When its not, the results are ugly.
To create this strike, you must understand how the club head moves through the impact zone. As the club head comes toward the ball, it moves down, bottoms out somewhere close to impact, and then moves up and away from the ground. To strike the ball solidly, especially on tight lies, the low point must be one to two inches on the target side of the ball. Most amateurs aim for a low point even withor worse, behindthe ball.
To achieve a proper low point, change your focus during your swing. Instead of looking at the ball, look at a spot one or two inches in front of the ball. Swing through to that point and let the ball get in the way. At address, move the ball back one inch to help set up the downward strike. These two adjustments will get your hands to lead the club head through impact. That is the key to hitting solid iron shots, especially off tight or bare lies.

No visit to the farm is complete without a stop in the bakery. Karren Pohlschneider and her daughters Katey and Stacy turn out a variety of fresh-baked goods every day, using farm produce and family recipes.
Through the summer and clear through September, the bakery will have an abundance of berries, zucchini and stone fruit with which to make their pies, muffins, scones and breads. One of their most popular seasonal offerings is the blackberry-peach pie. The crust is made from scratch, from a recipe that has been in the Pohlschneider family for fifty or sixty years. We use local butter and local eggs, said Karren. Absolutely everything is local, if not right from the farm.
Other seasonal goods include their zucchini bread with blackberries and blueberries; triple-berry pies with either a regular crust top, or crumb topping; peach, blueberry and blackberry scones; and five different kinds of cookies. Because it wouldnt be fair if anyone had to skip dessert, they also offer gluten-free and sugar-free options on request.
You can order a bakery basket from the farm, which will provide you with a weekly basket of breads, scones, cookies and pies for eighteen weeks. A typical basket might include a pie, a zucchini bread and two coffee cakes, and it can be delivered or picked up weekly. CSA customers can also add a bakery item to their harvest box, or even add a large pie every week.
Of course, one of the best ways to sample everything the bakery has to offer is to stop in yourself. But for more information, inquiries or wholesale orders, call Karren at (503) 633-8445.

As Baby Boomers, we continue to live up to our reputation of being the generation of change. From the creation of the suburbs, the rebirth of the feminist movement, Rock n Roll, civil rights movements, political revolts, social and economic protests, to lavishing ourselves and our children to an extent not experienced in the prior generation - we have done it all! So it makes perfect sense that our ideas, values and goals for retirement would be unique from those generations who have gone before us.
For some of our parents, retirement was synonymous with aging and decline, but the Baby Boomers are having none of it! For those who have taken the time to plan, they are discovering that retirement affords an opportunity to enjoy new adventures and to rebrand themselves into whatever they want to be and to do. We do not see ourselves sitting on the proverbial porch, in our rocking chairs, reminiscing about the glory days of yester year. No, we have a new purpose and are determined to spend our next 20-25-30 years enjoying this new chapter. We have embraced change all through our life and we are recreating the face of retirement like every other life stage we have pushed through thus far.

One way to look at substance abuse is to look at the process as starting a relationship. At the start, casual encounters with someone new leave you with pleasant emotions and a desire for connectedness. An emotional bond forms between the user and the drug.
As the individual begins to develop a dependent relationship on the drug, the individual develops addiction goggles, a term which Ive adapted from the beer goggles expression. The individual begins to see the consequences of the drug in their life through these goggles. Just like with any important relationship, the individual protects the drug from criticism.
The individual excuses negative consequences as being caused by some other person, event or circumstance. For example: That DUI was not because I drank too much, It was because the police were out to get me! In my clinical process, clients have told me that the problem with their use was that others had a problem with it.
As long as the individual wears the goggles, they will always seek the good times, and ignore the bad ones. The excuses and rationalizations will frustrate those around the individual, which will reinforce how the individual sees the drug. This will lead the individual to avoid those who do not share his or her same viewpoint.
The key to achieving recovery lies, in part, in removing the goggles and seeing this relationship with the drug for what it really is: An all-consuming pattern of destruction that seeks to ultimately terminate the individual either intellectually, emotionally, spiritually, or physically.

Did you know that if you head out of the area on vacation and use your debit card at a restaurant, store or gas station, the transaction could be blocked? Thats because the card companies fraud protection networks use behavioral algorithms to detect unusual activities (such as traveling out of your typical area) then flag the card to protect you. A call is then is placed to you to verify whether you are indeed using your card; if youve only given the bank your home or work number, or you dont answer the call to your cell phone, all future transactions may be blocked as well. Here are a few tips to make traveling easier in the future:
Provide your cell number to your branch office so its associated with your debit card
Research & enter the phone numbers below into your contacts so you know its your debit or credit card Fraud Office trying to reach you to verify transactions. For Premier Community Bank the call can come from either of these two numbers: 1-800-279-2674 or 1-800-262-2024.
If you plan to travel out of the country, provide your branch office your travel dates and itinerary so that transactions you make while in those specific foreign countries wont be blocked.
If possible when traveling out of your area, stop at an ATM to withdraw cash. Using your card and PIN number together generally indicates that it is really you using your card.
Inspect the card reader slot by pulling on it to see if a skimming device has been attached.
Place your hand to cover the PIN pad so that your PIN cant be seen by another individual or a hidden camera.
