“When your luck is battin’ zero, get your chin up off the floor. Mister, you can be a hero. You can open any door. There’s nothin’ to it, but to do it You’ve gotta have Heart! Miles and miles and miles of Heart! Oh, it’s fine to be a genius of course! But keep that ol’ horse before the cart! First you’ve got to have Heart!” –Richard Adler
Why have I been singing this song all week, because I have heart? I would have to say yes. Could I use more? Sure and also because that’s the song that my son will sing for his audition to one of the high schools on his list for next year…so we have been singing it for days.

“When the odds are sayin’ you’ll never win, that’s when the grin to meet the challenge should start!”
I sure don’t start grinning when I hear the odds say that “I’ll never win” and I recently was definitely hearing that message in my head just a mere three to four weeks prior to that powerful storm hitting New York, so both of those two events combined motivated the hell out of me to get out there, express myself more than ever and live in the moment, saying “Present!” to the world at all times.
Aracelli and I have already repeatedly heard the odds say “You’ll never win” on and off for years in our physical therapy industry and I can tell you that it is just an old, scratched record that plays every so often as a reminder more than for your entertainment or when you try something new. With the quality of highly effective therapy we provide here at Southwest Physical Therapy, you will instantly be empowered to trade in your old messages for new ones like, “I got this; I will get through this.”
We have been walking through our fears for years on our own personal journeys to open our hearts even before we opened our clinic, for that is our nature. Everything – all the vast, useful experience – we’ve learned in that time we transmit into your treatments because we know that when negative things build up and accumulate you feel confusion, uncertainty, unconfidence, physical pain and you lose touch with your self. We have plenty of tips for you as we sort through your own vintage recordings of assorted varieties of “I can’t…” messages to get you to where you want to be.
The therapies we perform here could very well be called CPR, Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation…, for as we reactivate your heart you trade in your old recordings for new positive empowering ones like, “I can…”
Indeed, when you’re in unbearable, paralyzing pain the last thing you are thinking about is your heart because it is likely buried in layers of compacted unexpressed emotions, agonies, fears, anxieties, stress, discomfort and tensions, that have been trapped and buried in your body and building up for years… though I suspect your wise ticker and destiny lead you to us.
At some point you gather enough courage and fortitude to say, “I’m mad as hell and I can’t or won’t take this any more!” so your heart sends out a distress signal and we bounce back our coordinates to you. After a series of successful treatments you realize that the pain or the symptoms you were feeling was just your body’s way of telling you something that you weren’t interpreting…how could you hear your heart without some CPR?
