S3 E3 Dr. Sonia Lucas shares some Physical Therapy tips to prepare for the outdoors.

This week I'm speaking with Dr. Sonia Lucas PT, DPT. 

Originally from Oklahoma City, she's now living in Austin, Texas, and now her mission is to 'get more people out and active in nature". 

Her love for the outdoors started at an early age, and her passion now transcends to the trails, roads and lakes around Austin. She is really focused on that relationship between you and nature, and that's such a huge part of her work. 

Dr Lucas states in her bio, "When I began my transition into the world of physical therapy, I saw other physical therapists helping people to get out of pain and move better. I was inspired to do the same and do it in a way that celebrated the outdoors and healthy living". 

In our discussion I wanted to know a little bit more on how to prepare for different lengths of hikes, and other activities we can do to get our bodies ready for hitting the trail. 

She also gave some great tips on footwear, and a few simple exercises to get our bodies warmed up. 

If you'd like to learn more about what she does, give her a visit at her website: Active ATX Rehab & Wellness.

You can also find out more information on her Facebook page by the same name. Click this link:

For all of you listeners, she has three FREE e-books available to download.  You can learn about proper footwear, 10 tips to tackle pain, and 5 exercises to prepare for any hike.  Click the link above to see those as well. 

Please enjoy this week's episode.
