Town's 2021 Community Survey
The second annual holiday fireworks display caused fires at each of the three launch sites in the county. Firefighters at the sites were able to get those grass fires under control before they threatened any buildings.
Residents are invited to take a short Follow-Up questionnaire on topics of interest raised by the Town’s 2021 Survey. The website allows visitors to learn more about the survey results, explore hot topics raised, and provide additional feedback.

THE HEAT IS ON
A year and a half ago, Jillian and Jim were in the COVID lockdown along with everyone else. One day Jillian noticed a Facebook post about a new infra-red workout studio called HOTWORX opening in the local area. She was intrigued and started doing some research. Jillian has been interested in various types of ways to improve overall health and fitness. The uniqueness of the HOTWORX Infra-Red workout regimen was very enticing. After the lockdown was lifted, she visited the only open HOTWORX studio for a workout and was immediately hooked. They had been looking for an opportunity to leave the corporate world behind as well as serve them into their retirement years and have more time for their grandchildren and travel. Franchising has always been an avenue that excited them both. The HOTWORX franchise structure seemed to be the perfect fit for them. They then began pursuing the purchase of a HOTWORX studio franchise in the Parker area and opened in the Fall of 2021. The business is thriving and growing rapidly. They have 8 saunas in their facility. Each sauna can accommodate up to 3 people at a time. There are a total of 10 different workout options for members. Each sauna is equipped with a TV that broadcasts a virtual instructor for each of the workouts. These play on a continuous loop. Members can sign up for a session up to 3 days in advance. HOTWORX is a virtually-instructed exercise program created for users to experience the many benefits of infrared heat absorption, while completing a 30-minute Isometric workout or 15-minute High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) session. As the infrared heat penetrates your body causing you to sweat, the isometric postures further accelerate detoxification by physically removing the toxins from your organs through muscle contraction. Some of the benefits from working out with infrared energy! • • • • • • • •
Detoxification Muscle Recovery and Cellular Joint Repair Improved Circulation Increased Calorie Burn (30% more than other heated exercise) Pain Relief Lowers Blood Pressure Weight Loss Improved Immunity
JANUARY 2022 13
Science backs up the theory behind using infrared energy during workouts to increase their effectiveness. Infrared workouts are shown to improve blood flow, optimize oxygen to organs, and accelerate metabolism. According to the National Institutes of Health, the use of infrared saunas can strengthen the immune system, improve immune response, reduce stress, and improve sleep. The detoxification process is also shown to improve skin tone and increase collagen and human growth hormone production. Further proof is offered right on your phone. Participants have access to an app that counts the number of calories you’re burning not only during your class, but afterward as well. All HOTWORX locations have 24-hour access, 7 days a week. When you become a member, you receive a code to get into the building and you download an app for your phone to schedule your workout times. It is extremely convenient and easy to do. There are approximately 300 open franchises across the country. With an additional 700 franchises sold, but not open yet! If you travel often, you can upgrade your membership to include use at any location. More locations are “popping” up all the time!

Destination: Transformation How private gyms can help you achieve your New Year’s Resolutions BY PATRICK NOLAN, Owner of Pivotal Sports Performance
It’s January. That means a lot of people are making their New Year’s resolutions, which frequently revolve around health, fitness goals, and behavioral changes. According to new research conducted by OnePoll, it takes just 32 days for the average American to break their resolution, and 68% report giving up before that. The biggest reason for breaking resolutions is lack of self-discipline. Inclusive, niche gyms have been on the rise since the pandemic. Big gyms have had trouble re-opening due to stringent restrictions, while smaller gyms can be nimble and get creative with workouts and training their clients. This has led to a lot of people making the switch to smaller gyms. Private facilities offer a sense of community over big gyms. As members at a private facility slowly get to know one another, they start to form a new family, sharing a bond in those training sessions around similar goals. These goals can be to lose weight, get faster, or prepare for an upcoming season/event. The power of community has a huge influence at our facility, Pivotal Sports Performance. We see timid middleschool athletes to busy adults signed up for one time a week, switch to two or three times a week because they want to get more involved in the “community.” With private facilities forming these communities, the result is accountability! When you start training with the same group of people on a weekly basis, a natural sense of accountability starts to form as they become part of your team. You do not want to let them down. Even when you are tired, busy etc., you end up finding a way to make sure you do not miss your workout because you do not want to let down your “workout family.” 16 SEARCHPARKER
When you are being held accountable, it can force you to stay on track longer and stay consistent. When you reach consistency, you form behavioral changes that lead to healthier habits throughout your life–not just in the gym. Therefore, the consistency makes it easier to last longer than 32 days and keep those New Year’s resolutions going for the long haul! So not only does showing up to workouts help you get closer to your fitness goals, but your actions outside the gym start to change. The way you shop at the grocery store, the restaurants you go to, the choices you make when you are out, are among a long list of other behavior changes that form into new habits when you stay consistent and diligent. We love to see behavioral changes when our clients at Pivotal send us pictures of their breakfast or them doing extra work outside of the gym walls. And when you form these new habits and stay consistent with your workouts, the ultimate prize occurs: RESULTS! Social media and false advertisements will talk about all types of results that can happen in two weeks with supplements or fad diets. It is not true, nor is it going to help long term health goals. So, if you truly want to stick to your New Year’s resolution, finding a small gym and becoming part of their community is going to hold you accountable and create consistency leading into long term RESULTS! We would love to see you at Pivotal Sports Performance and become part of our community! We have training options for every age and level!

Speeding Up Wound Healing Hyperbaric Medicine is like a breath of (Highly Oxygenated) fresh air
Hyperbaric medicine has been most commonly used to help scuba divers recover from the decompression sickness (the bends). It has also been found to help wound healing, carbon monoxide poisoning, skin grafts, and thermal burns. Michael Bertocchi, MD, general surgeon and medical director of the Wound Care Center at Parker Adventist Hospital, is excited about the opportunity to use this technology to provide comprehensive care to patients suffering from chronic wounds. The Wound Care Center at Parker Adventist Hospital is a joint effort between Parker Hospital and Healogics, a national corporation that runs over 500 wound centers nationwide. One of the big attractions of the Center is the addition of hyperbaric oxygen therapy. Through hyperbaric oxygen therapy, “a patient is pressurized in an atmosphere of 100% oxygen,” says Bertocchi. “And what that does is allow oxygen to diffuse directly into the injured tissue and increase the oxygen tension at that level. This markedly improves the ability of compromised tissue (the wound) to heal -- and that’s pretty impressive.” The treatment takes place in a cylindrical chamber that is constructed of steel and clear acrylic so that the patient can see his or her surroundings during the entire 18 SEARCHPARKER
treatment. Making them much more at ease. "It’s similar to the effect of diving in the ocean anywhere from 30 to 60 feet in depth,” says Bertocchi. The sensation might take a little getting used to, especially the pressure changes in the ears. But, prior to treatment, patients are taught how to relieve any discomfort. To ensure safety, all Wound Care Center personnel undergo an intensive hyperbaric education and credentialing process. Typically, hyperbaric medicine patients will receive 20 to 30 treatments, sometimes more. Conditions typically treated by this therapy include osteomyelitis (bone infection), diabetic foot ulcer, complications of radiation therapy, compromised surgical grafting, and severe skin and muscle infections. The most common side effects include earaches, claustrophobia and, in diabetics, hypoglycemia. But the vast majority of patients, Bertocchi says, are able to tolerate the treatment very well. “Treating a chronic wound can be a prolonged and frustrating endeavor for many practicing physicians,” Bertocchi explains. “Having a comprehensive center where we can dedicate specialized treatments within evidence based algorithms will ensure superior healing and limb salvage rates.”

It is that time of year!! Are you daydreaming of a long vertical descent at your favorite ski resort? Well, you are not alone. Skis and snowboards are prepared for a season of groomed trails, dense powder, boundless terrain, and steep acres of pure blizzard. During this winter season, be knowledgeable and informed about injuries and illnesses related to snow sports that may hinder your opportunity to traverse the slopes. Skiing and snowboarding are physically demanding sports that apply tremendous tension and pressure on muscles, bones, ligaments, and tendons throughout the body. It is critical to know the health essentials for snow sports. Vigorous activities, such as snowboarding and skiing, require a well-conditioned body. This entails aerobic exercising, strength training, and improving flexibility. A great season without injury can be accomplished by incorporating 30-60 minute workouts three to six times a week that involve a form of aerobic exercise (e.g. running, walking, swimming, cycling, and stair-climbing), strength/anaerobic training (e.g. weight lifting and sprints), and activities for flexibility (stretching, yoga, and pilates). Prevention is mastered during the off season.
BREAK-IN THOSE BOOTS, NOT THOSE BONES. Tips from our friends at 20 Mile Urgent Care and Family Medicine
Risk is associated with all physical sports. It is important to understand that injury/illness can strike the most athletic competitor. For skiers and snowboarders, the most common injuries/illnesses are related to the intensity of the sport, environment, mechanics of the activity, athletic conditioning, and a participant’s response to a problem. A majority of snowboarding injuries tend to involve the upper extremities. The biomechanics of snowboarding involve a balance between stability and gravity. An imbalance can lead to a fractured wrist, rotator cuff tear, and/or shoulder dislocation. As for skiers, the agility and motion required of the sport renders the lower extremities more susceptible to injury. In fact, many injuries involve the knee, such as anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears and meniscus damage. Some common injuries/illnesses observed in both activities include: concussion, neck strain, shoulder separation, fractured clavicle, muscular strains, ligamentous sprains, lower back pain due to herniated disc, frost bite and hypothermia. To protect your body from injury, use the following guidelines: 1. Dress appropriately for winter sports 2. Wear wrist guards, a helmet, knee brace/compression and other protective gear 3. Hydrate frequently; do not skip meals 4. Always be aware of yourself and your surroundings 5. Always know and abide by resort rules and regulations 6. In the instance of a problem or injury, do not hesitate to seek help; treatment begins with RICE (rest, ice, compression and elevation) A wonderful season is approaching. In the unfortunate chance of injury or illness, please do not hesitate to visit 20 Mile Urgent Care & Family Medicine. The office accepts walk-ins and appointments for all your health needs. Contact them at 720-974-7210 or www.20mileurgentcare.com. Located on the corner of 20 Mile Road and Parker Road.
