We consulted with Dr. Bryan Lang of Whole Body Health Physical Therapy and asked him whether he could devise some exercises that could be beneficial to our creative audience, especially as we are all transitioning to working environments that are different from our regular ones (anyone else working at their kitchen tables during the shelter-at-home time?)
Dr. Lang immediately produced this series of short videos that won’t take more than a few minutes, and can have a powerful beneficial impact on your personal health and comfort. “I think that physical therapy (and I know I’m biased) is one of the most underutilized health providers with some of the best tools to help people with their musculoskeletal aches and pains. If physical therapy as a profession can have more opportunities to share our knowledge with people all around the world, we can create some serious change for a lot of people.”

About Dr. Bryan Lang
Bryan Lang attended Oregon State University as an undergraduate where he received a Bachelors of Science in general science with an emphasis in pre-physical therapy and a double minor in psychology and chemistry. He received his Doctorate in Physical Therapy with distinction at Pacific University in Forest Grove, Oregon. Soon after, he also finished his MHA at Pacific University and is now adjunct faculty at the school teaching the business administration class for the Doctor of Physical Therapy program.
After successful completion of the Doctorate of Physical Therapy (DPT), Bryan continued to expand his knowledge of the human body and health care. He became certified as a strength and conditioning specialist (CSCS) from the National Strength and Conditioning Association, completed a Masters of Healthcare Administration (MHA), and became a member of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA). He is currently in the process of completing the National Institute of Orthopedic Manual Therapy coursework to become a Level 2 NAIOMT graduate. He more recently received his Orthopedic Certified Specialist (OCS) certification, demonstrating excellence in research-based diagnostics and treatment.
Bryan has spent the majority of his clinical experience in outpatient orthopedics with an emphasis in chronic pain. However, he has also worked in skilled nursing facilities to provide geriatric care. The dual experience in these settings has allowed Bryan to learn effective therapeutic techniques for patients of all ages and with varying needs.
Bryan was the sole recipient of the Pacific University Outstanding Service to the School of Physical Therapy Award in 2013 for his involvement in community programs designed to provide services citizens in need of healthcare.
