We all want to live a healthy life.
But sometimes events in our life happen that prevent us from being able to get around and stay physically fit.
From sitting too much to being weekend warriors, we sometimes have pain or dizziness and it’s not fun!
Perhaps you’ve been experiencing pain or dizziness and have been sent from one health care professional to another to find the answer to why. Tests are done and the end result is the same – you are still in pain or stay dizzy all the time.
The fact is that the earlier you can see
a physical therapist in the acute stage of your pain or injury or dizziness the better the outcome. I hear stories of people who had surgery for a disc that could have been resolved through specialized exercises. Or people who have lived with dizziness because they were told “it’s just part of getting older”.
Don’t wait. You have a choice. Ask for physical therapy. And yes, good news, you can see a physical therapist without a referral for up to 15 days (if they have a DPT and fellowship).
We provide you a comprehensive examination and craft an individualized exercise program that works for you.
    Brandeis Volleyball Returns To The Court Ready To Compete
By Alissa Reinhard
T his year’s Varsity Brandeis Volleyball team will be led by its returners – 13 in total, seven of them seniors. And although this season will certainly be unlike any other, the team, led by Coach Madeline Williams, will still keep
the same goals in sight.
“We have had to look through a
somewhat different lens this year, changing up a few things,” Coach Williams explained. “But we are still pursuing our goals, just in a different way.”
COVID-19 delayed the start of both 5A and 6A high school volleyball by about a month. Although there have been protocol adjustments, the team has persevered and remained positive.
“They have not complained one bit,”
Coach Williams said. “I think we are just all so happy to be around each other, it didn’t matter what we had to do to get to this point, we were going to get it done.
In addition to the returning varsity players, the team is also adding a strong group of new faces.
“We are super excited to see how the year will go,” Coach Williams stated. “Our main goal at this point is to do everything we can to keep playing and then to tackle our new district with our best game of volleyball. Staying positive through this helps the players understand that we will get through this and to be thankful that we are together and on the court playing volleyball.”

     Brandeis Golf Prepares To Tee Off
September 19 against one of their biggest district rivals, Clark, and walked away victorious, sweeping the Cougars in the best-of-five series with scores of 25-22,
Welton explained “But they are dedicated to helping support our kids which we very much appreciate.”
The 2020-2021 school year marks Coach Welton’s ninth year of coaching. And although this may be the most challenging one yet, his reasons behind coaching have never wavered.
31-29 and 25-18. The victory ended Clark’s 47-match district streak.

A s the school year continues and we all adjust to new protocols and safety measures against COVID-19, more and more student-athletes are returning to the football field, basketball court and golf course. In fact, at Brandeis High School, the golf team is welcoming more new players in one year than ever
“It comes at a unique time, but it’s pretty
exciting,” said Head Golf Coach Jim Welton. “Eighteen of our top 20 graduated last year, so it’s great to see so many new faces coming in. They bring a lot of enthusiasm. It’s just really fun and I can’t wait to get out there and tee it up.”
The new team will have a lot to live up to. The graduating Class of 2020 included standouts like Emma McMyler who is now playing Division I Golf for Xavier and Carson Hunsucker who helped lead the Broncos to a district championship and now plays at University of Houston. However, Coach Welton has high hopes for both his new and returning athletes.
“Some of our juniors and seniors who were behind the Class of 2020 now have the opportunity to show what they can do,” Coach Welton explained.
Coach Welton and Brandeis athletic leadership have worked hard to coordinate a plan for the season that will keep athletes safe. Unlike other sports that practice and compete in Northside ISD owned facilities, the golf team must co-exist with the public, training at public golf courses.
“We are blessed to have wonderful golf facilities who have worked hard to support high school golf and gone out of their way to accommodate us,” said Coach Welton.
Many of the courses have experienced record-breaking business during the pandemic. The unprecedented number of golfers out on the course has presented a few challenges for high school teams who also need access.
“The courses are balancing accommodating their full price paying customers with our schedule, in addition to three or four other high schools,” Coach
“When you
extracurriculars and athletics, you are working with kids who have selected to do that activity because they wat to be there,” he explained. “You see them out there, achieving, trying their best, picking themselves up. To me, that’s so rewarding.”
