Get moving on that injury with this humorous guide to rehabilitation from the comfort of your home! Does it Hurt When I Do This? is designed to educate readers on the workings of the human body, how to keep it healthy, and how to prevent and rehabilitate injuries. In a light, humorous style that has endeared him to thousands of patients, Mark Salamon presents this “owner’s manual for the human body” in a logical order, starting with very basic concepts and progressing gradually to more complex ideas. His continual references back to the basics stem from his observations over twenty-five years of patients who were frustrated because their doctors or therapists had never explained them. With a better understanding of how the body’s different parts work together to protect itself from injury and repair itself if one occurs, readers learn how to care for all the parts together so injuries become less frequent and easier to fix. Guiding readers through hows and whys of rehabilitating injuries to specific body parts, starting with the feet and working up, Salamon emphasizes that this knowledge is meant to enhance, not replace, the reader’s relationship with their physical therapist and doctor. When poor insurance coverage or high co-pays limit the number of office visits, the knowledge gleaned from this work helps patients better understand how to enhance and stick with their home programs, and when to seek help when things are not improving as expected.

Enjoy this gentle and kind historical fantasy romance set in the magical community of Great Britain after the Great War. Thalia wants to make an impact. Thalia's life is full of artists, authors, and other creative minds, but she's barely keeping herself together. After yet another rejection of her writing, she's willing to keep an eye out on a remote home on the edge of Dartmoor while her reclusive great-aunt takes a rest cure. Adam hasn't been the same since the Great War. Adam's family have long since run out of tolerance for his continuing shell shock. His uncle's broken leg is the perfect excuse to get Adam out of the house - at least he can make himself useful fetching and carrying. Adam's not at all sure he can be any sort of help to anyone. When he visits his uncle's apple orchard, he's even more confused by what he finds - and no one else seems to find the late-ripening apples at all unusual. The house has its own secrets. At first, the house seems a pleasant enough retreat for Thalia. The housekeeper and maid are competent, if distant. The food is wonderful, and she didn't have to buy or cook it herself. But there's the odd noise from the attic, the locked rooms, the ageless photographs. When she meets Adam, they at least agree that something is odd. Can they discover the secret and change their futures? Mistress of Birds is the seventh book of the Mysterious Powers series, exploring the institutions of Albion during and after the Great War. All of Celia Lake's Albion books exploring the magical community of the British Isles can be read in any order. It is full of gothic mystery, feeling out of place, apples, birds, and how to move forward into a new stage of life. Enjoy this charming romantic fantasy set in 1927 with a happily ever after ending!

There are many books about overcoming obstacles, but this quintessential story of victory over limitations is unique. How many doctors have cerebral palsy? Not many. Yet this disability was part of the Great Physician’s plan for Tyler Sexton. Because of it, Tyler has become a role model for others facing adversity, including his patients. He has also become a humble healer who uses his heart and faith along with his intellect and training to help kids and give them hope. Tyler’s story has been featured on ABC’s 20/20 and was the basis for many episodes of ABC’s new show The Good Doctor. This is a story of a man who says, “I’d rather walk with a limp in Christ than with a strut in the world”; who wears superhero T-shirts and tells his little patients they’re “super” too, despite their physical problems; and whose stint at a medical school in the Caribbean completely erased the islanders’ negative view of disability. Through this inspiring true story, people will be encouraged to face adversity with hope, determination, and the strength of Christ.

In 1957, at the age of 9, Susan’s brother was in an adult unit – a unit treating very seriously ill mental patients. In 1985, Susan’s brother took delivery of an Aston Martin DBS. The intervening 28 years hold a remarkable story about a man who grew and prospered as a successful engineering professional, but started out as a dyslexic ‘slow starter’, unwanted by his mother and sister. This is based on a true history, a history that gives hope, a history that demonstrates how simple acts of kindness by friends and neighbours can help someone overcome tremendous handicaps, identity denial and family abuse to become a success both as a person and a parent. There is also a message about those who learn to abuse as children and continue that abuse into adulthood with their own children, and also about those in the extended family who turn a blind eye out of a misplaced sense of family loyalty. This book has some dark moments, but it is a book written to uplift.
