Laser Focus to the Rescue!

Last week we discussed some of the most important elements of recovery. This week we’d like to shed some light on one of the services we offer here at MOSS that can benefit recovery immensely: the deep tissue laser. Whether you’re experiencing a twinge in your low back, muscle knots, or uncomfortable pressure on your knee, our deep tissue laser may be able to ease your pain and help to soothe the inflamed area.  If you’re skeptical about the word ‘laser’ being mentioned in regards to treatment, go ahead and click HERE to read more about it, why we invested...

…And the Rest is History

Last week we talked about one super important and complex joint in our bodies: the Knee And knowing that the knee is the most complex joint in our bodies, that must mean that a lot can go down hill if we get injured or cause inflammation to that joint, right? Right.  So what do you do?  Rest.  The first thing you can do for yourself to ease your pain now and help your body heal is to slow down and rest.  For many of us it can be difficult to slow down, it’s much too easy to get sucked into...

3 Things you KNEEd to know

Do you suffer from knee pain? Even if you don’t, you probably know somebody who does.  Knee pain affects roughly twenty-five percent of the population, which may not seem like a lot, but those statistics mean that knee pain is the main complaint of four million individuals and is the reason for a visit to their  primary care physician.  Knee pain can not only be obnoxious but can inhibit your ability to do the things that you enjoy, and many things that are a part of everyday life.  Squatting down to get something under the kitchen sink, walking the dog,...

The Summer of Balance

With temps in the high nineties this week, Texas summer is officially upon us. Regardless of how you feel about the Texas heat, there’s probably something about summer you like! Family vacations, seeing your kids or grandkids more, barbeques, pool time, lake days, and a plethora of other summertime activities!  All of these things are great but maybe you feel more limited than you want to.  We have covered all sorts of balance this past month.  From new ways to challenge yourself (balance board, anyone?) and unusual ways balance affects us, all the way to last week’s post about nutritional...

Balance in the Kitchen

We’ve been talking about balance a lot here, and the many ways it affects our day to day lives. We don’t just want to provide you with a quick fix solution, here at MOSS, we want to provide you with information that empowers you to really know your body. This week, we’re talking about balance in a less literal sense, and a more metaphorical one.  Nutritional balance. What is it? How do you find it? How do you maintain it? First question: What is it?  Nutritional balance is referring to what kind of fuel you’re providing your body with and...

Get ‘On-Board’ With Balance

Have you ever seen something and thought that you would be really, really good at it? And then you try it, and it’s not pretty? Me too, in fact, I bet that most people you know would say they’ve had a similar experience. One of those things for me, was a balance board.  For those of you that haven’t experienced one of these, a balance board is essentially a piece of wooden board with two guard pieces on either end of the underside. This is to keep it from sliding completely off the wooden cylinder that it is balanced on....

The Chain of Command

Does Your Body Know Who's in Charge? If you complain about having balance issues, back pain and general weakness, you’re not alone. Though that probably isn’t a surprise if you’ve been following along with us for a while now, here’s something that might be:  Your problems do not come from where you think they do. Not for the most part anyways. Many people will come in and tell us they have knee pain, low back pain, general muscle tightness or weakness but so often there is a long pause when asked “why do you think you struggle with that?”. There...

Do You Have a Fragile Core?

As an avid cyclist I love watching the pro’s race. To the uninformed it looks like a bunch of guys riding around on their bikes without much organization but to those who watch the sport regularly know there is a method to the madness.   Cycling actually has teams (similar to football), and each team member has a job to do. Some are supporting cast members (like linemen) and others are the stars (quarterback or star running back).  The cycling supporting cast members (called domestiques) are responsible for protecting the main rider by helping him stay out of trouble and making...

“Well…it’s another day for another day!”

This is a little late but what is the saying? Better late than never and if you know my next character you will know that being late is part of who he is.  We often joke that he will be late to his own funeral.  This is the first time I get to present a physical therapist assistant, Joseph Marcum.    Joseph plays a key role in the delivery of your physical therapy care. As an assistant he works to carry out the plan you and your Physical Therapist have developed and to use his knowledge and insights to help you...

Wood He Return To His Hobby?...

Today we highlight a client who suffered with some intense shoulder pain and severe limitations.   As an electrician he had to work overhead and lift heavy objects but was not able to. The most frustrating thing was that he was not able to participate in his hobby, wood working.  His goal was to be able to return to work and woodworking, including the ability to lift overhead and be able to create masterpieces out of wood.   Today I want to introduce you to Joe. Joe is a very likable guy and always had a smile on his face, even when...
