Reaching up to the top shelf to grab your favorite mug. Holding the back of the passenger seat while you reverse the car into the driveway. Lifting up hay bales, bags of fertilizer, and saddles. Pitching a softball. Reaching to press the snooze button one more time. What do all of these things have in common? Shoulder movement.

Knee Surgery Recovery & Prevention: How...

Knee surgery is one of the most common bone-related surgical procedures in the United States. As a result, MOSS has seen hundreds of patients looking to prevent the need for surgery, prepare themselves for surgery, or recover from surgery. Many of these patients come to me confused as to why they are still dealing with knee pain they hoped would be relieved by surgery. Or, patients don’t understand why they should see me here at MOSS before and after they get surgery. Our specialists feel so much empathy for these patients. It’s easy to empathize: these people are in pain...

Knee Pain Treatment & Relief: Know...

Knee pain is something that many of us experience (over a quarter of us, to be exact)...  but for some reason, many people don’t know that there are knee pain treatment methods besides surgery and intense pain killers. Surgery and pain medications have their place in knee pain relief, sure. But there are many other methods that you can use to strengthen your muscles, increase your mobility, reduce pain, and correct any compensatory movements you’ve made to continue your daily activities. In my years of physical therapy work, I’ve seen people develop limps, change their walking gait, and even stop...

Frequent knee pain affects over 25 percent of the adult population with studies showing a significant increase in knee-related pain & surgeries in recent history.  Knee pain can result in a laundry list of problems in daily life. Because our knees are imperative to our movement and mobility, knee problems can make it difficult to sleep, drive, work, walk, or even get out of bed in the morning (physically and emotionally!).  Can you relate to some of these problems? Have you found that your work and/or personal life has been affected by your knee pain? Are you or a loved...

Neck Injury and Neck Surgery Recovery...

I constantly see people wanting an instant fix for their neck pain. Many patients think that going right to surgery is going to be a magical cure-all for them. Or, they think that there’s a single neck pain treatment they can get to instantly solve their problems. I feel so much empathy for these patients who come to me post-op or post-injury confused as to why they’re still dealing with such pain. It’s easy for people to get discouraged with injury after injury, flare up after flare up, and continued pain & discomfort post-surgery. We’re going to be honest right...

Neck Pain Treatments & Relief: Know...

Years ago, I was visiting my family in San Antonio and I noticed something peculiar about my dad. About every 30-45 minutes he was constantly moving his neck up and down, side to side and in circles.  I asked what he was doing and he said, “Oh, just stretching my neck.” I let this go on for a while but then started talking with him about why his neck felt tight and if he had any pain. He tried to brush it off like it was nothing but clearly it was bothering him.  The next day we went to grab...
