3 Tips To Improve Your Desk...

I hear these questions often. “How can I improve my posture?” Or “How can I improve my desk posture?” I’ve been hearing them even more frequently since COVID began. The workforce in the United States went from commuting to offices to suddenly working from home, so it's no surprise. The term “home office” should be taken with a grain of salt these days. I’ve treated patients that come in with back pain, neck pain, and shoulder pain. When I ask them what they use for a home office setup, the answers are astonishing! Who knew that a bean bag chair...

4 Tips For Getting Back Into...

After a strange summer that included social distancing, quarantining, and hoarding huge amounts of toilet paper, the last few months in school have taken some getting used to. A less active lifestyle probably included among the adjustments. With a new school year comes more physical engagement. Sports and extracurricular activities have begun, but since late winter, life for most has been far from active. Many people have been spending their days inactive, sedentary, and staring at screens.  Kids’ bodies are not immune to injury. There’s a misconception that they can return directly into intense physical activity without risking injury. Of course,...

What Brings You to MOSS? Common...

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.

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...

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?
