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...

Is Shoulder Pain Bothering You? –...

Having surgery can be a real pain, literally and figuratively.  Most people underestimate the challenges a major surgery poses to their life. Whether it is the time off of work, difficulty sleeping due to a restrictive sling or the precautions put in place to avoid destroying the work the surgeon just performed.  Most assume they can have shoulder surgery and be back to normal in a few weeks. This is rarely the case. The repaired tissue is just beginning to heal at this time and if stressed too early can lead to significant damage.  Placing you in a worse position...

A Little Known Option For Chronic...

For those that know me you know how much I love to ride my bike.  I have raced, ridden for fun and even rode from Oceanside California to Durango Colorado in 2 days and 8 hours as part of a 4 man relay team in 2018.  All of that time spent on the bike has its pros and cons.   Let me explain. Getting in a good amount of cardiovascular work is definitely healthier than not doing anything although I may take it to an extreme.  Getting fresh air and being able to clear my head helps me stay focused and...

Are You A Long Hauler?

Are you struggling to regain your strength and endurance after covid?  If yes, then you are not alone.  Here is a conversation I had with a former patient just the other day.  He stopped by to ask if there was anything he could do to regain his strength after being sick with one of the many variant forms of Covid circulating around.  He described himself as “weak as a kitten”, and had to ask his wife for help to do simple things around the house (I think he was a little embarrassed about this), and he has to take frequent...

Don’t Let Back Pain Wreck Your...

Today we highlight a client who has been with MOSS for several “rounds” of therapy for various conditions.  She is extremely active and wants to stay that way. She also understands that physical therapy is a “contact sport” and you have to work hard to get your desired results.  Her ultimate goal was to get back to gardening and yard work.  Today I want to introduce you to Sandy. She is very sweet and is probably one of the most proactive patients I have. When Sandy discovers an issue that doesn’t seem to be going away she gives us a...

The BIGGEST Mistake Low Back Pain...

If you or someone you know has back pain then this article is for you.  This is something very close to my heart as I have suffered with lower back pain through the years. My Dad and brother have also suffered with lower back pain which became so bad they both underwent dangerous surgery to try and fix their problem.  They live in San Antonio (where I grew up) and I felt guilty that I was not able to help them, but hopefully my 23+ years of experience can help you.   Fortunately my dad did okay after his surgery. I...

Team Work Makes The Dream Work

As mentioned before when we highlighted Tyla Haley , I am going to shine the light on some of my amazing team and give you a little insight into what they do and some of their personality traits.  This month I present another rock star for Moss Rehabilitation Center, Kim Hilton.   Unlike Tyla, Kim sits front and center and is one of your first points of contact upon entering and leaving our facility. You have no doubt talked to her whether you have called in to schedule or during the checkout process.  Kim is very busy throughout the day answering...
