Top Questions About Your Knee Pain:...

In a previous blog post I have pointed out that knee pain affects over 25% of adults, and many of these people wind up having surgery to try and fix the problem. We have also discussed options to avoid surgery if possible HERE.  Today I want to cover some of the most frequently asked questions I get regarding knee pain. I am pulling back the curtain and opening the vault (Seinfeld reference), I hope this helps.  Q: How long is it going to take?  A: Ultimately it depends on you and your goal or goals.  AT MOSS Rehabilitation Center we...

Be Flexible Like Gumby

Search the web and you will find thousands of “stretching” programs from various sources. But how do you choose the best one?  In this post I will discuss the best way to improve your flexibility without causing great injury or harm.  The first question to ask is what are you trying to improve or avoid?  Some want to simply move better and they know that what they are doing is not working, others want to avoid that dull achy pain they get from sitting all day and want to be proactive. That is a good thing.  Are you trying to...

The 2 Things You Must Do...

Let’s talk about your knee pain for a bit: this is one of the most common problems that we see in our office In fact, in our most recent blog  (What You Need To Know Before You Get That New Knee) we pointed out how frequent knee pain affects over 25% of adults, and many of these people wind up having surgery to try and fix the problem. I can personally attest to the headaches that come from having knees that hurt; years of sports gave me some injuries that have even affected me for years afterward.  The knee joint...

Painting A Picture of Health

I want to introduce you to Jody.  Jody is a local artist who is not a stranger to MOSS Rehabilitation Center. This is now her second time coming to us for her knee.  Earlier in the year we got her rolling along following an incident with a suitcase and escalator while she was traveling.  Most recently she tweaked her knee helping her aging parents. This increased the pain and stiffness in her knee.  With her goal of avoiding surgery and preferring the natural, drug free healing method at MOSS she came back in for a tune-up. “A healthy man has...

Fuel Your Day; Food As Medicine

Do you ever find yourself hungry, looking for food in the refrigerator or pantry but don’t have any luck? Or do you find something to eat but it just doesn’t sound satisfying? Food for a lot of us is therapeutic. Both in a mental sense but also in a physical sense.  Food is fuel...plain and simple, but what type of food you consume has a major effect on your health. In other words it is medicine! Now don’t get me wrong, I have said it in the past and I will say it again today, I love junk food. Brownies...

What You Need To Know Before...

One of the most common orthopedic surgeries these days is a Total Knee Arthroplasty (TKA), otherwise known as a “knee replacement.” With the prevalence of knee pain (25% of adults) in our country, along with the associated arthritis stemming from injuries or wear and tear as we age, it seems that this is a trend that will continue for the time being.  Over 600,000 total knee replacement surgeries are performed annually in the United States.  In fact, if you’re reading this, chances are you’re either considering a knee replacement or you have had one already.  Maybe you don’t know yet...

Treating George Costanza

Today we highlight a client who has quite a story.  When I first heard it I thought the staff was pulling my leg. It sounds like an episode of Seinfeld where George Costanza was carrying a huge wallet stuffed with all sorts of useless coupons, receipts, loyalty cards and notes.  He was sitting in the cafe complaining about his back and hip pain to Jerry when Jerry noted that he was sitting “on a slant” due to his obese wallet. Instead of taking the wallet out of his back pocket George just grabbed a wad of napkins and shoved them...

Do You Need To Change?

The thought of change is overwhelming to some, myself included but in this post I will show you how you can get over the fear of change and start to move the needle in a positive direction.  Ask my friends and family and they will tell you I am pretty set in my ways. I am the type of person that finds something I like and I will stick to it. It could be a certain type of food, clothing, shoes or my morning habits you name it and I am set.  Now this doesn’t mean I won’t change. I...

One True Hero

Today we highlight a client who has battled through lower back pain complete with a spinal fusion, multiple complications and a lengthy recovery process, oh and by the way he is a true American HERO, a disabled veteran. Matt had a long way to go but put in the hard work to reach his goals.  Matt also made some new friends in therapy giving a lease on the phrase “misery loves company”.   “A healthy man has thousands of wishes, a sick man has only one”. -Agnes Karll Schwest Krankenpfleger Matt’s story.  Matt is truly an American hero. As a disabled...

Snacking To Win

There is an episode of Seinfeld where Elaine developed the habit of having a sugary snack (a slice of cake or a cookie) around 3PM, as there was always someone in the office celebrating a birthday or anniversary.  At one point she denounced the excessive celebrations and got cut off from the afternoon sugar rush. She quickly realized how much she actually depended on the afternoon jolt.  Does this sound familiar? Do you seem to hit the wall mid-afternoon?  If this sounds like you, what do you do?  Are you like Elaine? Looking for a sugary substance to snack on...
