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...

I Don’t Have Time For…

Tick Tock goes the clock. I don’t have time for ……(you fill in the blank).  Often we hear this when it comes to scheduling physical therapy 3 times a week for 4-6 weeks.  On the surface this can seem like a lot of time but rarely do people see it as an investment in their health.  The problem is you should see the time you spend to either get out of pain or to build or maintain your strength and independence as an investment and not a cost.  An investment is something that gives you a positive return on your...

Two bits, four bits, 6 bits...

Today we highlight a client who had all the chips stacked against him, yet he fought on with a burning desire for a brighter future.   He understands the investment needed to build strength, endurance and most important remain independent.    “A healthy man has thousands of wishes, a sick man has only one”. -Agnes Karll Schwest Krankenpfleger Doug’s story.  Doug's back was against the wall. As if one hip fracture wasn’t bad enough he fell and broke the other hip. He didn’t require surgery but he couldn’t put any weight on the leg for over 4 months which led to even...

Your Home May Not Be As...

Flipping through the channels the other day I stopped on an episode of hoarders. Of course the lady had too much stuff in her home making it difficult to walk much less function on a daily basis.  It reminded me of a house I visited years ago when I was doing home health care. I got a call to see a lady who was falling frequently due to weakness and deconditioning.  When I entered the house all I could see was stacks and stacks of paper.  The living room, halls, bedrooms and dining room all had stacks on stacks of...

Team Work Makes The Dream Work

As we begin 2022 I thought it would be appropriate 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.  Today I highlight a true rock star for Moss Rehabilitation Center, Tyla Haley.  The crazy thing is that most of you don’t even know that she exists. Pre-covid she sat in the “hole”, the small office off of the main reception area checking insurance benefits, filing claims and sending you those wonderful statements.  Tyla has put up with me and my antics for 5...
