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...

Did you know that about 1 in 3 people experience neck pain annually? What’s more, 50 percent of those individuals have chronic or frequent neck pain, stiffness, and issues that can be debilitating & interfere with daily life. Neck pain causes more than just pain, though. It also can force individuals to compensate for the lack of mobility and pain, which can lead to other issues like muscle soreness, back pain, stiffness, headaches… the list goes on! So what brings you here? Are you or a loved one one of the millions of people experiencing pain, looking for a way...

Go to Bed! The Effects of...

In a previous post, I discussed the 4 stages of sleep and some tips I follow to get a good night's sleep.  In this post, I want to discuss some of the nasty side effects of not getting enough sleep.  But first: why do we even need sleep?  During the day, your body is focused on activities and getting things done. This changes when we sleep. The body gets to rest and the brain “cleans house.”  Scientists have discovered that a whole host of activities occur when the lights go out. The brain starts to sort out all of the...

Go to Bed! The Four Stages...

Recently I wrote about doing some exercises to stay active since the gyms are closed and we are staying home a lot more.  Several of you wrote back to say thanks for the tip and to tell me what you are doing to stay active. A common theme I heard from several of you was that you are using a Fitbit to track your activity.  Several years ago we went to Orlando for a physical therapy conference. I took the family along so we could also spend a few days at Disney World. I tracked my steps daily and frequently...

The Importance of Drinking Water: The...

We’ve all heard that you're supposed to drink 8 glasses of water a day. But do you know why? And is that really how much water you are supposed to drink? To answer these questions, let’s look at my Uncle Rocky for some insight. The Uncle Rocky Story Years ago, I remember going to my Uncle Rocky’s house. He always had a strange assortment of jokes and gags laying around his house.  One thing in particular was an old man's face hanging on his wall. The old man had a little red tie that you could pull on and then...
