Laser Focus to the Rescue!

Last week we discussed some of the most important elements of recovery. This week we’d like to shed some light on one of the services we offer here at MOSS that can benefit recovery immensely: the deep tissue laser. Whether you’re experiencing a twinge in your low back, muscle knots, or uncomfortable pressure on your knee, our deep tissue laser may be able to ease your pain and help to soothe the inflamed area.  If you’re skeptical about the word ‘laser’ being mentioned in regards to treatment, go ahead and click HERE to read more about it, why we invested...

…And the Rest is History

Last week we talked about one super important and complex joint in our bodies: the Knee And knowing that the knee is the most complex joint in our bodies, that must mean that a lot can go down hill if we get injured or cause inflammation to that joint, right? Right.  So what do you do?  Rest.  The first thing you can do for yourself to ease your pain now and help your body heal is to slow down and rest.  For many of us it can be difficult to slow down, it’s much too easy to get sucked into...

Balance in the Kitchen

We’ve been talking about balance a lot here, and the many ways it affects our day to day lives. We don’t just want to provide you with a quick fix solution, here at MOSS, we want to provide you with information that empowers you to really know your body. This week, we’re talking about balance in a less literal sense, and a more metaphorical one.  Nutritional balance. What is it? How do you find it? How do you maintain it? First question: What is it?  Nutritional balance is referring to what kind of fuel you’re providing your body with and...

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...

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...

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...

How I Learned To Breathe All...

In a prior post, I discussed how I am seeing more and more patients come in with post-Covid symptoms of general de-conditioning, difficulty breathing, fatigue, brain fog and overall poor energy levels.  In addition to the tips and FREE REPORT I provided to help build your immune system I want to give you another way to help you recover.  I have also broken down some of the breathing  basics here as well as how HRV can affect your health. Most of the people I talk with have their backs against the wall. They know they don’t feel good, think they...
