Don’t snooze on the benefits of...

I think we all appreciate the luxury of a ‘good night’s sleep’ but what does that really look like? And how often are each of us catching those quality z’s?  What happens if you don’t get enough sleep? Click HERE to find out! There has been an uprising of popularity in products like FitBit or the Oura ring, now surrounded by a plethora of competitors like WHOOP offering similar products. These wearable devices track your sleep, specifically tracking things like what stage of sleep you’re in at different times and your overall quality of sleep.  You can read more about...

Is Extreme Texas Heat the Cause...

It’s no question that this summer has been uncharacteristically hot and humid, even for Texas. But what’s even more abnormal is the uptick in people suffering from summer colds! Strep, stomach bug, bacterial infections, flu symptoms, you name it.  So why? Well, for starters, the heat certainly encourages people to swim more, whether that means getting in a pool, or a lake. The heat also makes it easier for bacteria to breed in the water. Just another reminder to not drink the pool or lake water!  This is especially important for young swimmers who may think it’s amusing to hold...

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.

…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...
