10 Best supplements to help with...

Everyone seems to be looking for the magic bullet!!! A pill, exercise or some device they can put on themselves at night and magically wake up the next day feeling better.  I am afraid I am the bearer of bad news. That ain’t gonna happen.  But what I will tell you is that thoughtful, consistent choices over time can add up to a huge change.  In Darren Hardy’s book “The Compound Effect” he states that anything in life we do that is meaningful will take time to see a dramatic change.  In other words there is no “overnight success”.   Some...

Local Springtown Health Expert Discusses First...

Low back pain affects roughly 80% of all adults at some point in their lifetime. The prevalence for low back pain is greater in women and as we age.  The problem is there is not a consensus on how to effectively treat lower back pain. There are many different schools of thought and such a large variation within patient (men/ women, young/old) populations that trying to put a blanket over the problem is impossible.  It is estimated that back pain is the most common type of pain and it affects nearly 2 out of 5 US adults within the last...

Local Springtown Health Expert Discuss Ways...

I ran across this article the other day which discussed the addiction that most Americans have with their cell phones.  80% check their phones within the first 10 minutes of getting out of bed, 62% sleep with their phones and 70% use their phones while on the TOILET!!!! EEEEWWW  The funny thing is I can relate to several of the cell phone behaviors listed in the article..obviously not the toilet one, but I do use my phone as an alarm clock and tend to check the weather and my Oura ring sleep activity while I am brushing my teeth first...

Springtown Arthritis Pain Sufferers…Do you wake up with stiff joints?  Do you moan and groan as you begin the day due to joint or muscle pain?  Have you been diagnosed with some form of arthritis (osteo - most common) rheumatoid) or have a family history?  If you answered yes to any of the above questions then you are not alone.  Many of my patients complain of these similar issues on a daily basis. Their doctor has told them they have arthritis (inflammation) and there is nothing they can do.  Most resort to doing nothing or taking harmful NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatories)...

What is Stress and How Can...

At one of our free community education workshops I got this idea from talking to the participants. The original question is about therapy and exercises but quickly turned into the topic of stress and how to relieve it.   As we were wrapping up I was answering some of the group's questions and got an interesting one. (Actually I hear this frequently).  It was, why come in for therapy when I can just find some exercise on the internet?  I thought that was a great question. Here is part of what I told her regarding exercises.  First you can get a...

A Balanced Recovery

Today we highlight a client who had a desire to improve his balance and strength to prevent future falls and maintain his independence.  He understands the importance of being proactive in his health.   “A healthy man has thousands of wishes, a sick man has only one”. -Agnes Karll Schwest Krankenpfleger Charles’s story.  Charles started to get that sinking feeling that if he didn’t do something about his progressive weakness and balance issues he was going to end up on the floor with possibly a life threatening injury.  This is when Charles turned to MOSS Rehabilitation Center to help him remain...

Do This To Improve Your Therapy...

Looking to get the most out of your therapy? Then look no further, as these 3 tips can help speed your recovery.  When most healthcare providers talk about recovery from an injury or surgery this vital component is often left out.  However, most athletes know (myself included) that missing this vital component is actually when the true recovery process takes place. What am I talking about?  SLEEP All of the grueling hours on the bike, weight room or practice field do wonders to tear the body down and damage the muscles, joints and connective tissue but sleep is when the...

Be Strong Like Superman

In a prior blog post I discussed the benefits of being “flexible like gumby”. In this follow up article I want to tell you about several benefits of participating in a regular strength training program.  In high school I was a student of the martial arts. I began taking karate lessons in high school but was still a skinny kid. I wanted a way to develop some strength to really have a “punch” behind my punch, so I started lifting weights.  At first I didn’t enjoy it (because I was sore all of the time) and it didn’t seem to...

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...
