Struggling to recover from covid?

Getting sick is no fun, neither was being on lockdown or home isolation. It is hard to believe we are almost 2 years into this and it looks like there is no end in sight with new variants popping up all of the time.  So what can YOU do to help protect yourself or maximize your recovery should you get sick.  Locking yourself in your bunker and never seeing the light of day again or having live interactions with your friends or family is one option. I have actually heard about people making this extreme decision to avoid getting sick. ...

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...

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 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...

Are You A Dysfunctional Breather?

How Well Do You Breathe? Most people don't consider or think or about their breathing just because it happens naturally, which is good.  However, what happens is most people end up breathing incorrectly, whether it's from a trauma, injury, or just changes in postural habits.  Your breath has a tremendous effect on your health.  It can actually affect multiple areas of your life.  Proper breathing, results in greater oxygenation of your blood, improved HRV, which is heart rate variability.
