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...

“The DISNEYWORLD of physical therapy…”

When Tia came to MOSS Rehabilitation Center she felt like she was at the end of the line. She had “tried everything” without success.   Since we were the “last resort” for her she was very open and eager to give it a try. We worked with Tia to help improve her motion and reduce her pain.  More importantly she felt hopeful that physical therapy would help.  When she graduated not only had she accomplished her goals but she found something even more inspiring. A community of people who walked with her and encouraged her along the way.  “A healthy man...

Top 3 Reasons You Have Pain...

If you or someone you know has neck pain then this article is for you.  Not all neck pain is created equally. At different times of your life you may experience pain but it is likely caused by different conditions...and your spouse is not one of them!  As we age our bodies change and so does the resiliency of our tissues. The muscles lose strength and flexibility, the disc, ligaments and tendons become more brittle and susceptible to injury.  Since most of us are not as active compared to our younger years the body does what it does best ....

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...

Fuel Your Day; Food As Medicine

Do you ever find yourself hungry, looking for food in the refrigerator or pantry but don’t have any luck? Or do you find something to eat but it just doesn’t sound satisfying? Food for a lot of us is therapeutic. Both in a mental sense but also in a physical sense.  Food is fuel...plain and simple, but what type of food you consume has a major effect on your health. In other words it is medicine! Now don’t get me wrong, I have said it in the past and I will say it again today, I love junk food. Brownies...

Treating George Costanza

Today we highlight a client who has quite a story.  When I first heard it I thought the staff was pulling my leg. It sounds like an episode of Seinfeld where George Costanza was carrying a huge wallet stuffed with all sorts of useless coupons, receipts, loyalty cards and notes.  He was sitting in the cafe complaining about his back and hip pain to Jerry when Jerry noted that he was sitting “on a slant” due to his obese wallet. Instead of taking the wallet out of his back pocket George just grabbed a wad of napkins and shoved them...

Do You Need To Change?

The thought of change is overwhelming to some, myself included but in this post I will show you how you can get over the fear of change and start to move the needle in a positive direction.  Ask my friends and family and they will tell you I am pretty set in my ways. I am the type of person that finds something I like and I will stick to it. It could be a certain type of food, clothing, shoes or my morning habits you name it and I am set.  Now this doesn’t mean I won’t change. I...

One True Hero

Today we highlight a client who has battled through lower back pain complete with a spinal fusion, multiple complications and a lengthy recovery process, oh and by the way he is a true American HERO, a disabled veteran. Matt had a long way to go but put in the hard work to reach his goals.  Matt also made some new friends in therapy giving a lease on the phrase “misery loves company”.   “A healthy man has thousands of wishes, a sick man has only one”. -Agnes Karll Schwest Krankenpfleger Matt’s story.  Matt is truly an American hero. As a disabled...

Snacking To Win

There is an episode of Seinfeld where Elaine developed the habit of having a sugary snack (a slice of cake or a cookie) around 3PM, as there was always someone in the office celebrating a birthday or anniversary.  At one point she denounced the excessive celebrations and got cut off from the afternoon sugar rush. She quickly realized how much she actually depended on the afternoon jolt.  Does this sound familiar? Do you seem to hit the wall mid-afternoon?  If this sounds like you, what do you do?  Are you like Elaine? Looking for a sugary substance to snack on...

What Is That Strange Sensation?

It was a long hot day on the bike and my legs were screaming. We were 60 miles into the ride and had another 10 to go. This was not a race but a very aggressive group ride.  Everyone in our group was worn down and we could feel the pace starting to slow. Then we started a downhill section and I went to the front of the group to drive the pace.  After a minute of a hard effort I looked back and found only one rider with me. Instead of slowing down we kept the pace high...sorta an...
