…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...

Is Shoulder Pain Bothering You? –...

Having surgery can be a real pain, literally and figuratively.  Most people underestimate the challenges a major surgery poses to their life. Whether it is the time off of work, difficulty sleeping due to a restrictive sling or the precautions put in place to avoid destroying the work the surgeon just performed.  Most assume they can have shoulder surgery and be back to normal in a few weeks. This is rarely the case. The repaired tissue is just beginning to heal at this time and if stressed too early can lead to significant damage.  Placing you in a worse position...

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...

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...

King Of The Knee

I want to introduce you to Mike. Mike was new to MOSS Rehabilitation Center after his knee replacement surgery.  We worked to help him get back to his goals of return to construction work, walking without a limp and improving his mobility and strength.  When he graduated he had accomplished his goals, had his questions answered and complimented the team that helped guide him through the transformation of what he could do pre and post therapy.  “A healthy man has thousands of wishes, a sick man has only one”. -Agnes Karll Schwest Krankenpfleger Mike’s story: Mike came to MOSS Rehabilitation...
