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...

Team Work Makes The Dream Work

As mentioned before when we highlighted Tyla Haley , I am going to shine the light on some of my amazing team and give you a little insight into what they do and some of their personality traits.  This month I present another rock star for Moss Rehabilitation Center, Kim Hilton.   Unlike Tyla, Kim sits front and center and is one of your first points of contact upon entering and leaving our facility. You have no doubt talked to her whether you have called in to schedule or during the checkout process.  Kim is very busy throughout the day answering...

I Don’t Have Time For…

Tick Tock goes the clock. I don’t have time for ……(you fill in the blank).  Often we hear this when it comes to scheduling physical therapy 3 times a week for 4-6 weeks.  On the surface this can seem like a lot of time but rarely do people see it as an investment in their health.  The problem is you should see the time you spend to either get out of pain or to build or maintain your strength and independence as an investment and not a cost.  An investment is something that gives you a positive return on your...

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...

Top Questions About Your Knee Pain:...

In a previous blog post I have pointed out that knee pain affects over 25% of adults, and many of these people wind up having surgery to try and fix the problem. We have also discussed options to avoid surgery if possible HERE.  Today I want to cover some of the most frequently asked questions I get regarding knee pain. I am pulling back the curtain and opening the vault (Seinfeld reference), I hope this helps.  Q: How long is it going to take?  A: Ultimately it depends on you and your goal or goals.  AT MOSS Rehabilitation Center we...

The 2 Things You Must Do...

Let’s talk about your knee pain for a bit: this is one of the most common problems that we see in our office In fact, in our most recent blog  (What You Need To Know Before You Get That New Knee) we pointed out how frequent knee pain affects over 25% of adults, and many of these people wind up having surgery to try and fix the problem. I can personally attest to the headaches that come from having knees that hurt; years of sports gave me some injuries that have even affected me for years afterward.  The knee joint...

What You Need To Know Before...

One of the most common orthopedic surgeries these days is a Total Knee Arthroplasty (TKA), otherwise known as a “knee replacement.” With the prevalence of knee pain (25% of adults) in our country, along with the associated arthritis stemming from injuries or wear and tear as we age, it seems that this is a trend that will continue for the time being.  Over 600,000 total knee replacement surgeries are performed annually in the United States.  In fact, if you’re reading this, chances are you’re either considering a knee replacement or you have had one already.  Maybe you don’t know yet...

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...
