Top 3 Thing To Know About The PT Doctor

Top 3 Thing To Know About The PT Doctor

1.We Can Heal Your LOWER BACK PAIN

LOWER BACK PAIN, PAIN BENDING FORWARD, HERNIATED DISC, SCIATICA

If you took 100 people without back pain and gave them all an MRI, how many would have a bulging disc or worse?

ANSWER: 80%

With a herniated disc, the disc pushes backwards into the nerves stemming off of the spinal cord. The herniated disc itself is not painful. The pressure on the nerve is the source of the pain. Pressure on the nerve (commonly called a pinched nerve) can lead to pain, tingling, numbness, heaviness and weakness in the legs, groin, buttocks, feet and back.

With a healthy spine, the disc material does not press on the nerve. The disc stays in its defined space.

CAN I HEAL MY HERNIATED DISC?

People with bulging and herniated discs can be pain free. Research shows that it is possible to heal a herniated disc naturally without medications, injections and surgery.

It does require finding exactly what is causing your pain and doing the right treatments to address the specific problem.

Successful non-surgical treatment involves pushing the disc material forward away from the nerve and strengthening the stomach and lower back muscle to prevent the herniation from happening again.

 

2. We Can Heal Your Shoulder Pain

COMMON CAUSES OF SHOULDER PAIN

Rotator Cuff

Tendonitis

Impingement

Is there hope?

Successful treatment for rotator cuff impingment and tendonitis involves a hands-on approach followed by specific exercises performed properly. The result of successful treatment is less pain, less inflammation, better motion, improved strength and prevention of the pain returning.

Do you sleep like this or on your stomach with arms overhead? You may want to change your arm position if you are getting shoulder pain. This position puts pressure on the rotator cuff!

WHAT IS A ROTATOR CUFF?

The rotator cuff is a group of 4 muscles in the shoulder. They connect to your shoulder blade and arm bone (humerus).

The muscles are important to help you reach overhead, lift, get dressed and reach behind your back.

The rotator cuff tendons often become pinched as they pass under the end of the collar bone. This may result in calcium deposits or bone spurs and eventual tearing of the tendon.

 

3. We Can Heal Your KNEE PAIN

COMMON CAUSES OF KNEE PAIN

Arthritis

Meniscus Tears

Patellofemoral Dysfunction

WHAT IS A MENISCUS?

It is cartilage inside the knee that allows a cushion for the joint during walking and balancing activities. Also, the meniscus allows the knee to straighten and bend smoothly.

MENISCAL TEARS ARE MORE COMMON THAN YOU THINK!

In a recent study 63% of the people WITH knee pain had a meniscal damage while 60% of the people WITHOUT knee pain also had meniscal damage.

WHAT IS ARTHRITIS?

Arthritis Means “Joint Inflammation”

Common complaints of Arthritis in the Knee:

  • Pain with walking
  • Pain with getting out of chair
  • Pain going up and down stairs.

Arthritis is a common cause of knee pain. Avoid letting arthritis win the battle with everyday activities by performing simple exercises to strengthen the thigh muscles (quadriceps) and improve the flexibility of the hamstring. This will reduce the force through the knee joint and allow you to participate in daily activities with less pain!
