New year to get painfree

January 3, 2021

I think sometime people feel that taking care of a nagging or chronic pain will be a big undertaking. I suppose sometimes it is, but, there are also many times it can be quite simple. I have seen insanity defined as "doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result". It sums up so many things that people do that lead to less than optimal outcomes.

When it comes to orthopedic pain all too often the solution can be simple. All it takes is gaining a good understanding of the issue and then putting (or removing) the proper load. In all likelihood, if we take a second to over generalize, you either need to stop overloading the tissue, or you need to load it more. What exactly does that mean? People don't realize how easy it is to take a spinal disc to end range (imagine bending your finger all the way back, to the end of it's range of motion). They do it all the time, and then wonder why their back hurts. There are some simple strategies to help alleviate that problem. Then and only then would a core strengthening program be as effective as it is proposed to be.

Conversely, people injure themselves and then never apply the proper load to actually force the tissue to heal. They get stuck in the early phase of healing with "structurally impaired tissue". What they need to do it get an appropriate loading strategy to start the healing process and follow it through to completion. That takes some time but it's not as involved as people may thing. The body has tremendous remodeling cap[abilities under the correct circumstances.

That's where we come in. What our job is, and we are good at it, is figuring that all out for you! It doesn't take that long really so invest in yourself and take the steps to healing. We are here to help. Call today and start stepping to be pain free in 2021.
