Painful knee

Years ago, if you wanted relief from knee pain caused by osteoarthritis, you would get a prescription for medication, cortisone shots, or ointments. Of course, those treatments only mask the pain without fixing the problem. The next step typically would be surgery. In some cases, knee surgery is the only option, especially for severe cases […]

Causes for Knee Pain

Did you know there are two joints in the knee? Both connect to the femur (thigh bone), the longest bone in the body. One joint connects the femur with the tibia (shin bone), which is the second longest bone in the body. The other joint connects the femur to the patella (kneecap). These bones in […]

text neck treatment

In the previous post, I discussed how text neck has become more prevalent as smartphone use has increased, especially among young people. Text neck is a painful condition you experience when you constantly tilt your head forward to stare at your smartphone for texting, emailing, web browsing, gaming or any other activity.

Text Neck pain

According to eMarketer, adults in our country spent an average of 3 hours, 35 minutes per day on mobile devices in 2018, an increase of more than 11 minutes from 2017.

Is your exercise helping or hurting your back

People often make the assumption that the best way to fix their back pain is to do exercises that they think will strengthen those muscles. Maybe they do dead lifts. Maybe they’ll try planks, bridges or stretching. Maybe they’ll do crunches to strengthen their core. None of these exercises are necessarily bad. The problem is, […]

Operations Excellence

I was reading an article the other day about how Chic-fil-A is statistically the most polite quick-service/drive-thru restaurant chain. One of the main reasons for the distinction is that their employees are most likely to say “please” and “thank you” to drive-thru customers. Truth be told, I don’t spend much time in these establishments and […]

sciatica

If you or someone you know has had sciatica, you know that the pain typically radiates from your lower back down the back of the leg, usually on one side of the body. Sciatica can be a dull ache, or it can be sharp, excruciating pain that flares up when you cough or sneeze, almost […]

bare foot with orthotic insole

In the previous post, we discussed why proper foot biomechanics are so important to how the body functions. Foot and ankle injuries, disorders and deformities affect how we stand, walk and exercise. They create imbalances that can lead to pain in the knees, hips, back, and all the way up to the shoulders and neck. […]

Foot Biomechanics

As we age, the movement and structure of the foot, or foot biomechanics, tend to change. Intrinsic and extrinsic foot muscles become weaker and foot deformities develop. Some of the results of changing foot biomechanics are easily noticeable. You may notice that your feet are angled in a certain way. You could have fallen arches. […]

kids playing on new technology smart phones

Most people associate addiction with drugs, alcohol and gambling. When it comes to smartphones and other handheld devices, “addiction” is typically mentioned far more casually. People often joke that they’re addicted to their smartphones or certain apps. They sleep with their phones and panic when they can’t find them. They check their social media accounts […]
