After April 6th we will determine if it is safe for us to begin seeing patients in clinic. Physio Pro remains open for Telehealth and E-visit appointments only. Please utilize this option. We can still offer effective treatment sessions through this difficult time. ⁣⁣⁣

⁣We want to help in these difficult times!⁣
⁣⁣
⁣We are so grateful for the community we have served for so many years. Now we want to volunteer services outside of the usual physical therapy we provide for those in need during these unprecedented times.⁣
⁣Are you elderly, or sick, or unable to run errands, and don’t have a social network to help you?⁣
⁣We at Physio Pro would like to extend our help to the elderly in our community. If you are in need of assistance and you don’t have an adequate social network to help you, we want to help you in any way we can. We can run an errand for you, pick up a few items from the store, provide an item you desperately need, even pick up a meal to get thru the day. And we can do all of this while still following CDC guidelines and maintain social distancing (we could leave items at your door). ⁣
⁣Please call us at 303-370-2670 if we can help you in any way! We strongly believe that together we can get thru these trying times!

Worried about a “bad” MRI of your back? DONT BE!!!!!!! ⁣
⁣Research has shown that scans do not determine prognosis of the current episode of low back pain (LBP), the likelihood of future LBP disability, and do not improve LBP clinical outcomes.⁣
⁣⁣
⁣A recent study that examined MRI’s of individuals that have NO SYMPTOMS (which was a requirement in order to participate in the study), showed that, for example, at age fifty, 80% of the individuals were diagnosed with disk degeneration, 60% had a bulging disk, 36% had a disk herniation, and 32% had facet joint degeneration. And yet, all these individuals had no symptoms at all. A picture of the spine alone does not tell the whole story. In order for us to examine what is causing the symptoms, we have to move the spine around to find out how it behaves, what it likes and what it doesn’t like. And based on those findings, we can form a treatment plan with the goal for you to be in control of your back, instead of your back controlling you. #lowbackpain #assessdontguess #physiotherapy ⁣

Great repost from @theprehabguys

You Are NOT Your MRI!
.
This was too good of a post from @rehabscience not to share. The relationship between pain and tissue damage is not always clear. Just because you have a disc bulge, for example, it does not necessarily mean that is the reason you have low back pain. In fact, it’s quite the opposite especially as we age as there is a high percentage of people that have signs of disc degeneration with NO pain (swipe to see graphics).
.
🔎To flip the script a bit, the MRIs shown here are from a 32 year old male who presented to the hospital with severe back pain on two different occasions. On October 2012, the patient did not have any neurological deficits, so physical therapy and a short course of oral steroids were ordered and his pain resolved.
.
📘In October 2013, another MRI was ordered when the same patient once again entered the hospital with severe back pain. You would think, oh, it’s because he has a disc hernation, right? But no! This time around, his disc herniation was no longer visible...but he still had severe back pain!
.
⁉️What does this teach us⁉️
.
1️⃣Pain does not necessarily indicate tissue damage. In both situations documented above, the patient had low back pain. At the time of the first episode, a potential tissue insult could be identified. This was not true at the time of the second episode of back pain.
.
2️⃣Disc herniations can resolve with conservative care and time. The details of this individual’s rehab were not given, but it is important to know that relatively simple programs that include movements like walking, general low back mobility drills and low load resistance training exercises help the majority of people. A healthy dose of patience (up to 4-6 months) is important too.

Is your Ankle Mobility Your Issue? Knee to Wall Ankle Mobility. Get the family involved. Limited ankle motion can be the cause of dysfunction up the chain. You may notice problems with squatting at the gym, walking downstairs or picking up your kids. A simple test you can perform at home is Knee to Wall ankle mobility test. You measure the distance between to the wall and your big while you perform a light loaded lunge on the front foot. The heel and the entire foot must remain on the ground. A simple tape measure can be used. 10 cm or greater indicates good ankle mobility. 5cm or less indicates poor ankle mobility. This can create problems at the hip knee and back. Limited ankle mobility can be from bony abnormalities, joint mobility limitations, soft tissue restrictions or calf musculature issues. You can have fun and get yours kids involved too. Ranges listed above are for adult limitations.

We finally got our Blood Flow Restriction station set up today at the clinic. Who is ready for a little HGH and IGF-1 to get their week going strong with @bstrongtraining ?!!!

Congrats to Christine Sinclair for scoring her 185th goal and moving into first place all time for international scoring in woman’s and men’s soccer! Christine passed Abby Wambach in her latest match to move into first place. Such an accomplishment on a storied career! Well deserved for such a humble and hard working athlete. Honored we could be one small stop on your long ride. @c_sinc12 #goat #soccer #womenssoccer ...

This exercise helps improve mobility in the upper back (thoracic spine) countering all the time we spend sitting. Better mobility here helps with neck and shoulder problems and is very safe. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣Purchase a foam roller or even use a tightly rolled towel. Be sure to lean back into the roller instead of repeatedly doing crunches. Having the knees bent and feet flat on the ground protects the low back. We recommend doing 2-5 reps in one given position and then repositioning the roller further up the spine. Repeat this process until you reach the base of your cervical spine (neck). The pros at PhysioPro can help you perfect your technique.⁣⁣

Manual resistive exercises targeting the rotator cuff are a great thing to add in the later stages of rehab as well as for injury prevention and shoulder health. Dynamic stabilization requires the shoulder girdle and cuff to work simultaneously to stabilize the humeral head in the glenoid through its entire available range of motion. They are easy to incorporate into an athletes program and are a great way to prime the shoulder for competition on games days or for the days training sessions. @natelilleypt #shoulderrehabilitation #dynamicstabilization #eccentrictraining #rotatorcuff ...
