A guide to all conservative and medical treatments available to reduce your knee pain. A variety of knee conditions, home therapies, home products, and exercises are explained to educate and inform you of options available.Most people can successfully avoid knee surgery if they follow the correct treatments and exercise program. Unfortunately most people do not get the right treatments or recommendations, which leads them down the path to surgery. Have you talked to providers who are experts at knee rehabilitation? How do you know you are getting the best advice for your specific condition and where do you go to learn and educate yourself? Most cases of chronic knee pain are a slow development of increasing knee pain over time with subtle loss of function; and can be improved with the right therapy and treatments. Too many people make the mistake of having surgery first, and then going for rehabilitation. Maybe they should go for great rehab first and then surgery if absolutely needed.
Golf doesn’t pose some of the injury risks that high impact sports such as running or basketball do, playing the game with bad form can lead to injury. A golfer might have been told at some point that he or she is “hitting from the top,” casting, or allowing the hips to sway forward during the follow-through. But none of these things seemed to affect the game much, or did they?Although improper golf mechanics may not cause injuries in the short term, they most likely will catch up with the person at some point and possibly sideline him or her. The purpose of this book is to connect the dots: to explain some of the differences between proper and improper golf mechanics, how the improper movements are leading to injury, and most important, what can be done to fix them.
People with plantar fasciitis become frustrated with the lack of clear answers, fluctuating foot pain, and various opinions. This complete guide reviews causes of plantar fasciitis, home therapies, home products, conservative treatments, medical treatments, alternative treatments, and provides effective exercises. The book clearly explains and educates you on available options. Learn about plantar fasciitis, possible treatments, and home solutions in one book from someone who treats it every day.
For those who want more answers this book answers why you developed the problem and what other muscles and joints in the kinetic chain could be compromised. When do you ice vs heat? When should you consider orthotics or cortisone injections? Is a night splint worth the sleep loss? How big of a role do bone spurs play in heel pain? The answer will definitely surprise you! What are the most effective treatments for breaking up scar tissue and causing proper tissue healing? Most people will require a few different treatments to resolve their foot pain, but which ones provide the greatest benefit?
If you plantar fasciitis started two weeks ago, start icing it several times a day and get a new pair of shoes. It might improve in two weeks and you won’t need this book. However if six months ago you were told the pain would “just go away,” how many more months will you wait before finding the best recommendations and treatments to resolve your daily and worsening pain.
Most adult elbow injuries are the result of overuse and dysfunctional movement patterns. Although this book addresses both acute and chronic injuries, it focuses on the latter due to their high prevalence.
This book focuses on conservative therapies that can be performed at home or in the office for several elbow injuries. Because most elbow injuries don’t occur in isolation, this book addresses these injuries within the larger framework of the upper extremity, movement patterns, past injuries, compensation patterns, and chronic repetitive injuries.
Most musculoskeletal injuries can be successfully treated or at worst case managed with a combination of physiotherapy and corrective exercise, especially treatments that focus on muscles, tendons, and ligaments.
Wrists and hands are the multi-taskers of the anatomy world: equally adept at office work, chores around the house, and a day on the links or pickleball court. That is, until something gets injured. When one of these areas does become injured, the fix can be complicated. Not only do the wrist, hand, and arm perform a lot of different functions, each is made up of a multitude of parts.
Unlike acute injuries that are often the result of trauma, many chronic injuries are the result of overuse and/or dysfunctional movement patterns. We also take a conservative approach, focusing on treatments that are non-invasive and highly effective at treating musculoskeletal injuries. This book will cover some of the degenerative conditions that affect hand and wrist function, including osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, ganglia, Dupuytren’s contracture, DeQuervain syndrome, trigger finger, carpal tunnel syndrome, and more.
The purpose of this book is to explain where your pain came from and the best ways to resolve it at home and in the office. Common shoulder injuries include damage to the rotator cuff muscles (particularly the supraspinatus), impingement, labral tears, frozen shoulder and tendonitis or tendonosis, nerve entrapments, SICK Scapula, upper cross syndrome, thoracic outlet syndrome, and more.
Home and office treatment options are included to enhance your recovery. A variety of exercises are shown from the most basic to advanced. We have included many more than the basics to give you options to strengthen your shoulder and avoid future injuries.
The Swiss ball provides stimulus to the core muscles because it is inherently unstable. Basically, anything you can do on a weight bench can also be done on an exercise ball be it a bench press, military press, bicep curl, fly or row. The biggest difference between the bench and the ball is that the weight bench allows a person to isolate various parts of the body, whereas the ball, due to its instability, involves the entire body in every exercise. Because of this, you will want to begin with lighter weights, or in some cases, no weights at all.
The most effective strength training programs are those that require a minimal investment in equipment, and can be done anywhere: inside the home, in the backyard, in a park or on track or soccer field. The exercises that follow require three pieces of equipment: a Swiss exercise ball, a medicine ball, and a yoga mat.
Everybody, from the serious athlete to the dedicated couch potato, needs to stretch. Particularly as we get older, we lose flexibility, making stretching on a regular basis (2-3 times per week) even more important. According to some sources, the average individual loses 25-30% of overall flexibility by age 70. Regular stretching helps to maintain the balance between muscles that work opposite each other to help you move.
This book provides a basic stretch for every region in the body. It provides several options for modifications for those with even less flexibility than others. This guide is a starting place to safely increase flexibility for adults and seniors. A few home exercises are also provided for those who want a little more to do.
This book provides exercise options for adults and seniors, especially for those who are looking for something different and can be performed long term. The exercises can be performed at home or the gym with a few weights, resistance bands, and exercise balls. The simplest exercises are the place to start, with a progression to the more difficult.
Rehab exercises are trying to teach the body how to perform a movement better and with proper stability. Sometimes the goal is to teach the brain how to better control the muscles (neuromuscular control), and other exercises build strength or endurance.
The trick is to do the right exercises for your level and ability. In the office we talk about “proving you can and then do a little more. Next time prove you can and then do a little more.” This exercise book is designed to give you plenty of options to challenge the neuromuscular control and build joint stabilization at home with minimal equipment.
