No matter how you slice it, groin pain is a big problem and healthcare seems to have a lot of over complicated answers with no long term relief for patients. We have seen too many people come in to the office who have seen multiple healthcare professionals (doctors, chiros, PTs, etc) with little to no relief. This ailment is given various names ranging from sports hernias to adductor strains and most people are told this is something they will just have to deal with. Nothing seems to help the patient get better. Patients get so frustrated that they stop exercising and this leads to a downward spiral of more pain and decreased function. We are here to tell you that there is a solution! It’s not an easy one, but it’s one that I find very effective in my clinic!
Groin strains are a big problem in professional sports as well. They can limit a lot of players time on the field and create...
If you have knee pain, you have to read this.
We all have activities we enjoy and that require us to be in good physical health. Whether it’s walking, golfing, biking, running, lifting weights, or something else entirely, having physical pain can hinder us from doing the things we really enjoy. There are certain pains that can be more debilitating than others. Having severe knee pain, for example, can mean that short morning walk from your car can turn into a long, painful one.
What can cause knee pain?
While the cause of knee pain can vary, some of the most common causes are arthritis, runner’s knee, tendonitis, meniscus tears, and sprained ligaments. Without proper treatment, knee pain can continue to cause pain for years, and you deserve better! It’s important to find the right type of help to ensure that your knee heals properly and that you stay pain-free. At Made2Move Physical Therapy, we’ll determine the best methods to alleviate your knee pain.
I know what you’re thinking: not another blog on running; telling me to stretch, do some cross-training, and buy new shoes. Well this one is different… maybe not completely, but we are going to package it in a sweet doughnut with frosting and sprinkles so it goes down easy.
My name is Yves, I am a physical therapist, and I truly love running. I enjoy just going outside, no equipment needed, and running a mile, or two, or more. I have traveled through a lot of fitness arenas and love most of them. Currently, doing Crossfit, especially the olympic lifting, is my new challenge. Running in some form has always been a part of my workout regimen. I’ve completed a few 1/2 marathons, some 5Ks, 10Ks, and I ran one marathon, “Flying Pigs,” in Cincinnati (there were a lot of hills!)
The main thing we want to learn today (and it’s a universal principle no matter what the sport or activity) is that you need to master the basics first, simplify...
