Are you an individual suffering from an injury? Have you been through physical therapy and are still having issues? Are you an athlete trying to recover from a nagging pain or injury? If you answered yes to any of the above questions, then you came to the right place. I have been in the fitness industry for 23 years and have had a great amount of success being able to find solutions to nagging issues. Many times people are dealing with chronic pain that could be treated. In my time as a personal trainer, I have treated ACL tears, spinal fusions, neck fusions, knee pain, impinged shoulders, low back discomfort, postural problems, damaged growth plates, and a variety of other issues. Some examples of things I have treated over the years are below.
For example, I have had someone who has had chronic knee pain that had been through physical therapy and had gotten zero relief. This individual thought they might have to go under the knife to fix the problem. As it turns out after a thorough evaluation, the client had tight IT Bands and tight calves which were the underlying problem. Treatment of the symptoms consisted of tools such as the foam roller, proper stretching, and some corrective exercises we were able to solve all of the nagging aches and pains they had been dealing with for over a year.
I had another individual suffering from low back pain. There are usually several reasons that can cause such an issue. It could be a lack of flexibility, poor abdominal strength, or a muscular imbalance. There are a variety of techniques that can be used to correct these issues. There is no reason that you have to be in constant pain and the path to healing is fairly simple. We used a combination of foam rolling, postural correction, and mobility exercises to treat the problem.
Another fairly common issue is an impingement in the shoulder. This can be cause by overtraining certain muscle groups, poor posture, or lack of mobility. The correction usually involves something called Active Release Therapy combined with stretching and corrective exercises. The impingement usually sends a burning down the arm and causes loss of mobility. If not corrected, it can lead to a frozen shoulder. I have seen several clients with this issue and have had great success rehabilitating the issue.
This is just a small sampling of some of the things I have seen over the years in the industry. Do you have a problem, I’d love the opportunity to help you. Our health care system has become more of a money motivated operation rather than fixing the individual. I prefer fixing the individual as it has become a very rewarding process.
