FAQ’s About Sports Injuries

By |November 23rd, 2020|Tags: , , , |

Today we're gonna go over the top frequently asked questions we're asked about sports injuries on a day-to-day basis.   I Was Told That Surgery Is The Only Option. Can You Help Me? The truth is it depends, right. Some patients are told who have an athletic injury, that surgery is their only option. But other times, these patients can be fixed, because maybe the physician or medical provider that was evaluating them had a wrong diagnosis. It really just depends on your end game and goal, where you're trying to get to, and if we can help you.   Should I Use Ice Or Heat? So, that's a big question we [...]

Why Most Spinal Surgery’s Fail

By |October 8th, 2020|Tags: , , |

If you're considering spinal surgery, you must watch this video and/or read this blog post before you do anything. Considering spinal surgery is a big decision to make. You're in pain, you're tired of the pain, you can't sleep at night, you can't do your daily functioning activities. But the truth of the matter is there is no guarantee that a spinal surgery will work for you. In fact, they call it failed spinal surgery syndrome in the medical model, where about roughly 50% of the people who have spinal surgery will fail. I'm not saying the spinal surgery isn't for everyone, it does do wonders for patients [...]

5 Tips to Prevent Falls

By |September 11th, 2020|Tags: |

Consider these alarming statistics from the CDC: Every 11 seconds, an adult above 65 is treated in the emergency room for a fall Every 19 minutes, an adult above 65 dies [...]

We want to keep going…so when pain strikes, we gulp a pill that relieves the symptoms. And when the pain returns, [...]

Nobody wants to get to the point where heel pain and stiffness interferes with daily activities. Unfortunately, many people with plantar fasciitis will get to this point because traditional plantar fasciitis treatments are typically ineffective. Here’s Why You Need to Avoid Traditional Plantar Fasciitis Treatments Doctors often prescribe rest, painkillers, or corticosteroid injections for plantar fasciitis. While these traditional “treatments” can temporarily alleviate pain, they do nothing [...]
