[LOW BACK PAIN SERIES PART 7 - DISC HERNIATIONS]
Most people have the perception that a disc herniation in their lower back is a life sentence: that they are doomed to a lifetime of lower back pain and subsequent disability. This is a serious myth and it needs to change. Not only do we have data showing quite clearly that disc herniations heal, the great news is they actually heal VERY WELL.
What’s particularly fascinating about how discs heal is that they can do so spontaneously! Also, the more serious the injury, the better it heals. Amazing! So you definitely don’t need to worry about having them forever.
But just because you have a disc herniation shown on an MRI, this doesn’t mean it is the cause of your back pain. This might sound a little confusing, so let’s dive a bit deeper into what we know.
The prevalence of seeing a lower back disc herniation in PAIN FREE PEOPLE--YOU READ THAT RIGHT: PAIN FREE PEOPLE--naturally increases as they get older. For instance, disc herniations occur in 30% of 20 year olds and 84% of 80 year olds.
This calls to question just how much a disc injury influences someone’s pain experience. The answer? It depends on the individual case. So be sure to get checked out by a health professional if you’re not sure.
One thing I can say with confidence: disc herniations are a normal part of life and definitely a normal part of the ageing process. Sometimes they are highly relevant to pain, but often times they aren’t. So don’t worry about it. Chances are if you have one it’ll be just fine.
PS. Discs NEVER slip. Get your facts straight.
Don’t sit still. Make moves!

Learn about how you can shed weight in a healthy, safe and sustainable method. We are excited to host a nutrition talk by @stephmullrd & @millermethod at the clinic on 11/14 @6:30pm. Mark your calendars‼️📆 #Repost @millermethod
People tell us all the time that you can't increase lean mass and lose fat at the same time. Guess what? YES YOU CAN! *
That is always our goal and we have hundreds of DXA scan reports that can show proof of it. *
This one is from our 61 year old female client who lost 2 lbs of fat and increased lean by 1.6 lbs in 4 weeks.
How do you do it? Two things must be in place:
1. An appropriate and customized nutrition plan based on ones resting metabolic rate.
2. An appropriate resistance training program that includes adequate volume and progressive overload. *
We can teach YOU how to create these plans for your clients to get the same results. DM us for more info.

Funny how I just saw this on @wkwong feed last night and this pops up. This is an amazing exercise for cyclists especially because of the eccentric action (lengthening portion) of the quadriceps. The rectus femoris is a clinically significant muscle since it has both a hip flexion and knee extension component... essential to the pedal stroke of biking 🚴♀️ #Repost @physionetwork
Applying new research: the reverse nordic curl exercise 🏋️ New research has shown that this exercise significantly increased the length, thickness and cross-sectional area of the Quadricep muscle group; in particular the Rectus Femoris muscle.
It can be used to prevent quad strains, but may be a solid rehab exercise as well 👍
Did you find this info interesting? We review the latest and most clinically relevant research, and inform you HOW this can be applied in the clinic.

Ooooh yooou guys! Naked Cycling isn't about cycling naked, and though I wouldn't stop you if that's how you prefer to ride, a cop very well might.
Naked Cycling is about getting to the fundaments of riding a bike: because it's fun and because we feel free. Naked Cycling is about forgetting you're on a machine designed to propel you forward and, instead, feeling comfort, efficiency, and power with minimal risk of injury. Your bike should be an extension of yourself and not a force that you must fight.
Naked Cycling is about stripping down all the discomfort and inefficiencies until you're one with your bike.
But back to cycling naked...I hear Philly is having a Naked Bike Ride 8/24/19! 🤗

Great post by @embrklifestyle 😊👍
“[PAIN SENSITIVITY VS. TISSUE DAMAGE]
The nervous system is like Pepperidge Farm…it remembers.
Sometimes a better way of thinking about pain when it persists after an injury is to think of it as sensitivity. When our body gets hurt, we become sensitive to certain stimuli because the nervous system is trying to protect us.
This is great when we first get injured because it alerts us to prevent subsequent harm but not so great when our tissue is healed. It's normal to have some sensitivity when coming back from an injury. After all, our brain is just trying to protect us.
However, after a certain time frame, we know that our tissues/muscles have healed. In these scenarios, we should not relate hurt to harm but instead to sensitivity. You can work around sensitivity by gradually re-introducing activities in varied intensities that once provided discomfort.
You're not broken and as long as you are living…your body does a stellar job at adapting.”

Assisted Reach, Roll, and Lift
This exercise is a great one for those that struggle with postural stability and getting the natural roll of the shoulder girdle during overhead motion. You can see how shaky my shoulder gets during the last several reps on my wonky shoulder
▪️Place strap at a high point attachment and place hands in straps of handles
▪️Face away from the point of attachment and put your hands in under shoulders and knees under hips, then rock back to your heels with your hips
▪️Reach as far away as you can with one hand/arm, rotate palm up toward ceiling and lift arm off floor with palm facing ceiling
▪️Slowly lower arm to floor and return to start position
▪️Keep the body still throughout the movement

👍This post from @dr.surdykapt and @running.physio has made the rounds lately and for good reason. Make sure to read all of it!
🧠The primary reason for individuals seeking the guidance of a physical therapist in an orthopedic or sports setting is usually to decrease pain while improving function. You cannot run because your left knee hurts. You cannot pick up your child because your right shoulder is symptomatic. You cannot sit at work because your low back is uncomfortable. So what do we do?
🚴♂️We start by establishing basic goals. You want to run 3 miles. You want to pick up your 40 pound child. You want to be able to sit for 1 hour. That’s the function component, but how about pain?
🏋🏼♂️We’d likely discuss that in some capacity as well. You might tell me about the intensity, frequency, duration, or nature of your pain. Maybe your initial goal is complete resolution of symptoms. How do we combine your goals regarding function and pain?
👉It might start with a conversation about expectations. It may be more realistic to focus on your function first even though the elimination of pain is your main focus. If you were previously able to run 1 mile with mild pain, but now you can run 3 miles with mild pain, would you consider that progress? Or what if you were only able to sit 30 minutes because the pain was so intense but now you’re able to sit for 1 hour?
🔎Rehabilitation is frustrating because it’s rarely linear. Some days your symptoms will be better and some days your symptoms will be worse, especially in the early stages after an injury or surgery. It takes patience and commitment from you and your healthcare provider.
✅However, it’s extremely important to keep track of your progress from a functional standpoint as well. If you can do the SAME amount of activity with LESS pain, that is progress. Likewise, if you can do MORE of an activity with the SAME pain, that is also progress. And oftentimes, when the emphasis is placed on functional goals, pain can gradually decrease simultaneously.
