Fact or Myth Friday!

Myth: Low back pain is caused by arthritis.

Fact: While studies show that arthritis is present in over 90% of those between the ages 50-55, only 10% experience arthritis-related pain. Arthritis is associated with aging, but not always associated with pain.

Low back pain is common. At some point in their lives, 80% to 90% of the adult population will experience low back pain. Unfortunately, studies show that many people with low back pain don't get the treatment that aligns with best evidence-based practices.

If low back pain keeps you from moving and enjoying life, a physical therapist can help. Physical therapists are movement experts. We improve quality of life through hands-on care, patient education, and prescribed movement. You can contact a physical therapist directly for an evaluation.

Thanks Neil! Glad to see you’re getting back in the game of life
Myth or Fact Friday!

Myth: Push through the pain.

Fact: It's not always wise to push through pain. Muscle soreness that eases as you run can be normal. However, there is a difference between soreness and pain . How do you determine if your pain is cause for alarm? Some types of pain should not be ignored. Seek the help of a physical therapist or other health care provider if you are experiencing pain. Pay particular attention to pain that:

- Does not go away within several hours after running.
- Exceeds a score of three on a pain scale of one to 10 (10 being the worst pain) while running.
- Is sharp.
- Wakes you up at night.
- Persists and worsens when you run.
- Occurs and continues in the same area every time you run.

A physical therapist will perform a thorough evaluation to assess your pain and determine how best to treat your symptoms. We can also identify when poor form may be contributing to your pain and prescribe necessary changes in training to allow your body to repair itself.

Super fun great place. Come support local businesses.
Stretching is an important part of recovery, but it rarely receives the time or attention it deserves. The purpose of stretching is to maintain the flexibility of tissues that are tight or stiff from an activity or prolonged position.

There are a variety of methods of stretching (using the hamstring muscle as an example):

1. Static/Isolated Stretching: Static, or isolated stretching is holding a stretch position for a long period. (Example: A static hamstring stretch would be when you sit on the ground with one leg pointing outward and you simply reach for your toes and hold for at least 30 seconds.)

2. Dynamic stretching: Dynamic stretching is using movement to combine muscle groups. (Example: A dynamic stretch for the hamstring would be walking toe touches, as you bend down and grab your toe with every step for 2 to 3 seconds.)

3. Foam Rolling: Foam rolling is a type of self-mobilization and massage. (Example: To foam-roll the hamstring muscle, you will simply put a foam roller under your legs and let your weight rest on top so the foam roller will push out any knots in your hamstring.)

A very general rule for stretching is dynamic stretching before exercise, static stretching after exercise, and foam rolling muscles. Using various stretching strategies will allow you to maintain and improve your mobility.

Tillman Physical Therapy will be closed on Monday, December 26th, and Monday, January 2nd in observance of the holidays. We will reopen for normal hours on Tuesday.

12/21/2022

Looking for a quick way to get a workout in this Holiday week? Try our Tillman 12 Holiday Exercises. This is a great quick way to get active and involve the whole family! Happy Holidays from the Tillman crew.

12/18/2022

Should you workout over the holidays?

The simple answer is YES. While the holidays are great for relaxation and spending time with loved ones, a lack of exercise can lead to muscle tightness, poor blood circulation, and pain. In order to prevent this, try to plan 30 minutes of exercise and stretching into your daily routine. Take walks or hikes with friends/family, enjoy some yoga, do your Theraband exercises, and get your blood flowing!

12/16/2022

MYTH OR FACT FRIDAY: You should stand on a padded surface while baking or cooking.

: Did you know that doing Yoga regularly helps with more than just stress relief? Yoga is a psychophysiological exercise that benefits both the mind AND the body.

: Most of the time when one is experiencing back pain, they often stay sedentary all day, because they think being active or stretching will hurt them more rather than alleviate their back pain. Here are some great stretches that will increase core strength to support a healthy back.

Cat/Cow: Try Cat/Cow to warm up your spine for activity. This also helps increase flexibility in the neck, shoulders and spine.

Hamstring Stretch: Back pain is often caused by tight hamstrings! One exercise is to lay on floor extend one leg straight, while extending one leg up towards the ceiling, flexing your foot, if you want a deeper stretch, you can get a stretch band or towel, place it around the arch of the foot and pull towards you. Take deep breathes, and keep foot flexed.

Pelvis Rocks (Windshield Wipers): This exercise requires stability and will help increase core strength, focus on your obliques and use slow and controlled movements.

On this Thanksgiving day, we want to share our genuine appreciation for YOU - our team and our patients! We wouldn’t be where we are today without you! We wish you a happy and festive Thanksgiving with your family and friends.

11/22/2022

Our favorite time of year is near! Family, food, and festivities, but if you’re not careful, these memories could turn into aches and pains. Tillman Physical Therapy wants to get you ready to kick off this holiday season and keep you injury free!

Standing too long during festivities, lifting heavy objects, or injuries from cooking are common during this time of year.

When cooking, choose a workspace that is level with your forearms when elbows are bent at a 90° angle. Don’t forget to take a break and stretch to loosen your shoulder, back, and neck muscles.

When lifting or moving heavy objects, lift with your knees, and avoid bending at the waist or twisting your trunk.

When carving the turkey, keep the handle dry, and consider using an electric knife for ease.

MYTH OR FACT: Weak bones or Osteoporosis affects more than half of Americans over the age of 50. Physical therapy can help rehabilitate an injury due to osteoporosis and reduce chronic pain. A custom treatment plan that keeps you on your feet will include exercises like walking, jogging, or dancing, and resistance exercises, such as weightlifting. These exercises can improve bone strength or reduce bone loss.

: Do you fit in this pre-measured world? Did you know people measuring 6'0' and above are simply too tall for a standard chair? They tend to stick their legs out or put them under the chair, leading to both hip and lower back pain. Is the pain because their core is weak, or because they simply don't fit in this pre-measured world?

That's right, poor posture is the problem. The symptoms are muscle tightness that leads to injury; such as headaches, TMJ, a herniated disc, and shoulder, hip, and knee injury. We keep focusing on the symptoms and repairing these painful occurrences, but fail to address the problem.

Posture correction for our 5'4" and below population is sitting all the way back in the chair with a small pillow on the spine, allowing for an opposite force on lower
back discs and muscles. A healthy knee position would be placing them equal to or lower than the hips. In addition, sometimes you will need a footstool.
Posture correction for 6'0 and above will need a seat cushion to raise the height of the chair and provide the proper body positioning for optimal health.
So let's address the problem! Check out the blog to learn more: https://www.tillmantherapy.com/blog

FACT OR MYTH: A bike seat should be high enough for the leg to be fully extended at the bottom of a pedal stroke.

MYTH: A bike seat should allow the knee to remain slightly bent at the bottom of a pedal stroke. If your are experiencing pain while cycling, you may need a bike fit. A personalized bike fit assessment can decrease the risk of neck, knee, back and hamstring injuries.

: Let’s Give Thanks for Planks! Planks are one of the most effective abdominal exercises you can do. They work to strengthen your entire core and strengthen your entire core and lower back, which improves stability, reduces your chance of injury, and maintains mobility.

Are planks intimidating for you? There are many variations of planks that can work for YOU! Try a low plank, high plank, side plank, or shoulder taps. Try holding for 30 seconds to a minute at a time, 3-5x per day and you’ll see benefits in no time!

Posture correction is the lost secret to getting healthier, more flexible, and staying away from those nagging injuries.

That’s right, poor posture is the problem. The symptoms are muscle tightness that leads to injury; such as headaches, TMJ, herniated disc, and shoulder, hip, and knee injuries. We keep focusing on the symptoms and repairing these painful occurrences but fail to address the problem. Often our days look like this: slouch for 8 hours, go stretch for an hour, then go home and get a little more slouching in, and repeat. Schedule an appointment with us at tillmantherapy.com so we can address the problem!

: Muscle Inhibition and Tight Muscles

Muscle inhibition affects the synergy between the primary mover and counterforce muscles. If only one muscle in the primary mover group is fully contracting, then the range of motion can become limited. The body can sense the joint instability and it will tighten the counterforce muscle to protect the joint.

For example: Think of your biceps and triceps. When you tighten your bicep, you turn off your tricep.

Most weaknesses are a combination of underuse, lack of direct training, and inhibition due to overused muscle groups. The optimum strength of any muscle requires one to address both! Some muscles are simply weak because they are tight and need stretching and need to be less trained.

MRI results can often be misleading. Often, an MRI of a healthy patient with no symptoms will show abnormalities, which may create concern for patients. While an MRI does show evidence of a problem in an area of concern, it does nothing to treat the actual condition

To help with your ailment, you will most likely need a course of remedial treatment prescribed by a licensed physical therapist. That's where we come in! Schedule an evaluation with our trained team of professionals at tillmantherapy.com

MYTH or FACT: Ultrasound and electrical stimulation are proven to aid recovery from low back pain.

MYTH: These types of passive treatments provide no long-term benefit, do not treat the underlying problem, and do not speed up healing time.

Aquatic exercises offer many benefits by providing both buoyancy and water resistance. Buoyancy can provide support for exercises that are difficult to perform on land, reduce the pressure on joints and assist with flexibility exercises. Water resistance can engage your muscles more fully, provide a great cardio workout and help you burn more calories in a shorter amount of time.

Deadlifts are a highly functional exercise that help strengthen the muscle groups that protect your spine.

It’s Tillman Tip Tuesday! Today’s is about posture!

“The easy part is making the pain go away. Keeping it away is an art! If you do not address posture, you are merely treating a symptom rather than truly fixing the issue. Be sure to learn and change bad habits to treat the problem, not just the pain!” - Mike Tillman, Physical Therapist & Owner
