So I have to share with everyone my newest obsession. Many people have seen me running down Harbor view and you’ll still see me but I found something so much more amazing and better than running. I have recently been introduced to burn Boot Camp. I started going about two weeks ago and joined after about a week of a trial run. Last week I went five days in one week. Now I’m not gonna lie and say that I didn’t feel some delayed onset muscle soreness after the first couple sessions. I definitely was using muscles I have not used in a long time. There is so much more about this Burn Boot Camp than just a great exercise routine. It’s the instructors with their upbeat motivation. The fact that they know your name and every time you come in they say good morning and hello and give you a high-five. It’s the comradery between the other people in the class whether it’s at 5:30, 7:30 or nine on Saturday everyone is very motivating. If you’re looking for a great exercise program to get in shape this year I highly recommend giving Burn Boot camp a try. There are free classes on Saturday morning at 8 AM and 9 AM. It was a great work out 45 minutes, every day is a different thing. The instructors are fabulous they’re able to accommodate my 44-year-old knees after doing 15 marathons. They are motivating and encouraging I got my first real push up the other day. So they help you modify activities as needed. I am very excited about Burn Boot Camp!


Your abdominals and back muscles make up your core! They are very important in assisting with posture, every day movements and in order to prevent back pain they need to be strong! Pay attention to these!


Had a patient who came in for upper back and neck pain and I did dry needling with electrical stimulation and it worked! First treatment that has helped her! Very exciting!!!

If anyone hurts their back preparing for the hurricane, come in tomorrow! I will be there. Open and glad to help!!!


Doorway stretch!!! So helpful for the shoulders and posture! Find a doorway and place forearms on the door frames and lean in. I use right foot forward for 30 seconds then switch to the left. It can help decrease shoulder pain from RTC tendonitis and help improve posture! If you have any questions call Lowcountry Physical Therapy at 843-266-9200


I am so excited about the success I have with Dry Needling! It is an amazing tool that can be used by Physical Therapist to help with myofascial pain and promote healing and tissue extensibility!


POSTURE!!!!!!!! So important for neck and shoulder mobility. A good exercise to try is squeeze an imaginary pencil between your shoulder blades! And Chin Tucks!!!


Another graduation!! Katie and I thoroughly enjoyed working with Ellie!

Cupping therapy originates from Traditional Chinese Medicine. In the physical therapy world, cupping is used as a manual therapy technique called Myofascial Decompression. Suction from the cup is used to target the interface between the fascia and muscle and creates a tension force that helps to decrease adhesions between these layers, improve blood flow, and improve tissue extensibility. Cupping can be used by your physical therapist to improve range of motion and decrease pain. The type of cupping being performed in the following video is called “scraping” as the therapist move the cup up and down the skin to help break adhesions and improve posterior calf mobility.

Have pain after a workout? How to tell the difference between soreness and an injury.

Now that it’s been a few days since the Bridge Run, you may be asking yourself, why am I so sore? That is a good question. It is important to be able to tell the difference between normal delayed-onset muscle soreness (DOMS) and injury.

DOMS is caused by micro-trauma in muscle during exercise and is completely normal. DOMS is an aching, tightness, and/or tenderness type of pain that begins in the first 24 hours after exercise and last up to 72 hours. DOMS is usually located in a region of the body, like after running your hamstrings may be sore, and this typically would occur in both legs. Finally, and most importantly, DOMS-type pain will begin to go away with continued movement and stretching, so if you think you have some DOMS after the race, make sure to keep moving and stretch your hamstrings and calves!

An injury on the other hand, will most likely cause sharp pain and possibly swelling immediately after exercise lasting much longer than a few days and you may notice it during subsequent exercise bouts. After an injury, you can usually pinpoint the location of pain, like for instance after running, you may have knee pain or be able to press with one finger on a tendon or bone and feel pain. Lastly, after an acute injury, your pain will improve with rest and ice and will begin to get worse with continued movement.

Physical therapy can help identify whether you are suffering from DOMS or an injury. If you did suffer an injury after the race, physical therapy can help determine underlying impairments like weakness or mobility that could have contributed to the injury, and get you back to running injury-free!

Do you have pain in your shins that occurs during or after running, walking, or playing sports? “Shin splints”, or medial tibial stress syndrome (MTSS), is a common condition, affecting 35% of athletes and active people. MTSS occurs most often in females and people who are overweight, have fleet feet, or perform repetitive jumping and running activities. Common symptoms associated with MTSS include a dull ache in the front or inner part of the lower leg, pain during exercise, swelling in lower leg, and sometimes tingling in the feet. Physical therapy can help you recover! At Lowcountry Physical Therapy Clinic, a trained physical therapist can help you decrease the pain associated with MTSS and teach you exercises and stretches to help prevent further injury.
