  1. The human body is, in essence, a machine. It is a combination of multiple systems that interconnect to create certain actions/movements that require an energy expenditure to produce a desired outcome. Stress from repetitive activity to the system is inevitable, regardless if it is a human or, let's say a sport car. Maintenance & conditioning is the key to whether the stress can be reduced to produce an environment of healing to the system. Providing the body not only proper nutrition to refuel itself and rebuild its needed stores as well as properly strengthening/stabilizing the proper

  3. Hello Typhoon92....what's happening with the shoulders? With the off season here, it may be a good time to see what might be possible to rehab as much as possible and put off any further problems so you can keep with playing and living with less pain. Let me know if I can help in any way.
  4. PF is, in simple terms, the tissue that connects from the ball of the foot, under the heel and then becomes the Achilles' tendon. Poor arch support from bad shoes/barefoot walking can increase the symptoms of irritation to this tissue but this is merely the symptoms being provoked, it may not be the true problem for the PF. Couple things to try..... 1. Freeze a water bottle, golf or racket ball. Sit in a chair and place the frozen object under your arch and use your body weight to press into the object while you roll the foot back and forth (5-10/minutes a day) 2. Calf stretches
  5. Hey Tim. I just had a couple questions to see if I may be able to help any. 1. How long ago was the injury? 2. Any hip/knee injuries prior? 3. What had you been doing with the PT that worked and didn't work? 4. Any prior strengthening/stretching routine? Any current strengthening/stretching routine? 5. How is your range of motion of the knee, hip, hamstring? Do you feel tight or limited in your motion? 6. Lastly, what motion or activity will you notice the pain and what do you do to relieve it? Thanks.
  6. Tendon injuries due to overuse, particularly in the hands where the muscles are small to begin with, need rest to heal. I agree that a glove that provides a "wider" grip will help some but really your conditioning is due to over use of an extensor tendon (which is why it probably hurts, yet feels good, to stretch the thumb down). In order to stop the pain, you just eliminate the motion that provides the pain. You need to brace to heal a tendon injury, use ice to reduce inflammation, stretch but not to the point of pain (since pain will only make the problem worse). Lastly, you need to stre
  7. Good luck with the surgery, I am sure you will come out of it well and ready to rehab! Meniscus injuries are all different and depends on the location of the injury and what need to be cleaned or repaired in determining rehab prognosis. Typically, there is some restriction in weight bearing for 1-4 weeks (again depends on surgery and what was done). Meniscus having very poor blood supply which slows down healing and leaves the area at risk for further injury if activity/stress is impose to early. Likely you will,have some PT following your surgery and they will know how to safely progress
  8. This provides some good food for thought. Cortisone, or any other anti inflammatory medication for that matter, does have its place to help keep those of us who are active.....moving! However, all an anti inflammatory is doing is providing immediate pain relief of pain chemical causing discomfort and inflammation to an injured area. This does not mean it FIXES the actual problem that is giving you the pain symptoms, which is what is making you seek out the medication in the first place. Anti inflammatories provide a window of opportunity to allow for pain relief in order to attend to
  9. Few sports are as individually specific as that of golf! Do you ever look at your golf game and wonder....What is missing from allowing me to reach my goal? I am curious of what those questions are that seem to frustrate you from achieving your golf performancce goals. So I am posing this question: IF YOU COULD HAVE 1 INDIVIDUAL GOLF RELATED QUESTION ANSWERED, WHAT WOULD IT BE? I can't wait to see what is on your mind!
