Had an appointment today with another orthopedist for a second opinion on his right foot turning inward. Doc assured us he has many athletes that have feet that turn inward. Said if no pain and doesn’t get worse we should just leave it alone! 👍🏻 #orthopedics#kids#athletes

Day 874/319/186: Many times people tend to think we have it easy or that it is fun to be injured. For one I do not know any injured person who found their injury fun. People think since we have people do things for us and go ahead of people makes it fun. From my experience that is one of the things I dislike the most about injuries. I like to be able to do things by myself. Yeah it’s nice to have people do things for us once and awhile but it hurts us knowing we cannot get our food, drinks, bathe, get in the car, etc by ourselves. As we get farther from the date of injury or surgery we are more capable of doing things, but that is when people start with the name calling like cripple or handicapped. If you never been through it yourself, I suggest people not to use those words. Recovery is not only a physical thing, it is a mental recovery as well. We are battling fear, and doubt constantly. When people say “oh you cannot do this because you are cripple.” It really adds to the doubt. We can do so much, but we follow our doctor’s orders and we want to recovery healthy. So our journey is not easy. Do as much as you can as safety as you can. You are the only one that knows your limit and potential. Do not listen to what others say, because you are trying your best and that’s all that matters. #kneerealignment#kneesurgery#kneeinjury#kneebrace#physicaltherapy#patellofemoralpainsyndrome#orthopedics#orthopedicsurgery#mpflreconstruction#tibialtubercleosteotomy#chondromalacia#dislocatedknee#subluxation#chronicpain#knee#kneeissues

★ ¿Puedo dejar que mi bebe utilice andaderas? ★ Definitivamente NO, si usted mamá o papá quiere a su bebe, no lo coloque jamás en una andadera o Babywalker ★ Las andaderas NO enseñan al bebe a caminar, de hecho producen un retardo en la adquisición de las habilidades motoras en el niño y la capacidad de caminar, ya que actúa como unas muletas limitando la oportunidad del bebe para desarrollar adecuadamente la musculatura del tronco, los miembros inferiores y la coordinación de los movimientos ★ Pero lo mas GRAVE es su relación directa con numerosos accidentes, la Academia Americana de Pediatría (AAP) ha solicitado suspender la fabricación de estos artefactos en los EEUU, y en Canada y Europa esta prohibida su fabricación y venta, la cual es castigada con multas y hasta prisión de 6 meses ★ La razón de esta prohibición es la relación directa entre el uso de la andadera y los accidentes en los niños que las usan, ya en 1999 un estimado de 8800 niños menores de 15 meses de edad fueron tratados en las salas de emergencias de los hospitales de los EEUU por accidentes en andaderas. Estas lesiones incluyen: ★Caídas la cuales son el origen de la mayoría de las lesiones 80%, sobre todo en escaleras, debido a que la andadera es pesada y la velocidad es mayor, el impacto a la cabeza es mas fuerte y el bebe no se puede liberar de la andadera al caer ★ Quemaduras las cuales representan el 5% de las lesiones por andaderas las cuales ocurren en el rostro y el tórax, debido a que el bebe choca con las mesas o la cocina que están a mayor altura y contienen algún liquido caliente, produciendo lesiones devastadoras que requieren hospitalización y cirugía en la mayoría de los casos ★ Envenenamientos ya que la andadera coloca al bebe en posición para alcanzar recipientes con sustancias toxicas como plantas, bebidas alcohólicas, detergentes, perfumes, cigarrillos, etc ★ Y otras lesiones como ahogamiento por caídas en piscinas, lesiones de la medula espinal, dientes rotos, lesiones oculares, estrangulamiento y fracturas de los dedos

This weekend, we had seven RN ONCs (Orthopedic Nurse Certified) attend the NAON Congress. These individuals have committed a great deal of personal time to grow their knowledge base and keep up with current trends, research and best practice in the field of orthopedics. Great job team!

May 22nd: staying orthopedically healthy in an office job can sometimes seem impossible. 🖥 So much sitting, so little neck extension, such lower back & hamstring tightness (oh and did I forget that most notorious plague of all computer work zones, carpal tunnel syndrome?). 🤚🏼 My struggle is as real as everybody else’s living the office life and I’m trying to zap my complacency before I wake up one day and my muscles are so tight from the endless forward tilt that I can hardly unwind them anymore (without a massive intervention, anyway). I tend to be of the mindset that “doctors can always fix it” but it’s not always that easy once the years of damage have been done. Pictured here is my @varidesk standing desk - one of the tools that I’m trying to incorporate into my daily life. They say to do a mixture of sitting and standing (30 minutes one way, 30 minutes the other, etc.) throughout your day. I haven’t yet been that consistent - usually I get so immersed in whatever task I’m working on that I forget to switch it up throughout the day! My goal for tomorrow is to do this consistently in 30 minute increments throughout the entire 8-hour day and see how I feel afterwards. 🎩 #varidesk#standingdesk#officelife#officehealth#officeergonomics#ergonomics#licensedmassagetherapist#massagetherapistsofinstagram#manualtherapist#lmt#massagetherapist#orthopedics#physicaltherapy#musclehealth#healthandwellness#occupationalhealth#occupationalhealthandsafety
To Bend or Not to Bend: Part 3
Once you feel comfortable and confident that you have found a position for your lower back laying flat, it’s time to move into a hands and knees (quadruped) position.
This position challenges the hips and shoulder girdle more than the previous, but the intent is the same.
We are working to maintain your comfortable spinal position while using your hips to be the main joint of movement, which will translate to bending and lifting through your hips versus your spine.
You only need to sit back as far as you feel comfortable and/or being able to keep your spinal position. In the second video, I have incorporated the use of a foam roller to allow me to feel how far I can hip hinge before I need to stop.
Once this position is mastered, check back tomorrow for the next step!

We’re back with Thinking Tuesday! Were you able to find the differences between last week’s Whiplash and Neck Sprain/Strain? If not, access the Complete Rehab Guide app to help you make the differential diagnosis .
The last leading cause is Cervicogenic Headaches which affect females more than males especially with sedentary office occupations. .
Definition: Unilateral headaches associated with neck region symptoms that are aggravated with movement. .
Reported Findings: Non-continuous headaches with referred pain to the cranium .
Examination: Limited mobility, substandard test on craniocervical flexion test, deep flexor endurance test, positive cervical flexion-rotation test and headache reproduced with ipsilateral posterior provocation of cervical myofascia and/or joints .
Therapeutic Exercise: Always begin with patient education to optimize posture to reduce stress on cervical spine and surrounding musculature. Restore upper quarter muscle length and strength, improve cervical ROM especially 0-C1, cervical strength and motor control. .
To keep learning about cervicogenic headaches, continue your education at PhysioU http://bit.ly/2I8K8Jw and review the entire section on Cervical spine complete with information for your evaluation to your interventions, along with what to say to the patient during your session! Don’t miss out! .
