The knees are one of the most used joints in our bodies as we rely on our knees for walking and running, bending, lifting, jumping and everything in between. Our knees have to support our body weight and at the same time carry out the range of movement. Anyone who has ever experienced a knee injury can relate the pain and how much inconvenient and limiting it can be when the knees don’t function properly.
Low Back Pain affects over 80% of the population at some point in their lives and affects their well-being. Back pain is the most common cause of disability these days and a common reason for lost work days. Preventative rehabilitation programs that focus on strengthening the lumbar muscles combined with core stability and proprioception will reduce the incidence of low back pain.
Does your work involve sitting or standing for extended periods of time? If you are on your feet all day, are the shoes you wear supportive enough? Do you have back discomfort after a full day at work? Do you sit in front of a computer monitor and feel pain and weakness in your neck and shoulders?
Physical Therapy helps people get back full strength and movement in key parts of the body after an illness or injury. Physical therapy doesn’t just help a person rebuild strength and range of motion, though — it also can help someone manage pain, whether that pain is caused by bad posture, an injury, or a disease like arthritis. When done properly and consistently, physical therapy can help prevent permanent damage and recurring problems.
Spondylosis refers to degeneration of the spine. Most often, the term spondylosis is used to describe osteoarthritis of the spine, but it is also commonly used to describe any manner of spinal degeneration. Symptoms of spondylosis can include:
Localized pain in the area of back or neck. Pain may shoot up to the limb if a herniated disc causes the pinched nerve. A large disc herniation in the region of the lumbar spine may cause nerve compression and pain that starts in the low back and travels down the leg into the foot. This is called sciatica.
