  • Do your feet hurt?

    Do you have pain in or around your heel? Does this pain radiate throughout your foot? Do your first few steps in the morning cause a sharp or stabbing pain? You may have plantar fasciitis. What is the plantar fascia? Your foot has a thick fibrous ligament that runs from your heel all the way to your toes. This thick weblike ligament supports your arch and helps you walk. When the fascia is over stretched tiny tears can occur in the surface which can cause pain and inflammation and ultimately leading to plantar fasciitis. What causes it?

  • Why shoes, orthotics and assessments should all be individualized

    Foot pain? Back pain? Hip pain? Fixing the way your feet function can help alleviate some of these chronic issues. This is why your shoes, orthotics (if necessary) and your physical assessments should all be individualized. Although almost everyone can benefit from specific shoe recommendations, custom orthotics, and/or assessments. It can be a hassle to find shoes that orthotics fit inside. Do your shoes accommodate your orthotics? I recommend finding a stable, well built, neutral shoe. I know that the type of shoes you wear daily can vary depending on your activities and career. Just because you have orthotics doesn't mean your shoes have to be boring. Finding shoes to ....

You just have to find what works for you. Below I will give you some tips to help you continue working out despite injuries! Shoulders: Always start slowing and gradually increase load/intensity.

  • Don't use your insurance to pay for physical therapy

    You heard right...don’t use your insurance to pay for physical therapy. As a physical therapist, I hear all the time that people don’t go to see their physical therapist because it just isn’t worth it. “It costs too much, and I can do the exercises at home.” This is a common complaint.
