❄️ Let it snow! ❄️

The DMV area was hit with another coating of winter weather, and after the last storm, some of us learned our backs were not up for the task of shoveling.

As with any activity, if you haven't prepared your body to perform the task you are at a greater chance for injury.

Physical Therapist Kevin Dandy has his 4 tips to help prevent additional backaches:

❄️ If the snow is heavy, clear the snow more frequently to help reduce the load
❄️ Take rest breaks as needed
❄️ Avoid repetitive bending, lifting and twisting if you are not prepared for it
❄️ Use the shovel to push the snow like a plow

💪 with PT John and his patient Marius out-flexing us all!

Marius just finished his first phase of rehab and is scheduled to have his collar bone plate removed AHEAD of schedule.

HOW WE DID THIS: Through manual therapy, therapeutic exercise, and blood flow restriction training (BFR) John maximized his range of motion!

Who else is flexing on the second Monday of 2022?

When was the last time you saw a Physical Therapist in the operating room?!

To effectively rehab our spine surgery patients, we have to fully understand the surgery.

PT Kelly Nottingham traded in her VTFC polo for some scrubs to shadow Dr. Schuler and his PA Thao Allen performing a cervical disc replacement surgery. Talk about taking our game up a notch!

Moments like these give us appreciation for the intricacy of these surgeries, and highlights the strong bond between the surgeons at VSI and our physical therapists in providing comprehensive care for our patients.

Look at Kelly and Melissa stepping up their myofascial release game 💁‍♀️

Kelly and Melissa recently traveled to complete Level 1 of a Myofascial Release Course with John F. Barnes, PT, who has been treating patients since 1960. So what exactly is myofascial release all about? Let’s break it down:

➡️ Helps treat muscular and fascial restrictions throughout the body
➡️ Can be used on any patient who is having pain caused from trauma, inflammatory responses or surgical procedures
➡️ It's a more gentle form of soft tissue massage and has no adverse effects, which allows us to use it at any point during someone's rehab.

Sounds too good to be true, but it’s not - give a try for yourself! 703.709.1116

Since most of us don’t have cranes around to pick up our heavy objects, our Athletic Trainer Jason Arnett uses a simple analogy to help us remember proper lifting form to prevent injury and pain.

Lift like a CRANE!

It’s remarkable how these two objects (your back and spine when deadlifting, and the crane behind Josie) look and function the same.

Let’s break this comparison down:

➡️ The crane is used to pick up heavy things off the ground.

➡️ The deadlift is used to pick up heavy things off the ground.

Soccer players! Have you felt your knee “shift” when cutting across the field, followed by painful swelling and a loss in range of motion?

Here you’ll see that this balance exercise ⬆️ helps to improve single leg stability and proprioception (your body's sense of self-movement and joint position), training the entire lower extremity chain and core, which is imperative for athletes.

Have you dipped into our HydroWorx aquatic treadmill? This first in the region machine is perfect for ACL warriors, hip replacements, ankle conditions, and even those just looking to get a solid indoor workout in these changing temperatures.

- Reduces impact to create a near weightless environment
- Therapeutic temperature creates a cooling effect on the area of incision, providing relief
- Buoyancy effect that allows for greater range of motion than in full gravity

The final days of are upon us, but not without a feature on seasoned veteran Physical Therapist John Fainsan!

John stopped by to teach us about this technique called “box breathing”

Box breathing is a technique that military, firefighters, and law enforcement use to help them manage stress.
It consists of 4 phases:
1. A 4-second breath in.
2. A 4-second breath-hold.
3. A 4-second breath out,
4. Another 4-second breath-hold.

What happens when you ask a physical therapist to unpuzzle a Rubik’s Cube? They smash it in under 2 minutes!

Our physical therapists are talented in more ways than one! Lyndsey McIntyre is not only a stellar soccer coach at Oakcrest School and a fantastic PT, she can also complete a rubik’s cube in less than 2 minutes.

What does treating our patients’ conditions and completing a rubik’s cubes have in common? Both are fun and exciting challenges that Lyndsey ACES!
