Frozen Shoulder

 

 

How to Treat Frozen Shoulder

 

Are your shoulder joints stiff? Do you have trouble performing daily tasks due to pain in your shoulders? You may be experiencing early symptoms of frozen shoulder, also known as adhesive capsulitis. At United Rehab Physical Therapy, our physical therapy in Ronkonkoma will help treat your frozen shoulder and educate you on the necessary ways to care for your condition.

 

 

What is frozen shoulder?

 

Frozen shoulder is a condition where the shoulder joint doesn’t have space to move properly, therefore leaving the joint stiff with a limited range of mobility. The shoulder capsule becomes tighter and develops adhesions which contributes to the joint’s low range in motion.

 

 

Who’s at risk?

 

Most people who have experienced frozen shoulder will develop it after an injury. However, there several potential causes of this condition. A few risk factors that may expose you to frozen shoulder are listed below:

 

  • Diabetes significantly increases your chances of developing a frozen shoulder.

 

  • Individuals with thyroid disorders are also at an elevated risk.

 

  • Those who wear a shoulder sling for extended periods post-surgery heighten their chance for getting frozen shoulder.

 

  • Frozen shoulder may also occur if your shoulder must remain in place for an extended period due to a recent operation or stroke.

 

 

Stages of Frozen Shoulder

 

There are three stages of frozen shoulder called “freezing,” “frozen,” and “thawing.” Each of these stages will have varying recovery times. However, a frozen shoulder may take up to three years to completely heal. The three stages are listed below:

 

Freezing: Pain will gradually become more intense, making the shoulder joint more difficult to move. This stage lasts a minimum of 6 weeks and a maximum of 9 months.

 

Frozen: Pain either remains the same as it was in the first stage or gradually declines. The shoulder has limited mobility and remains stiff during this stage which can last from a minimum of 4 months to 6 months.

 

Thawing: It becomes easier to move your shoulder and mobility may return to normal. Although the pain fades, it may revisit occasionally. The thawing stage ranges from 6 months to 2 years.

 

 

 

Treatments

 

Although there are many treatments, physical therapy is the most common way to heal a frozen shoulder. The goal of physical therapy is to stretch out the joint and make progress towards regaining any lost motion. Along with stretching, it is important to complete at-home exercises to reach recovery as quickly as possible. At United Rehab Physical Therapy, our physical therapy in Ronkonkoma will work with you through gentle exercises that will help regain mobility in the shoulder. Here are a few simple at-home exercises you can perform:

 

  • Crossover arm stretch

  • Forward flexion

  • External rotation

 

If you feel that you’re experiencing pain or stiffness in your shoulder, you may be developing frozen shoulder. At United Rehab Physical Therapy, our physical therapy in Ronkonkoma will ensure that you receive the proper treatment.

 


 

Osteoporosis

 

 

 

 

 

Osteoporosis is a common disease that can affect anyone at any age causing the thinning and weakening of the bones. Another word used to describe osteoporosis is “porous bone.” An osteoporotic patient’s bone structure becomes very thin and “porous,” often resulting from poor nutrition and aging of the bones. Because of this, it does make it difficult for the bone to withstand the normal force that is applied in typical everyday activities. If you’re in need of help, our physical therapy in Ronkonkoma at United Rehab Physical Therapy can get you on the path to recovery today.

 

 

Having osteoporosis means your bones have lost its healthy density developing an abnormal tissue structure. As the bone becomes less dense, they gradually weaken until they fall victim to frequent breaks or fractures. It is highly recommended for those who are 50 years or older and have broken a bone, to consult with our physical therapy in Ronkonkoma in order to strengthen the supporting muscle tissues.

 

Osteoporosis can be caused by the following factors:

  • Having a thin and small body frame

  • Genetics

  • Hormone imbalance - specifically estrogen in women and androgen in men

  • Lack of exercise

  • Calcium deficient diet

  • Poor nutrition and poor health

 

With certain exercises and treatment programs, we can help reduce osteoporotic pain and prevent bone fractures.

 

 

 

Prevention of Osteoporosis

 

By following a certain lifestyle, osteoporosis is a very preventable disease. To live this type of lifestyle, a proper diet, vitamin supplementation, and exercise can work wonders. For those that would like to prevent and reduce the risk of developing osteoporosis, knowing the factors, especially the ones listed above, is extremely important. It is highly advised that you consult with our physical therapy in Ronkonkoma to evaluate your options if you are at risk.

 

Physical Therapy for Osteoporosis

 

Our goal with treatment for osteoporosis is to increase your strength and reduce chronic pain associated wit

 

h this disease.  Our program consists of customized exercises with our physical therapy in Ronkonkoma. These exercises will help to educate on ways to prevent injury as well as body conditioning. Exercises like balance training will help to reduce the risk of falling. The exercises also focus on proper posture to protect the spine from future fractures. We also educate our patients on ways to adjust their environment to protect their bone health.  

 

 

Osteoporosis is a widespread disease that affects millions of people per year. If you or someone you know is dealing with this disease and is looking for effective physical therapy in Ronkonkoma, United Rehab Physical Therapy can help.

 


 

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Did уоu knоw cаrраl tunnel syndrome can be treated with physical therapy? Our physical therapy in Ronkonkoma at United Rehab Physical Therapy can help determine the right treatment to alleviate symptoms caused by CTS.

 

Cаrраl tunnel ѕуndrоmе is a condition in which a nеrvе, thе median nerve to be exact, is compressed in thе wriѕt area. To avoid реrmаnеnt nеrvе damage, you should bе trеаtеd as early as possible by a physical thеrарiѕt in order to alleviate this pressure. Symptoms uѕuаllу bеgin gradually and then worsen over time, often appearing episodic at first. Symptoms include burning, tingling, itching, аnd/оr numbnеѕѕ in the palm, thumb, indеx, аnd middlе fingеrѕ with the dominant hand usually affected first.

 

Repetitive motion such аѕ typing, knitting, or twiѕting оf thе forearm аnd wriѕt is a  common cause of CTS. Suсh асtivitiеѕ саn lеаd tо nеrvе еntrарmеnt, whiсh iѕ a major соntributing factor. If these symptoms start to arise, consulting with our physical therapy in Ronkonkoma at United Rehab Physical Therapy can help put you on the right path to recovery.  

 

Nеrvе entrapment can bе caused bу many things, including the very ѕmаll саrраl bоnеѕ оf thе wriѕt. Did уоu know thеrе аrе 27 bоnеѕ in each hаnd? If a few оf these bоnеѕ shift or become miѕаlignеd, thеу can put рrеѕѕurе on the median nerve which iѕ соnѕidеrеd a tуре of nerve entrapment.

 

A common way CTS develops is through repetitive motion. If your workplace or daily activities include repetitive tasks such as prolonged handwriting, typing, playing video games, or forceful gripping such as the use of power tools, over an extended time this can cause strain to your wrist, therefore, increasing the swelling and compression of your median nerve. Because the median nerve travels from the forearm to the hand in the wrist, when repetitive motion occurs, it inflames the ligaments and tendons causing pain, numbness, and loss of strength. Therefore, make sure you are taking frequent breaks and alternate tasks if you are doing something that requires a repetitive prolonged motion. Minimizing the stress that you put on your hands and wrists when engaged in repetitive motion can help relieve tension and pain.

 

For many pregnant women, CTS symptoms can develop during the third trimester. The еxресting mоthеr'ѕ hands, wriѕtѕ and аnklеѕ can swell due to the natural increase of fluid in the body. When this hарреnѕ the swelling can саuѕе nerve entrapment in the wrist and produce similar ѕуmрtоmѕ to that of carpal tunnel. Usually, a few dауѕ tо wееkѕ after the baby iѕ born, the ѕwеlling drаѕtiсаllу dесrеаѕеѕ аnd thе ѕуmрtоmѕ ѕubѕidе.

 

Treatment options for CTS can include:

 

  • Joint mobilization

  • Strеngthеning аnd stretching exercises

  • Applying cold packs tо rеduсе inflammation

  • Resting the affected hand and wriѕt

  • Avoiding асtivitiеѕ that may worsen symptoms

  • Immobilizing thе wriѕt in a splint tо avoid twisting or bеnding

  • In severe cases, surgery


 

Thе mоѕt соmmоn surgical рrосеdurе done is open саrраl tunnel ѕurgеrу. During this surgery thе transverse саrраl ligаmеnt iѕ cut to open the space fоr thе impinged median nerve. Thе surgery iѕ uѕuаllу done in an outpatient setting with lосаl аnеѕthеѕiа. It is usually rесоmmеndеd that you nоt lift hеаvу оbjесtѕ fоr uр to three months аftеr thе ореn саrраl tunnel ѕurgеrу. Our physical therapy in Ronkonkoma can assist you with post-surgical recovery by providing you with strengthening and stretching exercises that allow you to most effectively regain proper motioning.

 


 

Muscle Spasms

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ever notice that when you’re exercising or working, all of a sudden your leg starts getting tight or you start having a spasm in your hand, foot, or back? These minor annoyances might just be a random occurrence, possibly because you’re dehydrated or that muscle is being overused and generally stop on their own. However, if they start occurring more frequently they might be a sign of a potential problem. Here at United Rehab Physical Therapy, our physical therapy in Ronkonkoma will work with you to determine what is causing these issues and will come up with an effective treatment plan that will correct the problem.

 

Our physical therapy in Ronkonkoma at United Rehab will evaluate the cause of the spasms and tightness and from there create a treatment plan that bests works for the patient. If the spasm and tightness is very mild where it isn’t causing the patient any discomfort, moist heat treatments may be the most effective treatment and will be used during numerous sessions. However, if the heat doesn’t seem to be working by itself your therapists will introduce electrical muscle stimulation(TENS,IFT,EMS) as part of your treatment as well as continuing with the moist heat.

 

What is electrical muscle stimulation (TENS, IFT, EMS)?

 

(TENS) also referred to as transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation, (EMS) is referred to as Electrical Muscle Stimulation, both of these devices use low voltage electrical impulses to stimulate the muscles. Though they use the same type of system they target two different parts of the body. TENS stimulates nerves by targeting the nerves. It prevents the pain signals from reaching the brain, while EMS targets the muscles by mimicking the central nervous system, this causes the muscles to contract. (IFT) also referred to as Interferential Therapy, this form of therapy uses mid-frequency electrical stimulus to remove muscle sprains, spasms, and strains. IFT, unlike TENS AND EMS, works differently. Instead of stimulating the muscles it creates a massaging effect on the affected area. IFT also causes the body to naturally release endorphins and enkephalins which in turn reduces the amount of pain.

 

Based on the symptoms and where the patient is experiencing pain our therapists at United Rehab Physical Therapy in Ronkonkoma, will evaluate the patient and from there will determine which device will provide the most relief for them.

United Rehab Hands On Physical Therapy is excellent at treating patients dealing with Vertigo on a daily basis.

Hamstring Injuries

 

For those of you who have strained a hamstring, you know how painful and debilitating it can be to your everyday lifestyle. United Rehab Physical Therapy in Ronkonkoma, New York specializes in treating and preventing hamstring strains. A hamstring strain usually occurs when performing quick, sharp, movement such a jumping, running, pivoting, or even reaching for a ball. It can cause symptoms such as:

 

  • Severe pain in the upper leg/ buttocks

  • Bruising

  • Swelling

  • Muscle spasms

 

In Ronkonkoma, our physical therapists have found that there are many factors that contribute to hamstring strains, which can be easily prevented. A few are:

 

  • An imbalance of strength between the hamstrings and quadriceps

  • Not warming up properly

  • Having fatigued muscles

  • Tremendous force

 

When an imbalance of strength between the hamstring and quads occur, a person becomes susceptible to a hamstring strain. At United Rehab Physical Therapy in Ronkonkoma, we understand that the difference in strength between the hamstring and quad is a common factor for strains. The reason being is because the quad is stronger and the hamstring uses more energy in order to keep up. Avoiding a warm up is also a risk factor because the muscle is cold and tight. If the muscle is fatigued from training it becomes more valuable to a hamstring strain. Also, tremendous force, such a burst of speed while exercising, can cause a hamstring strain. On the bright side, at United Rehab Physical Therapy in Ronkonkoma, we discovered that there are many ways to avoiding hamstring strains.

 

Some tips our physical therapists in Ronkonkoma recommend for avoiding hamstring strains are:

 

  • Regular stretching

  • Strengthening exercises for the hamstring and quadriceps

  • Staying in shape when participating in a sport

  • Regular conditioning

  • Applying ice for 15 minutes after exercise

  • Decrease intensity of workout

Spinal Compression Fractures

 

The spine is one of the most important bone structures in our body. The reason being is that it helps us stand straight and connects all of our nerves to benefit the function of our body. Afterall, our spine is made of 33 bones, known as vertebrae. Evidently, this provides the main support for our body, allowing us to stand upright, bend, and twist. As an essential bone structure, it is also delicate, making it vulnerable to a sprain and fracture. A spinal fracture is very different from a broken arm or leg. A fracture in the spine can lead to pinched or damaged spinal nerves and can even harm the spinal cord. In other words, injuries can happen from a wide variety of factors. Depending on how severe the injury is, one may not experience pain in day-to-day life.

 

As mentioned previously, there are different kinds of fractures that can happen throughout the spine. To explain, a compression fracture occurs most often in the lower back, the middle of the back, or the lumbar and thoracic spine. As we grow older, spine bones can weaken. As a result, a simple activity such as twisting, coughing, or even laughing can cause a compression fracture. These compression fractures are the reason that bones break down in the front area, whereas the back area remains solid. That is why these small breakdowns can actually cause your spine to slump forward and lead to a hunchback.

 

Luckily, there are ways to combat the fracture. Our physical therapy in Ronkonkoma can evaluate your medical history, any medications you are on, and your current symptoms. Physical therapy usually begins after the fracture has been deemed "stable.” A physical therapist will perform an examination of your spine and feel areas that you experience pain or tenderness.Furthermore, they evaluate the strength in the spine, legs, and shoulders. However, surgery is rarely needed in cases of compression fracture. Physical therapy in Ronkonkoma is one of the top choices in relieving pain and other ailments. Therefore, specialists can help you regain the strength and mobility that you may have lost while the fracture healed. An example of a  treatment plan may include:

 

  • Pain Management

  • Flexibility Exercises

  • Strengthening Exercises

  • Posture and Movement Education

  • Fall Prevention

  • Referral to a Nutritionist

 

At United Rehab Physical Therapy, our therapists are highly trained to deal with spinal compression fracture. We understand the pain and trauma that many patients go through after an injury. So, stop into our physical therapy in Ronkonkoma or any of our other locations for a consultation and evaluation! We look forward to meeting with you!

Specific exercises may also be implemented to strengthen the muscles in order to prevent future injury. Our physical therapist can also teach you how to reduce stress on the joints.


 

Are There Any Risk Factors To Be Aware of?

 

There are certain factors that predispose you to bursitis, including some of the following:

 

  • Job functions

    • If your job requires you to do a lot of heavy lifting as well as repetitive movements, you are at an increased risk for irritating your bursae.
