Fix it

It has been way too long since my first and only blog.  I apologize. The daily activity of treating and billing and regular life hinders my blogging.  I sit down with a drained brain and my blog ideas are blah.  But I am going to try to just share observations that I hope may help people gain insight about PT, moving and caring for their bodies.

Each individual brings to the session their physical make up, their perceptions of what to expect and their own history.  Some clients come to therapy wanting a quick fix.

Some days it is all about the butt............

   The butt or shall I say the gluteals.  A woman comes into the office with back pain.  She bends over from her waist to get her insurance cards out of her purse which she has placed on the floor. Hmmm....that kind of bending done a lot will cause fatigue and eventually back pain.  
     On observation, the woman's buttocks is very flat -she does not seem to have much bulk to the gluteal muscles that make up the buttocks.  She is likely bending the way she is-from her waist-because she does not have a great deal of strength.
