Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction (SIJD) is a musculoskeletal problem that may account for up to 30% of lower back pain. SI joint pain is typically located in a focal area at or around the PSIS (Posterior Superior Iliac Spine) at the attachment of the long dorsal ligament on the sacrum (tailbone). SIJD is either the result of hypermobility (too much motion) or hypomobility (too little motion or compression).
Functional Dry Needling is a technique used by Physical Therapists to speed healing, relieve pain by decreasing muscle hypertonicity, increasing joint range of motion, and correcting movement dysfunction through releasing a trigger point adhesion. Dry needling creates a twitch response which is a localized, reflexive response of a dysfunctional area. This twitch response returns the muscle to a normal state by releasing inflammatory chemicals from the trigger point and restoring blood flow to the area.
An estimated 300,000 total hip replacements are performed each year in the United States, and that number is expected to nearly double by 2030. The most common reason is osteoarthritis, which can either be from age related changes, prior injury, obesity, or having a genetic component.
Hip replacements have become so routine that most patients will be up and walking the same days and discharged from the hospital ASAP.
PT360 is excited to announce the addition of blood flow restriction training to our clinic.
Blood Flow Restriction training (BFR) is a safe and effective training technique used to increase muscular size and strength using a FDA-approved tourniquet system. Weight training with BFR can recreate the stimulus of heavy resistance training except very low weight is used during the exercise.
