5 Things You May NOT Know About Physical Therapy!

  1. Physical Therapists hold advanced degrees:

All physical therapy schools now have transitioned to a 3-year entry-level doctorate program as the scope of practice has grown. We are trained to differentially diagnose your condition and treat it appropriately.

  • Physical Therapy can treat headaches:

There are certain type of headaches that are “cervicogenic” in nature, meaning that they originate in the neck. PT can be a great way to treat headaches without having to use medication.

  • “No pain, No gain” is not always our motto:

Yes, there are some conditions that may require more aggressive approaches to get you back to feeling normal but those are few and far between. Many times our treatments are not painful and should make you feel better when you leave our clinic.

  • Physical Therapy can (and should) address your posture:

Posture plays a large role in many orthopedic conditions from poor desk ergonomics to improper standing and walking posture. Posture assessment and treatment can restore normal mechanics.

  • Physical Therapy can be a great alternative to surgery:

Surgery is not your only option. Much of the research has found that physical therapy can provide the same, if not better, outcomes as surgery for many conditions.

Lakeshore Physical Therapy – What is Your Core?

We always hear about “core strength” but what does this really mean? People often have the perception that the core is only made up of your abdominal muscles. It is actually the sturdy link in a chain connecting your upper and lower body. By working on pure rectus abdominis strength (sit ups, for example) you are not really working on core strength and could potentially even add stress to your spine. The core has three-dimensional depth and functional movement in all three planes.  In addition to the superficial rectus abdominis and gluteals, the core also includes deeper muscles (transversus abdominis, multifidis, obliques, diaphragm and pelvic floor). These muscles all work together as a stabilizer unit and force transfer center, rather than a prime mover. We can start to achieve core stability in static movements (plank) then progress to more dynamic patterns (single leg dead lift).  Bridging is a common core stabilization exercise that can be modified from very basic to advanced. Keeping the body’s stabilizer muscles strong will not only improve your athletic performance, but it will help in life’s everyday tasks. Bending, reaching and twisting are movements we do daily and without adequate stability of the core, issues such low back, hip or knee pain can occur.  If you have any questions about your strength or core stability, please contact Lakeshore Physical Therapy or visit our website to learn more about our services at www.lakeshore-pt.com.

However, there is much more programming available through Fitmetrix. Register now (LakeshoreSF Fitmetrix Registration) and you’ll have access to keep statistics from your favorite classes, follow the in-class leaderboards, reserve your favorite bike, participate in games & competitions, and so much more!

Welcome our Newest Tennis Professional, Cassidy Spearman! 

“I grew up playing tennis in Southern California and continued onto the University of Missouri, graduating with a Bachelor’s Degree in Strategic Communication. I love to travel and spent the year after I graduated traveling around different areas of the world. I have ventured to over 20 countries in 4 different continents. 

Throughout my tennis journey I was able to accomplish many different accolades. With a sound high school and junior career, it allowed for me to continue on to play at Mizzou achieving a successful collegiate career. Playing tennis in the SEC was an incredible experience and spurred me into my coaching career. I was previously coaching for the University of Iowa women’s tennis, and now I am the assistant coach for DePaul’s women’s tennis. Go Blue Demons!” – Coach Cassidy

Group Fitness and Yoga Studio Etiquette Reminders 

To contribute to a safe, healthy and positive experience for all please …

  • Be on time and stay until the end of class
  • Keep cell phones on silent or out of the room
  • Keep personal belongings stored in lockers
  • Store shoes outside of yoga studio 
  • Refrain from personal conversation during class
  • Put away equipment and towels, wipe away sweat and leave your area clean

What is Your Core?

We always hear about “core strength” but what does this really mean? People often have the perception that the core is only made up of your abdominal muscles.   It is actually the sturdy link in a chain connecting your upper and lower body.  By working on pure rectus abdominis strength (sit ups, for example) you are not really working on core strength and could potentially even add stress to your spine.  The core has three-dimensional depth and functional movement in all three planes.  In addition to the superficial rectus abdominis and gluteals, the core also includes deeper muscles (transversus abdominis, multifidis, obliques, diaphragm and pelvic floor).  These muscles all work together as a stabilizer unit and force transfer center, rather than a prime mover.   We can start to achieve core stability in static movements (plank) then progress to more dynamic patterns (single leg dead lift).  Bridging is a common core stabilization exercise that can be modified from very basic to advanced.  Keeping the body’s stabilizer muscles strong will not only improve your athletic performance, but it will help in life’s everyday tasks. Bending, reaching and twisting are movements we do every day and without adequate stability of the core, issues such low back, hip or knee pain can occur.  If you have any questions about your strength or core stability, please contact Lakeshore Physical Therapy or visit our website to learn more about our services at www.lakeshore-pt.com.    Illinois Center: 312- 801-8440, Lincoln Park: 773-770-2419

Coming up alongside Tennis and Golf – Here Come’s Pickleball

A new favorite pastime among Baby Boomers, Pickleball, combines elements of badminton, tennis and ping-pong.  Its strong appeal started with older adults because of the smaller court, lower net, and slower ball speed.  The rules are fairly straight forward and easy to learn (see the Lakeshore Physical Therapy blog for the rule overview at:

http://lakeshore-pt.blogspot.com/ ).  Over the past decade, the Pickleball craze is taking hold at all age levels and even being introduced to teenagers in physical education classes and as an intramural sport on college campuses.  According to the USA Pickle Ball Association (USAPA), the sport has seen a 650% increase in numbers over the past six years.  It is a great family sport that can involve multi generations.  It can be played as singles or doubles, indoors or out.  The wooden paddle and ball are fairly affordable.  All of these factors make the sport’s future strong.

Lakeshore Sport & Fitness is planning an Intro to Pickleball class on Sundays in the fall of 2019.  Please contact LPRacquet@LakeshoreSF.com for more information.  As always Lakeshore Physical Therapy is conveniently located on the catwalk for you with injury questions or concerns.  www.lakeshore-pt.com

Pre and Postpartum Care at Lakeshore Physical Therapy

Many physical changes happen to a woman’s body during pregnancy and quite often the expertise of a physical therapist is a solid resource.   More than two-thirds of women experience low back pain during pregnancy.  It is common, but treatable, with a PT program of proper body mechanics, posture education, manual therapy, stretching and stabilization exercises.  Other pre and postpartum issues that are successfully treated in physical therapy are pelvic pain, urinary incontinence, sacroiliac joint dysfunction, diastasis recti, wrist/ hand pain, abdominal weakness, and neck pain. Pregnancy is a time of change for the body and the changes occur rapidly.  Lakeshore Physical Therapy has experienced physical therapists to evaluate and treat the musculoskeletal conditions that commonly occur during all phases of pregnancy.  Feel free to call us at 773-770-2419 (LP) or 312-801-8440 (IC) to schedule an evaluation and stay pain free during and after pregnancy.
