Physical Therapy

Good vs Exceptional

Identifying a specific imbalance or dysfunction takes natural problem-solving skills.  An exceptional physical therapist uses keen observations, deductive reasoning, and asks the right questions to get to the root of the issue. Any therapist can give a general exercise program to strengthen an area, but drilling down to the key problem to fix the issue takes a higher amount of skill and tenacity.  Our practice uses clear differential diagnosis skills and testing to address the exact cause of pain.  At Lakeshore Physical Therapy, we realize that decisions about your health should never be just another case or a job and we do our best to convey that every day.  Check us out at: www.Lakeshore-pt.com

Based on Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, we will dive into the fundamental principles of living in a Yogic Way. Physical postures (asana), while being the most common form of yoga we see today, is only one of the eight components. The intention of this workshop is to discover the other seven limbs and how asana fits into a greater picture of spiritual and personal growth. Please wear comfortable clothes and bring a pen and notebook to the workshop as you may be asked to do some journaling or wish to take notes. Saturday, January 18 at 2-3:30pm in Yoga 1

Physical Therapy

Could your thumb pain be basal joint arthritis?  

Over time, the cartilage at the base of the thumb can break down and become inflamed, showing signs of arthritis. The condition is painful and can make everyday activities harder.  Wear and tear is typically the cause, so it’s most common among adults over 40 and those that perform repetitive or excessive hand movements.  Research (Journal of Orthopedic & Sports PT, 2013 Vol:43 Issue:4) reveals a combination of manual joint therapy, neural mobilization and active exercise is effective at treating pain of the thumb basal joint.  The Lakeshore Physical Therapy Instagram page shares thumb exercises to get you started, if you are experiencing pain.  Additional treatment options are available from our experienced physical therapists and no referral is required to get started!

Could your thumb pain be basal joint arthritis?  

Over time, the cartilage at the base of the thumb can break down and become inflamed, showing signs of arthritis. The condition is painful and can make everyday activities harder.  Wear and tear is typically the cause, so it’s most common among adults over 40 and those that perform repetitive or excessive hand movements.  Research (Journal of Orthopedic & Sports PT, 2013 Vol:43 Issue:4) reveals a combination of manual joint therapy, neural mobilization and active exercise is effective at treating pain of the thumb basal joint.  The Lakeshore Physical Therapy Instagram page shares thumb exercises to get you started, if you are experiencing pain.  Additional treatment options are available from our experienced physical therapists and no referral is required to get started!

Stay safe this winter and prevent slip related falls

As the temperature drops and snow begins to fall, the sidewalks here in Chicago are beginning to get slippery. The National Safety Council estimates falls account for nearly 300,000 injuries every year and the CDC reports that more than 800,000 people are hospitalized annually related to slip and fall injuries. Don’t be a statistic this winter and check out these tips for safe walking around the city:

  1. Take shorter steps.
  2. Lean slightly forward with your knees relaxed and slightly bent.
  3. Walk flat footed to increase surface contact with the ground.
  4. Keep your hands out of your pockets and hold them slightly out to your side. This will improve your balance and your hands will be ready to catch you if you do slip.
  5. Slow your speed and don’t get in a hurry.

If you do experience a fall related injury, our team is here to help! Find us at https://lakeshore-pt.com or on IG: @lakeshorephysicaltherapy

Come prepared to move a little, listen and learn, engage in an open and honest conversation about living mindfully as a yogi in the modern world and take away an enhanced understanding of the Chakra System. Please bring a pen and notebook to the workshop as you may be asked to do some journaling or wish to take notes.

Pain on the Bottom of Your Foot?
If you are experiencing pain on the bottom of your foot while walking, especially with your first few steps in the morning, you may be suffering from plantar fasciitis. The plantar fascia is a thick fibrous band along the bottom of your foot that can become inflamed, and over time, thickened due to increased stress. Consistent stretching of the calf and plantar fascia are main steps to treat this very painful condition.  You may also need to modify your recreational activities. Avoid walking barefoot around your house and try using supportive house slippers. Check out our recent Instagram post to learn how to properly stretch your calf and plantar fascia and get your pain-free pep back into your step!

Physical Therapy

Plantar Fasciitis

Pain in the bottom of your foot?

If you are experiencing pain on the bottom of your foot while walking, especially with your first few steps in the morning, you may be suffering from plantar fasciitis. The plantar fascia is a thick fibrous band along the bottom of your foot that can become inflamed, and over time, thickened due to increased stress. Consistent stretching of the calf and plantar fascia are main steps to treat this very painful condition. You may also need to modify your recreational activities. Avoid walking barefoot around your house and try using supportive house slippers. Check out our recent Instagram post to learn how to properly stretch your calf and plantar fascia and get your pain-free pep back into your step!

Physical Therapy

Freestyle It

The shoulder joint is one of the most complex and vulnerable joints in the body, as it sacrifices stability for range of motion. The freestyle stroke utilizes a wide range of motion and therefore, normal muscle firing sequence is imperative for pain-free swimming.  Freestyle can be broken down into 3 phases: hand entry/reach, pull through, and recovery. Each of these phases requires high demand and activity from multiple muscles at different times. Colwin et al (Breakthrough Swimming. Champaign, IL: Human Kinetics; 2002) utilized EMG analysis to measure muscle activity throughout the freestyle stroke. These muscles were the most active in their respective stages:

  • Reach – Deltoid, Upper trapezius, Rhomboids
  • Pull Through – Pectoralis major, Serratus Anterior, Latissimus Dorsi, Subscapularis
  • Recovery – Posterior/middle Deltoid, Rhomboids, Serratus Anterior, Infraspinatus

So why is this important?  Due to the repetitive nature of swimming, it can place stress on the shoulder girdle musculature and glenohumeral joint. Pain or difficulty performing freestyle can be tied to weakness or poor endurance in the muscles utilized during the corresponding phase. Adding scapular and shoulder strengthening into your program can prevent injury and improve stroke biomechanics.

Whether you are new to the sport, looking for pointers for your technique, or addressing shoulder weakness, the staff at Lakeshore Sport & Fitness is here for you.  LSF professional swim instructors can be reached at:  LPAquatics@lakeshoreSF.com.  Appointments with Lakeshore Physical Therapy to address shoulder pain can be made here:  www.lakeshore-pt.com.

Wine & Paint Night – “So Much Fun! What’s Next?” – Yoga with a DJ!
LSF Members and Guests had a blast at our Wine & Paint Night. Laughs were shared by all as beautifully unique works of art were painted by hand. Thank you to all those that attended! Wondering what’s next at LSF? December 5th will be a yoga event on the basketball court featuring a DJ.  Contact ICEvent@LakeshoreSF.com to find out about this event and more. We’re happy to help you book your next event – fun or work related – and help create more fun experiences like this one!

30 Day of Gratitude – Explore a Theme of Thankfulness this November
This November our entire yoga department will join forces to help you develop a practice of gratitude on and off your mat. Each class all month you will be provided the opportunity to write down one specific thing you are grateful for on a small card that is personal and powerful to you. You can keep this card at the top of your mat (or hidden underneath – no one else needs to know what it says) so that it becomes part of your intention in your yoga practice, fills your moving meditation with a new sense of purpose, and keeps you grounded in gratitude and contentment. By the end of the month you will have a whole collection of gratitude cards to reflect upon and remind yourself just how much you have to be thankful for in life.
