Recovering From Injuries & Preventing Reoccurrence LEAVE YOUR PAIN BEHIND YOU!

Do you have pesky pain you’re trying to kick? We understand that many people simply don’t have the time to keep coming back to physical therapy. Maybe you’re in school, you have a full-time job, you’re chasing after young children or grandchildren, or you’re a committed athlete who simply can’t be out of the game for that long. We get it – you’re busy! When you come in for an injury or pain relief, you want your physical therapy treatments to be a “one and done” deal. At Advanced PT, we want the same for you! Give us a call today to hear more about our injury prevention services, and how we can make sure your treatment with us will nip your pain in the bud once and for all. HOW CAN I PREVENT AN INJURY? Advanced PT offers injury prevention screening to help determine your likelihood of experiencing an injury in the near future. Your body tells you in subtle ways what it can and cannot do – and we’re here to listen. How do we do this? First and

foremost, we will analyze how your body bends, twists, and moves altogether. This can include watching how you squat and jump, testing your flexibility, and noting your range of motion. During an injury prevention screening, we are on the lookout for abnormalities, whether it be in wobbly landing positions, weak limbs, low range of motion, or overall issues with posture and technique. We will also take note of any painful areas and focus closely on those to get to the root of the problem. After your initial screening, your physical therapist will come up with a plan to help significantly lower your risk of future injury. This may include manual therapy, technique and form assistance, therapeutic exercise, or any of our additional services that your physical therapist sees fit. They may also send you home with some helpful tips and exercises that you can do on your own to help prevent your risk of future injury.

HOWDO I PREVENT AN INJURY?

Advanced PT offers injury prevention screening to help determine your likelihood of experiencing an injury in the near future. Your body tells you in subtle ways what it can and cannot do – and we’re here to listen. How do we do this? First and foremost, we will analyze how your body bends, twists, and moves altogether. This can include watching how you squat and jump, testing your flexibility, and noting your range of motion. During an injury prevention screening, we are on the lookout for abnormalities, whether it be in wobbly landing positions, weak limbs, low range of motion, or overall issues with posture and technique. We will also take note of any painful areas and focus closely on those to get to the root of the problem. After your initial screening, your physical therapist will come up with a plan to help significantly lower your risk of future injury. This may include manual therapy, technique and form assistance, therapeutic exercise, or any of our additional services that your physical therapist sees fit. They may also send you home with some helpful tips and exercises that you can do on your own to help prevent your risk of future injury. Some common tips for preventing injuries at home are: • STRETCHING YOUR CALVES. This is something that you should do before and after every workout. When your calves become tight, the tissues of your fascia can pull and tear, causing injury. Stretching your calves can prevent muscles from stiffening, thus decreasing any painful risks. • MASSAGING YOUR FEET. If you think about it, our feet get quite the workout every single day – they literally hold us up! This can inevitably cause discomfort, especially if we are on our feet more than planned, or we complete a new, extensive workout that we are not used to. A simple remedy is to massage the soles of your feet with a tennis ball. If you are experiencing pain, you can also massage themwith a frozen water bottle, which can relieve swelling.

• EXERCISING YOUR TOES . Toes may be a part of the body that you don’t think about a whole lot but working out your toes can actually have a lot of positive effects. By simply doing daily toe scrunching exercises, you can strengthen your arches and prevent painful conditions, such as plantar fasciitis. • STRENGTHENING YOUR BACK (and other commonly used body parts). Did you know that back pain is the most globally reported source of pain? There’s a reason! Our backs do a lot of work throughout the day, and it is a long and tender part of everyone’s body. You can strengthen your back, stomach, and thighs by doing simple exercises, such as partial crunches and wall sits. These are all highly used parts of our body and strengthening them will both make it easier on your daily life and help prevent your risk of injury to them in the future! A study titled “Prevention of Sports Injuries: Systematic Review of Randomized Controlled Trials” from the Archives of Internal Medicine also stated that the prevention of sports-related injuries was highly associated with the use of: • Insoles • External joint supports • Multi-intervention training programs If you are an athlete and you feel your fitness regimen may be putting you at risk or wearing you down, these proven aids can help you significantly decrease your probability toward harmful and painful injuries. If you’ve suffered from pain and injury in the past, and you want to figure out how to stop them once and for all, schedule a consultation with one of our physical therapists today. We’d be happy to meet with you and create a plan for better health! Sources: https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jamainternalmedicine/fullarticle/769864?resultClick=1

Health Care Heroes Did you see our very own Jerry Pomeroy, PT is a Health Care Hero? Here’s the write up in theWichita Business Journal: If you’ve had physical therapy in Harvey County, you likely know Jerry Pomeroy. As a physical therapist for 38 years and CEO of Advanced Physical erapy of Newton, Pomeroy specializes in advanced manual techniques.

“I try to fully engage with each of my patients and do the best job I can with each treatment,” he says. “His patients always call requesting to be seen by him due to him being known through the Harvey County community,” says Jacie Benson, vice president of administration. “He is dedicated to his patients, going the extra mile by working late nights or through his lunch hour.” Pomeroy is equally dedicated to his employees. “Jerry makes sure everyone is well taken care of fairly and that we don’t forget to laugh and have fun,” Benson says. “He makes coming to work enjoyable by his presence and energy.” According to Pomeroy, his responsibilities are changing as his clinics grow. “I now do administration half a day and patient care the other half,” he says. “I now focus on more involved physical therapies with specialized needs, like babies with torticollis and spinal issues.” On July 31, Pomeroy will retire from physical therapy to focus on the CEO side of his business.

“Jerry deserves to be recognized because he has been practicing for more than 30 years and has put the blood, sweat and tears into his clinic,” Benson says. “He should be recognized for all the people in the community he has helped, not only physically, but mentally. What sets our clinic apart from others is because of how Jerry set the tone of our clinics from the beginning. ere is a high, upbeat, positive energy that radiates to the patients. He has created a family at our clinic. He is always doing something good for the community and he deserves a pat on the back for that.” In addition to his clinics, Pomeroy is involved in the community through his church and the 4-H program. “Everyone should be involved in their community,” he says. “is way, we rely less on government and more on each other.” “An outstanding physical therapist is someone who doesn’t just help their patients physically, but mentally, too,” Benson says. “An outstanding PT boosts the patient’s spirit; becomes their friend; becomes the rst person they think of when they are in pain; and is someone who is an expert in their eld. Jerry exceeds that every day.” -Julie Conner

“I have been so pleased with the results!” Before therapy, I had severe sciatica nerve pain. It affected my daily tasks on the farm and made it difficult towalk or stand. Since therapy, the therapy sessions have relieved my sciatica pain and have helped me with limbering up my joints and making it easier to get around. I have been so very pleased with the results!” -J.H. Before therapy, I had a strained/torn hamstring. I was in an extreme amount of pain and had a lot of difficulty walking. Since therapy, I am able to touch the floor with my hands, and I’m completely pain-free. Thank you to everyone at Advanced Physical Therapy!” -J.E. “I’m absolutely back to functioning normally!” Before therapy, I could barely turn my head. I had pain frommy neck through my shoulder and elbow down to my fingers. I had a hard time driving and sleeping.
