Your Aches and Pains are Trying to Tell You Something.
Are you listening?
You know the feeling when you get up in the morning, everything aches, feels stiff, and sometimes can down right hurt? Your body is made to move. When it doesn’t move on a consistent basis, it starts to break down and lets you know in the form of aches and pains. Your body relies on a fine-tuned balancing act of proper posture, strength, coordination, chemical levels, blood pressure, and more. If any one of these factors is effected, then something is bound to happen. Poor health, injury, an inactive lifestyle, and poor nutrition are often to blame for the constant nagging aches or pains you may be experiencing. Why do you ache in the morning? If an area of your body, such as your back, is overworked, tissues get irritated in the day and build up a chronic layer of inflammation. This may be subtle enough where you don’t notice it too much at the end of the day. However, overnight the inflammation thickens and makes your tissues inelastic, while also irritating the affected area further. The result is aching stiff joints or muscles in the morning, until you get moving. Then the inflammation becomes more liquid like, allowing the tissues to move better, thus hurting less.
If your cycle of pain continues to happen, severe problems can happen down the road. Therefore, it is important to address your constant aches and pains, before they become severe. What to do? If you catch a problem early, it requires less intervention later on. That is why you should talk to our physical therapists at Ramsey Rehab. We have years of medical training, specifically in muscle and joint evaluation, and can pinpoint why you are having your aches and pains. Through listening to you and examining your problem, we put together a comprehensive treatment plan to get your body moving pain free. If you find yourself dealing with constant aches and pains, don’t wait it out another minute. Call us today to talk with one of our experts. Feeling Stiff and Achy? Here’s why…
Ramsey Rehab Physical Therapy celebrates 20 years
Ed Ramsey is celebrating the 20 year mark for his business and shed some light on how the field has grown, and why he believes more people are choosing PT. “Of all of the rehabilitations out there, so anything you could do for your back, pain specialist surgery, gym, etc. -- physical therapy is the cheapest option,” said Ed Ramsey. “It is effective, we have evidence to show that it works but it is also the least
costly alternative.” During a normal course of rehab at Ramsey Rehab they start with assessment of pain level, and work to lower that pain level, said Ramsey. Next comes flexibility and improving the ability to have full movement in the problem area without pain. Lastly, comes strengthening, conditioning, and endurance.

“When I first came to Ramsey Rehab, I was unable to use my right shoulder for basic activities of daily living. With the constant help of Gina, Tia, Laura, Lisa and Kat, I am now pain free and so much happier. I was hesitant to start physical therapy and now I can say it was the best thing I did! They allowed me to get back to doing the things I love – pain free! They are the nicest people and truly want to see their patients succeed and get better! Thank you so much to the staff at Ramsey Rehab! You are life changers!” - Melissa F. I am now pain free and so much happier!
