APAT: Helping Aches and Pains

The Advance Bulletin The Newsletter About Your Health And Caring For Your Body

Staff Spotlight: Julie Jorgensen Yes, Julie is the face you see when you come in to our clinic. She is the voice you hear on the phone when you call to make your appointment. Julie has been with us since day one of opening our business. Julie is the kind of person who would do anything, for anyone. Our patients come in to give her cards, thank you notes, flowers, and little decorations that you can see adorning our front desk from over the years. (Most are in the back because you wouldn’t see the desk if we put them all out) But most of all Julie has been an integral part of our growing family here at Advance as well as, our best first impression of what we represent and believe in as a health “care” company. I emphasize care because we really do care about helping as many people as we can and Julie is the embodiment of that mission. So next time you stop in or need physical therapy again please say hello to Julie and thank her for all of the hard work she does that you can see, and also all the behind-the-scenes hard work that you do not see. We all can’t wait to see what the next chapter has in store for our small clinic as well as the growth of Julie’s important role in how we help people get back to doing the things they love most.

How To Not Let Aches & Pains Hold You Back! 4 Ways To Beat The Pain! The Advance Bulletin The Newsletter About Your Health And Caring For Your Body

Everyone develops aches and pains from time to time. After a long day out in the sun, or after an afternoon of trying to keep up with household chores, sometimes the tasks that we expect of our bodies can get the best of us. Whether it is a lingering ache in your back, feet that feel swollen and tired after a long day in your shoes, or a crick in your neck that just won’t go away, dealing with aches and pains can really take a toll on your overall feeling of wellbeing. If you stopped and asked around, you’d be amazed to see how many people are struggling with aches and pains, just like you. What may surprise you even more is how many people are coping with those pains without doing anything productive about it. How to Deal with Aches and Pains Pain medications can reduce the severity of aches and pains for a little while, but they don’t do anything to resolve the issue. There are things that you can do at home that can alleviate your aches and pains, helping to reduce the severity of your discomfort while also reducing the likelihood that the pain will return. Don’t just complain about those aches and pains. Start doing something about them. Here is a quick rundown of things that you can do at home that can reduce your daily pain: 1.Usehotandcoldtherapyappropriatelytoreduce inflammation. After a good workout or a day of doing chores out in the yard, your muscles will likely feel sore. Apply ice directly to the area that hurts on and off for 20minutes at a time during the

first 24-72 hours after the pain develops. After that, consider soaking in hot water, such as taking a warm bath, to further soothe your muscles. 2. Don’t underestimate the power of resting! Your body relies on sleep just as much as your brain. You need to get plenty of sleep to keep your stress level at a minimum—and that includes your physical stress level. Aim to sleep between 7-9 hours every night. The more activity you engage in, the more sleep you need. 3. Keep your body in good shape with regular exercise. It may seem counterintuititive to cut down on pain by movingmore, but exercise is a really good way to reduce aches and pains. Whenyouexerciseeveryday,youareabletotrainyourmuscles for more movement, and thereby reduce aches and pains. Keepingactive,stayingrested,andbeingsmartwithhotandcold therapy create a trifecta for healthy management of aches and pains, but they aren’t going to solve the bigger problems. When aches and pains start to grow severe, or chronic, then it is time to reach out to a professional for support. Physical therapy is the best way to reduce aches and pains because it takes into account a combination of active and passive strategies to help tackle the cause of your pain.



There are a lot of different reasons as to why you may start feeling aches and pains. Muscle pain will occur whenever your muscles start to grow. To build more muscle mass, your muscles have to stretch, and lactic acid can pour into the lining of your muscles to cause a burning sensation. More movement will push that acid out, helping you to experience relief, and in time your muscles will develop increased elasticity, and the burning won’t be so severe. Build-up of tension fromstress oroveruse,andmusclepainfrompoorposturecan alsocontribute to regularpain.Aphysical therapist can take a comprehensive assessment to help determine what may be the primary cause behind your aches and pains. Working with a physical therapist can help you develop a new approach to managing your aches andpains.Yourphysical therapyprogramwill likely take intoaccountstrategies likehydrotherapy,deep tissue massage, guided stretching and targeted movements to help you experience ongoing relief from regular discomfort.

Volunteering: As a senior at UDHS we did senior projects–volunteering and then doing a presentation of what we did and why. I volunteered on a dementia floor at a nursing home.These residents touched my heart so deeply. Most residents where unsure of their name at times, but they still loved music, laughing, and dancing. Although there memories faded, they still came through every now and again! I had two women I would just spend my time dancing with them to Fly Me To The Moon by Frank Sinatra- I think of all of those residents often. My greatest skill: I am like the Ray Donovan of moms... I’m a fixer. I always have whatyour looking for,always lovehavingyouover,andcanhelpyou inanysituation and give my advice! I really pride myself in being there for my family and friends!
