PAIN GUIDELINES

First off it has to be said, if you have a NEW INJURY that is causing pain and is not getting better with any techniques you are doing at home please see a rehab specialist as soon as possible to get it assessed. ๐˜Ž๐˜ณ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜ฅ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜จ ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ณ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ๐˜จ๐˜ฉ ๐˜ฑ๐˜ข๐˜ช๐˜ฏ ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ ๐˜ธ๐˜ฐ๐˜ณ๐˜ฌ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ๐˜ต๐˜ด ๐˜ข๐˜ฏ๐˜ฅ ๐˜ฅ๐˜ข๐˜ช๐˜ญ๐˜บ ๐˜ข๐˜ค๐˜ต๐˜ช๐˜ท๐˜ช๐˜ต๐˜ช๐˜ฆ๐˜ด ๐˜ช๐˜ด ๐˜ฏ๐˜ฐ๐˜ต ๐˜ฏ๐˜ฐ๐˜ณ๐˜ฎ๐˜ข๐˜ญ. ๐˜ˆ๐˜ญ๐˜ด๐˜ฐ ๐˜ช๐˜ง ๐˜บ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ ๐˜ด๐˜ต๐˜ข๐˜ณ๐˜ต ๐˜ต๐˜ฐ ๐˜ฏ๐˜ฐ๐˜ต๐˜ช๐˜ค๐˜ฆ ๐˜ข ๐˜ฅ๐˜ฆ๐˜ค๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ๐˜ข๐˜ด๐˜ฆ ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ ๐˜ณ๐˜ข๐˜ฏ๐˜จ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ฐ๐˜ง ๐˜ฎ๐˜ฐ๐˜ต๐˜ช๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏ ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ ๐˜ข ๐˜ซ๐˜ฐ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜ต ๐˜ฅ๐˜ถ๐˜ณ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜จ ๐˜ข ๐˜ธ๐˜ฐ๐˜ณ๐˜ฌ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ๐˜ต ๐˜ฐ๐˜ณ ๐˜ฅ๐˜ข๐˜ช๐˜ญ๐˜บ ๐˜ข๐˜ค๐˜ต๐˜ช๐˜ท๐˜ช๐˜ต๐˜บ ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ข๐˜ต ๐˜ช๐˜ด ๐˜ฏ๐˜ฐ๐˜ต ๐˜จ๐˜ฆ๐˜ต๐˜ต๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜จ ๐˜ฃ๐˜ฆ๐˜ต๐˜ต๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ, ๐˜ฑ๐˜ญ๐˜ฆ๐˜ข๐˜ด๐˜ฆ ๐˜ต๐˜ข๐˜ฌ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ฏ๐˜ฐ๐˜ต๐˜ฆ. ๐˜—๐˜ข๐˜ช๐˜ฏ ๐˜ช๐˜ด ๐˜ถ๐˜ด๐˜ถ๐˜ข๐˜ญ๐˜ญ๐˜บ ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ญ๐˜ข๐˜ด๐˜ต ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜จ ๐˜ต๐˜ฐ ๐˜ค๐˜ฐ๐˜ฎ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏ. We can save a lot of aches and pains and  speed up the rehab process if these things are accessed early and not looked at until you are in unrelenting pain.
 
Now for this post we are talking the rehab process of an injury AFTER it has been accessed and serious red flags have been ruled out. Meaning we have a plan and are on our way to healing the injured tissue. So the questions become in this process: ๐˜š๐˜ฉ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ๐˜ญ๐˜ฅ ๐˜ ๐˜ข๐˜ท๐˜ฐ๐˜ช๐˜ฅ ๐˜ข๐˜ญ๐˜ญ ๐˜ฎ๐˜ฐ๐˜ท๐˜ฆ๐˜ฎ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฏ๐˜ต๐˜ด ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ข๐˜ต ๐˜ข๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ฑ๐˜ข๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜ง๐˜ถ๐˜ญ? ๐˜ž๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฏ ๐˜ด๐˜ฉ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ๐˜ญ๐˜ฅ ๐˜ ๐˜ด๐˜ต๐˜ฐ๐˜ฑ ๐˜ฅ๐˜ฐ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜จ ๐˜ข๐˜ฏ ๐˜ข๐˜ค๐˜ต๐˜ช๐˜ท๐˜ช๐˜ต๐˜บ ๐˜ช๐˜ง ๐˜ช๐˜ต ๐˜ช๐˜ด ๐˜ฑ๐˜ข๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜ง๐˜ถ๐˜ญ? ๐˜“๐˜ฆ๐˜ต ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ด๐˜ต๐˜ฐ๐˜ฑ๐˜ญ๐˜ช๐˜จ๐˜ฉ๐˜ต ๐˜ด๐˜บ๐˜ด๐˜ต๐˜ฆ๐˜ฎ ๐˜ฃ๐˜ฆ ๐˜บ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ๐˜ณ ๐˜จ๐˜ถ๐˜ช๐˜ฅ๐˜ฆ. โฃ

Injury and Rehab Confusion

Picture1

There are a lot of misconceptions and confusion that come with rehab and recovering from an injury. Some common questions we have pop up or know people are wondering are: why am I having to do exercises at home? Canโ€™t you just โ€œfixโ€ me with your treatments at your office?  Why I am doing these low-grade rehab exercises at the beginning? Why am I continuing to come and progress with exercises if I am out of pain? These are just to name a few, and we will try to answer each as best we can.

Why We Treat Everyone Like an Athlete โ€“ Patient Perception

ivan-pergasi-7IB2ifwA21Y-unsplash

There are two things behind this idea. One that everyone should be treated with the same presence, time, listening, care and attention to detail as an athlete is in todayโ€™s culture of rehab. Two that care should be dictated toward getting the patient back to moving better and finding or encouraging a movement practice they love. Just like when we are doing a โ€œreturn to playโ€ strategy with an injured athlete.

Clinic Insights from our Intern Riley

Christmas-Photo

My name is Riley Dreher and I was blessed with the opportunity to complete 500 total hours of shadowing at ICT Muscle and Joint Clinic through Wichita State University.

I have been accepted into Cleveland Chiropractic College in Overland Park, Kansas where I will begin attending school next January.

WHY WE TREAT EVERYONE LIKE AN ATHLETE: CLINICIAN APPROACH

Blog-pi_20200214-213456_1
The ICTMJC Mindset

If you knew Patrick Mahomes was going to come to the presentation you were doing, how much more would you prepare, wanting to give the best presentation of your life? Maybe you could care less, but you get the point. The majority of people would automatically prepare like an over-caffeinated-mad-man to make sure the presentation was top notch. But what if we treated everyone like that? What if we were fully present and brought our โ€œAโ€ game with everybody? What if we went that extra mile no matter who was in front of us? This is the mindset we at ICT Muscle & Joint want to have. Nobody is more important than anyone else. Everybody deserves that world-class-athlete-treatment.

Bad Posture: Does it Lead to Pain?

IMG_4696-2

In today's technology age, most people spend a lot of time sitting at desk looking at a computer, or looking down at their phone. There is nothing wrong with this posture. I'll say it again, THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH THIS POSTURE. I wrote this while sitting in that position. However, because of this position and how gravity works, our postural muscles work as our anti-gravity muscles. Without them, we would technically face-plant on our computers and phones ????โ€โ™‚๏ธ.
