Going to Physical Therapy

Recently I have encountered some elbow pain and it warranted a visit to see a Physical Therapist here in Portland, Oregon (Therapydia). Since I have been in the personal training industry for so long, it was just a matter of time when you start encountering some repetitive motion issues that come with this type of industry. Even though it has taken over 20 years for these issues to be present, it is always a good idea to seek professional advice before it turns into something major.After they did their assessment they realized that even though I am functionally strong there were a lot of mobility issues in my shoulder and mid/upper back areas that were creating discrepancies in my movement patterns. In addition, with the type of work I have been doing for so many years, the amount of stress that was placed on my wrists from picking up heavy objects (weights) creating a trickle effect that put a lot of stress on my joints; hence, my shoulder and elbow jointsI have been very pleased with my progress and my range of motion in my right shoulder has increased significantly. The key is that you actually need to go, but the bigger piece to the puzzle is that you must do the homework that is assigned. Going to PT is great, especially when they are stretching, massaging and moving you through movement patterns. But you need to do your homework, which is not bad! What I end up doing is either breaking it up throughout the day or just incorporate it into my existing workout.The Art of Personal Training by Kisar Dhillon107 SE Washington StreetSuite 137Portland, Oregon 97214503-953-0241
