Cleaning can take a lot out of you.
Wiping off countertops, sweeping the floor, vacuuming, and scrubbing floors - these can be intense activities!
Many of my patients often abandon the thought of a clean house because it’s too painful for them to achieve that sparkle and shine without having pain for days.
When patients share that they are unable to do many day-to-day tasks like cleaning because of their pain, I make sure to include these movements in their physical therapy plan.
I’m a problem solver so we get to the root cause of the problem and fix it in therapy so they have less pain, better mobility, increased strength, can get back to what they need to do (like cleaning), AND get back to what they want to do so they can have more fun!
One of the tips I teach my patients with back pain is a pain-free position that is safe for their back AND allows them to get chores done without aggravating their symptoms.

It is a fact that COVID-19 has wreaked more havoc on those with compromised health or a longer list of comorbidities such as obesity, diabetes, hypertension, pulmonary conditions, and cardiac conditions. It’s not to say that COVID-19 has not impacted those without underlying health conditions, it’s just that the statistics indicate it has been more detrimental to those with chronic health issues.
When the body is not physically functioning at its best, it doesn’t feel as good. Joints feel stiff and achy. Muscles feel tight and sore.
About 3 months after my first pregnancy, I started coughing. This turned into a nasty sinus infection and I lost my voice. My primary care physician refused to prescribe me antibiotics because it was a virus.
A couple of months later, the same thing happened. Again, the claim was a virus and no antibiotics were prescribed.
This scenario happened again and finally I said to my physician, “Why does this keep happening? I’ve been to you three times in the past 6 months yet for the past 5 years I only saw you for my annual physical. Why do I keep getting sick?”
Her answer was “You have a kid in daycare. You have bad luck.” Again, no antibiotics were prescribed.
After that appointment, I seemed to get sick less yet I would still cough and lose my voice. It was very annoying because my patients thought I was sick when I wasn’t.
During my second pregnancy, I got really sick - I missed a week of work which if anyone knows me, I NEVER miss work. I never...
