Why does my pain keep coming back? :(

WHY, WHY, WHY does my pain keep coming back? 

I go to my doctor and get pain medications yet the pain returns.  I go to a health care practitioner and feel somewhat better, get a standard protocol for certain exercises, or some other treatment, then my pain returns. 

I go to a MELT class (a self massage class using foam rollers and ball) and the pain returns.  (See this link)  http://www.nytimes.com/2015/01/02/arts/a-class-in-the-melt-method-of-body-work.html?src=me&module=Ribbon&version=origin&region=Header&action=click&contentCollection=Most%20Emailed&pgtype=article

I garden on my hands and knees, weeding for a few hours and get a headache that night AGAIN! 

Heel Pain

I have pain in my heel that comes on for no known reason, and get a cortisone shot, and still have pain.

I have wrist pain and can't fully bend my wrist forward and I have weak grip.

What is the problem?

Probably an old injury or a bad habit of movement.  What to do? 

To help the headache, strengthen the muscles which lift and support the shoulder blades;  that will take strain off the other shoulder blade muscles which connect to the head and cause the headache.

To help the foot pain, have your physical therapist stretch the heel bone away from the ankle bones to take pressure off the plantar fascia.

Wrist Pain

To help the wrist pain have your physical therapist give you a specific exercise to strengthen bending and twisting your wrist up and in.

In short, Comstock Physical Therapy is here to help you help yourself by diagnosing the exact problem and giving you the exact exercise program you need to fix your problem!

Comstock Physical Therapy will be open with TELEHEALTH sessions from 3-23-2020 through 3-27-2020 due the Covid19 concerns.

Our physical location will be closed for hands-on patient treatment due to social distancing requirements.

We will be calling all of our patients to see if they would like to schedule with one of the therapists for TELEHEALTH. Our understanding at this point as that most insurances will pay for a telehealth visit, with the same conditions (co-pay, etc) as if the patient is in office.

If you have an immediate need, please call our office at 360-455-8014, and leave a message. We will be monitoring phone messages and addressing them as the develop.

Thank you, Linnea Comstock PT DPT, Owner Comstock
