Knee pain-am I getting better? @ComstockPT #kneepain

I am happy to report my knee is about 80% better. I still have pain with a full squat, or fully kneeling, but have a lot less pain in sitting, with stairs and other activities that were painful.

What caused my pain? I haven’t had any injury to the right knee, in fact I have injured my left knee. I tend to use my right leg as my strong leg, and as a result I overuse my right hamstrings. This has caused the hamstrings and the IT band to become short and tight, eventually straining both my right hip muscles, right my knee and compressing the sciatic nerve.

What’s helped? Physical Therapy with Joyce Mills MPT OCS for strengthening the medial quad, stretching the hamstrings, IT band and calf muscles and deep massage with an instrument used by the therapist to help the muscles relax.

Come to @ComstockPT to get your #musclesinsync and feel better!

Good tips for staying safe in the heat!It's supposed to get hotter this weekend all over the state — high 90s and triple digits in some places. Pay attention to your local forecast. Please know the difference between heat exhaustion and heat stroke. This may save someone's life. Remember to stay hydrated. Don't keep your pets or children in vehicles due to rising temperatures. If you see this happening, call local authorities for help. Hotter weather also increases the risk for wildfires.

Keep in mind you may need to adjust your plans based on the latest health and safety guidelines from the CDC and local officials. Cooling shelters, if any are open in your area, may need to take your temperature or ask questions about how you are feeling. If you have a local mall open, air conditioning might be your friend. If at a mall or cooling center, wear a mask, wash your hands with soap or use hand sanitizer and stay at least six feet apart.
