New patient who was in a motor vehicle accident 12 years ago was never checked after his accident. He has extensive damage to his c-spine and upper t-spine. Chiropractic and Active Release will help him, but will take longer than usual because he has permanent damage to his spine.

Always get checked after an MVA. And, remember the 14 day rule. In order for your auto insurance company to cover any of your medical bills, you must get checked within 14 days of your accident.

Golfers! Many of you are experiencing physical limitations in your golf game, such as, the inability to fully rotate your hips or shoulders. Many of you can not perform a squat properly. Physical limitations negatively affect your game directly and only leads to more frustration. There is a physical screen, consisting of 16 tests, designed by the experts at the Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) that assesses your body's range of motion and overall function. The results are recorded and a treatment plan is designed specifically for you based on your test results. I am TPI certified and offer this screening in my office. Call 727-669-3900, and make an appointment to get screened.

In Part I of Repetitive Overuse Injuries In Musicians, we described the type of repetitive overuse injuries that occur in musicians. In this segment we will discuss the various treatment options to help alleviate pain and restore proper function. The idea is to detect the problematic area and focus treatment to that area in effort to rehabilitate damaged or overused tissue and regain efficient movement patterns.

Treatment is specific to several areas of the body that will aid in reduction of symptoms and correction of the problem. We will break up these regions and discuss them separately in order to explain in detail what we’re trying to achieve. The first area of treatment will focus on the muscles that are weak;  the gluteals (gluteus maximus, gluteus medius, gluteus minimus) and abdominal muscles. The second area of treatment will focus on the muscles that are tight; the hip flexors (rectus femoris and iliopsoas) and lumbar erector spinae. Remember, our goal is to achieve muscular balance. Balance is key to overcoming LCS.

The road to becoming an accomplished musician requires thousands of hours of practice, repetition and conditioning of muscles specific to the instrument played. It is common for musicians to exhibit an inability to relax while playing, especially when learning a new phrase or trill. The repetitive nature of playing an intricate part in a tensed manner, whether gripping the instrument too tight, striking a series of keys too hard or attempting to play a part faster can lead to repetitive overuse injuries.
