Physical Therapy Connections truly offers 5 star service and care!" S.A.

"I have seen Stephanie for two separate issues over the past 4 years and met my goals within the predicted visits needed. My treatments fit well into my daily life and made a great impact on my pain as well as increasing my strength and flexibility." - Heather

“Michael Coffee was fantastic. He found the areas of need and worked on them. Definitely not a cookie cutter massage.” – Barb

"My visit was great and it really helped me with my lower back. The staff was helpful." -Travis

“My first visit to Physical Therapy Connections, I limped in on a walker. After only 10 session with my coach/therapist, Max Madrid, I was walking normally.  Max is a great motivation and very professional.” – Jon

A Stronger Spine

Prevention Tips

Poor posture, especially in a sitting position, can cause bone and joint issues over time. If your job is sedentary it is important to:

  • Move your position or get up every 20 minutes. 
  • Adjust the height of your desk chair and computer to minimize strain on your neck and lower back. (Come to our office for an evaluation and we will identify the most appropriate height for you).
  • Invest in footwear to reduce stress on the lower back.
  • We recommend getting a desk that can adjust from sitting to standing. Also if you have a smart watch or timer, set it to go off every 20 minutes so that you are reminded to move.

Call our office without delay if you are at risk of developing DDD. If you, or someone you know, has been diagnosed with DDD, a physical therapy program, combined with traditional medicine, is critical for recovery.

Physical therapy interventions include:

  • Strengthening
  • Postural retraining
  • Ergonomic intervention
  • manual therap or trigger point work if necessary

Physical therapy will improve blood circulation to the affected region and reduce pain by facilitating the release of endorphin (pain relief chemicals naturally produced by the body). The long-term goal is to reestablish range of motion over time and assist in recovery. Call us today to learn more about what we can do for you 719-565-6678.

Everything You Need to Know about Degenerative Disc Disease

Degenerative disc disease, despite the name, is not a disease but a deterioration of the discs of the spine. It occurs over a period of time, resulting in neck or back pain and other musculoskeletal and neurological symptoms. It is common in adults in their thirties.

Types of degenerative disc disease

  1. Cervical: affects the neck and is referred to as cervical degenerative disc disease
  2. Lumbar: affects the lower back and is called lumbar degenerative disc disease

The cervical and lumbar regions of the spine are susceptible to damage due to increased movement capabilities. Constant motion over time results in the wear and tear of the discs.

Signs and Symptoms of DDD

Most patients report one or more of the following symptoms.

  • Pain is triggered by an activity
  • Pain flares up periodically and then settles to a low-grade pain/discomfort
  • Sitting or standing for long periods of time worsen the pain
  • Activities such as walking may alleviate the pain
  • Relief upon changing body position
  • Muscle spasms
  • Tingling sensations in the extremities

Any activity that triggers pain in the neck or lower back should be ceased immediately. If there is no relief with rest, consult with a physical therapist. Early intervention could save you from further damage to the disc, muscles and ligaments.
