The first blog/video in this series was all about vertigo, particularly “inner ear vertigo” or BPPV (Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo).
Click this link if you want to see the first part: https://www.gordonphysicaltherapy.com/what-causes-vertigo-all-about-bppv/
In this second part, I’m going to share some specific information about how we help our clients fix BPPV quickly in the clinic by following a 3-step approach.
Before I give you those details, recall that BPPV has some very telling symptoms: people tend to have sudden and often severe episodes of vertigo following certain head movements or position changes (like tipping the head back, bending forward, getting in and out of bed, and rolling over in bed).
If this sounds like you or a loved one, the information below should be very helpful!read more
In previous blog posts and videos, I’ve talked a lot about how to prepare for Total Knee Replacement (TKR) surgery (aka Total Knee Arthroplasty or TKA).
This includes information on improving your knee strength and flexibility prior to surgery to improve the chances of a successful outcome, as well as exercises and tips that will help you immediately after surgery.
But what about those people who’ve had surgery, did their rehab, and are still struggling with pain and tightness in their knees?read more
Not too long ago, I published a blog that was a tribute to my Dad, who recently retired from his full-time work at the clinic. If you had a chance to read about the 4 biggest things I’ve learned while working with my Dad, you may have noticed that I never mentioned anything about his “therapy skills”. Instead, I talked about how he taught me the importance of treating patients like family, going the extra mile, and showing people how much you care (before showing them how much you know…).
Does this mean that my Dad wasn’t a skilled therapist, or that he didn’t pass on some valuable treatment techniques? Not at all. It just means that, in my opinion, the other things he taught me have been more valuable to my growth as a PT than any of the PT skills he taught me. Does that make sense?read more
Recently, I published an article in the newspaper as a tribut to my Dad, highlighting 4 key lessons he’s taught me over the last 11 years.
This article was inspired by my Dad’s recent retirment from the clinic in the fall of 2018. I had such a warm response to this article that I wanted to share it in it’s complete text here on the blog page.
Below is the full text of the article. I hope you enjoy it!read more
Just in case you couldn’t make it to this live event at the clinic, I recorded the entire workshop!
I start things off by talking about the 4 structures that can cause neck pain and headaches…
And then we move on to the top 3 reasons these structures get aggravated.
After that, I discuss successful treatment options (for lasting pain relief).
In addition, there are quite a few good questions and stories from the audience. So if you’re suffering from neck pain, with or without headaches, the information in the video should really help!read more
