Hi, I'm Dr. Molly with Your Goals Physical Therapy. Were you diagnosed with hip arthritis and you still wanna run? This is a great video for you. We're gonna talk about Luke and how Luke was given a diagnosis of hip arthritis, but his doctors told him that not only should he stop running now, but he was gonna need a hip replacement in the near future. And that is not happening as of right now. So we're gonna talk about the things that make hip arthritis happen. What makes it better? What makes it worse and how you have a lot more control than maybe the last doctor visit, let you believe. So let's get started. So Luke had been running his whole life. He was in his fifties. That was his thing. All runners we just like to run, everything else is just filler space.
So even though Luke liked to, he did go to the gym once in a while to lift weights and practice lunges and squats and things. He was running four to five days a week. And he'd been doing that for years. As an avid runner, he knew that he needed to keep up his overall physicality. So he was getting weekly massages, he was doing a lot of the things that he knew he needed to do, because of course he doesn't like to stretch, hence the massages. So he was doing a lot of the things that he absolutely thought he should be. He was still lifting weights. He was getting massages, but over time, his right hip really started to bother him. It wasn't just, you know, at the end of the run, in fact, he kept running because it would ache in the morning.
Hi, I'm Dr. Molly with Your Goals Physical Therapy. If you have just rolled or have ever rolled your ankle doing an aerobics class, like one of those fitness classes at the gym, this is a perfect video for you. In this video, I'm gonna talk about Martha and her journey after she rolled her ankle. We're gonna talk about why it is not as easy as it seems like it should be to recover from rolling your ankle and how to make sure you recover fully. That way you can get back to all the things that you love without that sense that your ankle is just not strong. So let's get into the story about Martha.
Martha did not actually like working out, not at all. She was completely against it. Until she got into her forties, when she realized that it was harder for her to lose weight and her knee pain was so bad that she knew she needed to do something to help herself out.
This was getting right past COVID. She wasn't really interested in going places, but she knew that she couldn't do it on her own. She knew that she needed help to stay motivated and to even know what to do. She found a small gym, so she felt much more comfortable in relation to COVID and just being around a bunch of people. In that small gym, they had aerobics classes and she was thinking that this was a great idea, because now she doesn't have to know how to work any of the equipment. She didn't have to feel self-conscious, there's other people there. So she thought that that would just be a very easy transition for her into this thing that she didn't really want to do anyway.
Hi, I'm Dr. Molly with Your Goals Physical Therapy. If sciatica is taking the joy out of your weekend cycling, this is the video for you. So I met Aaron about, I don't know, six to eight months ago, something to that effect. He had been suffering from sciatic pain for months. He had pain If he sat for too long, he was getting residual pain, even if he took too long of a walk. It was going from his butt all the way down his leg at some points and so he had been dealing with that for a long time. He was like, it was relatively minor and I could get into positions and it just went away. It was fine and it didn't interrupt me going for bike rides on the weekend. Which was his main thing. That's his main source of entertainment and how he hung out with friends, see Aaron would get on his bike and ride 30 or so miles.
Their goal would be to hit some bar that had a patio so they could hang out, drink, have lunch, and then they would ride back. That was basically their entire Saturday, him and his friends. And so that was something that he habitually did and he really, really enjoyed it. So his back pain bothering him at work, didn't really affect his bike riding. He sort of ignored it and put it on the back burner assumed it would get better eventually and just was ignoring it.
Hi, I'm Dr. Molly with Your Goals Physical Therapy. If your shoulder impingement is stopping you from kayaking, this is the right video for you in this video. I'm gonna talk about how my client, Penny overcame her shoulder impingement and got back to kayaking so much faster than she thought she would after months and months of dealing with doctor's offices and not feeling like she was getting anywhere and she didn't have to have surgery and she didn't need any medication to get there. So let's get started!
Kayaking. So Penny was telling me that she and her family just love outdoor adventures. So she's a mom with three boys and her husband loves, loves, loves to go camping and do all these outdoor recreational things. And so one weekend they put the kayaks on the car and they went down to one of the little lakes around here.
