Your chiropractor will use their hands or small instruments to apply a quick, controlled force (amount of pressure) to a joint or they will gently stretch your joints beyond their normal range of motion. This helps align the vertebrae in your spine if they were slightly off-center and release gases trapped within your joints.

The longer we sit (especially without moving around) the tighter our muscles become. This is why a proper sitting posture is necessary to minimise stress and strain that we put on our spine while in this position.
Sleeping on your back allows your spine to stay in a neutral relaxed position. If you do have a large curve in your lower back, suffer from back pain or just feel comfortable sleeping in this position, place a pillow underneath your knees.
This structural change that occurs in your spine is commonly caused by bad posture and excessive sitting, leading to joint stiffness and muscle tightness as well as muscular weakness in certain areas.
PRT-i will come to you! PRT-i provides instruction in positional release therapy for clinics, corporate, educational institutions and professional associations. Instruction is intended for health care professionals who treat patients seeking pain relief or performance enhancement, e.g., Athletic Trainer (AT), Physical Therapist (PT), Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT), Chiropractic Physician (DC), Occupational Therapist (OT), Osteopathic Physician (DO). We also will instruct pre-professional healthcare students who are enrolled in accredited educational programs.
Have you ever wondered how to go about starting a therapy practice as an AT? Well Dr. Timothy Speicher shares his experience and expertise, as well as his mistakes in opening a therapy practice from the ground up. Tips, tricks, and considerations are provided for the AT professional, including developing your professional niche, what time of reimbursement should your business plan be - fee-for-service or insurance billing. Most importantly, Dr. Speicher discusses how to structure your business for your long-term success.
All healthcare professionals can benefit from ART training. Professionals that gain the most from our seminars include those that regularly treat chronic pain or soft-tissue/neurofascial/neuromuscular disorders, as well as those in the occupational or sports medicine fields.ART seminars require an intermediate to expert understanding of musculoskeletal anatomy. We highly recommend that student attendees complete at least one semester of gross anatomy prior to attending a seminar.
Yes. ART offers discounted student pricing for enrolled students, as well as professionals that graduated within the previous twelve (12) months. To be eligible for student pricing, you must be enrolled in or have recently graduated from a college or university program designed to result in licensure as a DC, PT, OT, PTA, OTA, ATC, RN, MD, OD, physiotherapist, MT, or acupuncturist.
LinkedIn is your online resume that everyone can see. Get your cropped family photo off there, get a profile picture professionally done and take some time building your headline, qualifications and experience timeline. Ask some of your references and colleagues to write recommendations that you can share on your profile page.
No one wants to hear you ramble. When you are asked a question, whether it be in a phone interview or face to face, a hiring manager wants to hear a professional, precise response. The best way to do this is to follow the S.T.A.R. method when responding to any question. When you find out from your recruiter what the hiring manager or phone screener likes to ask, practice the answers before hand.
I see back pain every day in my sports, spine, and regenerative-medicine practice. I also see runners almost every day. However, rarely do the two overlap. Eighty percent of the general population will experience significant back pain at some point. There are numerous reasons runners experience less back pain than the general population, including:
Radicular pain from a nerve root causing burning or shooting pain down the leg can be due to either a protruding or ruptured (also known as herniated) intervertebral disc touching a nerve root or arthritis of the spine, the latter of which causes narrowing around one or more nerve roots which feed a part or parts of the leg(s) (10). This pain in the buttock/lateral hip and legs may also be accompanied by weakness, which occurs in a dermatomal distribution (meaning it occurs by areas of the skin supplied by a single spinal nerve). This gluteal/lateral hip pain traveling down the leg is often incorrectly attributed to piriformis syndrome (the existence of which is debated among the medical community and it is exceedingly rare, if it exists at all) or a muscle pull.
While there are myriad risk factors for low-back pain (including psychosocial factors such as depression and pending injury litigation), I would like to keep this section as simple as possible by stating that you should maintain a neutral spine posture as much as you can in all aspects of life and athletics. Here are a few examples of how and when to do so:
JJ had a five-year history of severe low-back pain at its worst with sitting. Prior to this, she would run for hours at a time, but as the back pain worsened she could not run more than 20 minutes before excruciating back pain caused her to stop. She had no radiating symptoms down her legs. There was no particular injury that preceded the pain. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the back showed a herniated and torn L4-L5 disc. (This is the disc between the fourth and fifth lumbar vertebrae near the bottom of the spine.) Physical therapy, manual manipulation, activity modifications, time, and over-the-counter medications had failed to resolve her pain.
Nate Bender: Throughout the winter of 2017 to 2018 and the spring of 2018, the low-level discomfort started becoming increasingly frequent. I decided to seek out more advanced medical help, starting with physical therapy. This made slow progress and I wanted to understand what was causing the pain once and for all, so I committed to the expense of seeing spine specialists. They ordered a bone scan which pinpointed some inflammation and degradation in my lumbar facet joints, specifically at the L3-L4, L4-L5, and L5-S1 levels. They followed this up with three facet corticosteroid injections at these levels in May, June, and July of 2018, respectively.
The spine is not able to bear more than 20 pounds of load without the assistance of our core/postural musculature. Core stability and strength is not just a fad but is required to protect the spine. Stuart McGill, PhD (in spine biomechanics) and Professor Emeritus at Waterloo University in Canada has measured the most effective exercises, now called the McGill Big Three, for creating core stability without increasing risk of injury. The three exercises are: 2b1af7f3a8
