Plantar Fasciitis

According to the Cleveland Clinic, two million patients get treatment for plantar fasciitis annually. It typically causes a stabbing pain in the bottom of a foot near the heel.

It strikes at the most unexpected moment, causing excruciating and stabbing pain in the back, often radiating all the way down to the foot.

It has been almost two years since the coronavirus pandemic began. In February 2020, none of us thought it would last that long.

Most patients are not sure what would be better – surgery or less invasive methods, such as rehabilitation.

Workplace Injuries – Shoulder

Workplace Injuries – Shoulder

We don’t realize it, but our shoulders work almost constantly. They are involved in every activity we perform. And because we use them constantly, every minute of the day, shoulder injuries are extremely troublesome. If we suffer it at work, the situation becomes even more complicated, because very often such injury makes our work difficult or even impossible to perform.

Perioperative Rehabilitation

Perioperative Rehabilitation

Nobody looks forward to surgery, but when pain or limitations resulting from illness or injury prevent us from performing our daily tasks, it may be the only option. Although it is scary, in most cases surgery can help us return to the activity level we enjoyed prior to the injury. The key to getting back in shape is proper rehabilitation, both before and after the surgery.
