Reddy-Care Expertise Highlighted Once Again In The New York Times
Published: 2009-9-01
The August 25th edition of The New York Times in its ongoing Well Blog featured a story entitled An Easy Fix for Tennis Elbow The article discussed the range of traditional treatments for tennis elbow but also a more recent focus on the success of eccentric exercise The August 27th Times featured valuable input and suggestions on the subject from Allen Eshmoili PT MPT OCS CSCS of Reddy-Care I have long touted the benefits of eccentric exercise to treat tendonitis and I am glad to see this study being done Tim Tyler and the group at NISMAT did a great job with this study in creating an effective and creative way to treat Tennis Elbow One thing people with chronic tennis elbow should do is get checked out by a physical therapist to see if there are any underlying causes to the tennis elbow such as biomechanical faults in the shoulder or shoulder blade At Reddy-Care Physical Therapy in Great Neck we do a biomechanical assessment to root out the actual cause of the problem and not just treat the symptoms This leads to lasting relief from pain and dysfunction rather than just a temporary fix to the symptoms By the way you don t have to be a tennis player to get tennis elbow I have treated many sedentary hairdressers teachers and construction workers with tennis elbow as well
Reddy-Care Insight- The New York Times
Published: 2009-8-26
The Well Blog in the August 19th edition of THE NEW YORK TIMES featured a story focusing on methods for healing hamstring and other injuries An insightful follow-up comment provided by Allen Eshmoili PT OCS of Reddy-Care was featured in the TIMES Study after study shows that eccentric muscle strengthening as mentioned in the article is very effective in healing all sorts of tendinitis from tennis elbow and rotator cuff to achilles tendon As a Physical Therapist at Reddy-Care Physical Therapy in Great Neck NY we use a combination of manual therapy treatments that work well together to speed up recovery Besides the traditional stretch and strengthen routine we use a technique called Strain-Counterstrain which helps facilitate healing by relaxing injured and spasmed muscles in 90 seconds The technique is pain free and usually allows the person to get out of the pain allowing the range of motion to be restored before beginning the strengthening phase Check it out on You Tube It s very cool By the way tendonitis is a misnomer Studies show that there really is no inflammatory process in the tissue itis but there is degeneration therefore the term should be tendinosis As a matter of fact stubborn chronic cases are best reated with surgical removal of the degenerated tissue after traditional rehab has failed So it s best to seek a physical therapist as soon as symptoms appear rather than wait-and-see
