Hello You Sporty San Diego Dwellers! 🏄🏻‍♂️🚴‍♀️🧘‍♀️🧗

Let’s talk shop (or should we say, *chop*?), about those muscles, bones, and joints of yours that might be starting to feel like they’ve hosted one too many weekend warrior competitions. In honor of National Physical Therapy Month, we’re diving knee-deep (no pun intended) into the lighthearted truth and chucklesome tales of why choosing physical therapy is akin to picking a golden ticket to the ever-elusive fountain of youth and painlessness!

In the dazzling sun-soaked environment of San Diego, where the endless encouragement of the great outdoors nudges us into perpetual motion. Our bodies, while basking in the vitality of activity, whisper the occasional plea for respite. Ah, those whispers! The gentle nudge of lower back pain after a vigorous game of beach volleyball, the subtle throbbing of knee pain post a gloriously victorious soccer match, or that dastardly neck and shoulder pain after what was supposed to be a “friendly” tennis competition!


Pause! 🛑 Let’s Crunch Some Crispy Stats, Shall We? 📊

Research alludes that musculoskeletal problems, notably lower back pain, has a sneaky prevalence among adults, with an astonishing 80% of the global population experiencing it at some point. Add to that, shoulder pain affecting a whopping 18-26% of adults, and the (not-so-sweet) knee pain cherry on top, impacting 20% of adults.

Did you know, the bittersweet reality of our biological clocks ticking away, is that as early as age 30, our muscles can start subtly waving goodbye, degenerating at a rate of 3-8% per decade? But wait, isn’t 30 the new 20? (Spoiler Alert: Your muscles didn’t get the memo!).


Let’s Marinate in a Solution, Instead of Our Own Sweat 💡🍲
