4 Ways Physical Therapists Manage Pain

Moveforward.com

Physical therapy is among the safe and effective alternatives to opioids recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for the management of most non-cancer related pain.

Whereas opioids only mask the sensation of pain, physical therapists treat pain through movement, hands-on care, exercise, and patient education.

Here’s how physical therapists manage pain:

1. Exercise.

A study following 20,000 people over 11 years found that those who exercised on a regular basis, experienced less pain.

And among those who exercised more than 3 times.

First meniscus transplant successfully performed at Nebraska Medicine

“We all know that organ donors can save lives, but tissue donors increase the quality of life for their recipients, as well.

That’s the story of 18-year-old Kris Kodat. He is ready to start college at the University of Nebraska Omaha in a couple of weeks, but what he’s most excited for is his newly obtained ability to walk around campus pain-free.

 
“It irritated me. Sometimes I couldn’t pay attention in class. When I got the surgery, it just felt a lot better,” Kodat said.

Just under four months ago, Kodat got a meniscal transplant. He was born with less meniscus in his knees than most people, a rare condition. It was made worse after a series of repeat sports injuries that started when he was in the sixth grade.”

Special Feature: Complete Game

A story of great strength, resilience and determination. A special feature on Collin Lefeber fulfilling his childhood dream to play college baseball after overcoming a surprising hurdle… 

We interviewed our Complete Game athlete Collin Lefeber and his father, Steve. They shared their experience training with our coaches and also talked about Collin’s personal baseball journey. 
 
Collin grew up watching his brothers play baseball and ever since he can remember it was his dream to play ball in college. His father was also a baseball player and his coach for many years. 
 
Collin was born 8 weeks premature and weighed just 2 lbs. Because of this, he had to overcome a lot of obstacles in his life due to his ability to grow. He never let it hinder his arduous work ethic or stop him from achieving his number one goal.
 
He continued to play baseball growing up and was the second baseman for his high school team at Omaha Central. While there, he received NCAA Nebraska All-State honors. Today, he is a student-athlete at Central College Dutch in Pella, Iowa.
 
Collin trained with us for over 18 months. During that time he held our 300-yard shuffle record, was awarded our male summer athlete of the block in 2017. He continued also continued to break his personal records in each of our testing categories every block
 
We will continue to watch his career unfold. We are so proud of his determination and inspiring character as he was truly a pleasure to train and work with! 
 

Q&A. 

Steve, why did you and Collin choose to train at Athletes’ Training Center?
 
When Collin was getting recruited he needed to boost his strength, speed, and body size. We needed a program to help him make all the improvements necessary to help him reach his goal to play ball in college. Collin had heard about Athletes’ Training Center through a connection at school, so we decided to give it a try. 
Collin what were your goals training with us, and do you feel you have achieved those goals?
 
Yes, I have. I wanted to get stronger and faster and through the tests, we have performed here I could tell the program was working for me. I was hitting balls harder and farther. I was also getting to balls quicker and stealing more bases. The hard work has paid off for me.
 
What would you want to say to anyone who is considering training at Athletes’ Training Center?
 
Every athlete I’ve met in here has been determined to get stronger, faster and just become an overall better athlete for whatever sport they are in. Every session the coaches motivate you to do your best and know when to push your limits. This is a good place to come and get better because all the athletes are serious about it here. 
 
The Complete Game program is specific for baseball and softball players looking to advance the level of their game through sports performance training with a focus on injury reduction.
