Leading Orange County Physical Therapy Clinic Helps Patients Commit to New Year's Resolutions with Targeted Exercise Regimen and Unconditional Support
COSTA MESA, Calif. - Dec. 5, 2016 - PRLog -- Ann Steinfeld Physical Therapy - a leading Orange County, Calif. physical therapy practice specializing in sports medicine, orthopedics, geriatrics and neurology – is on a mission to increase the quality of life for those who suffer from pain, with the gift of better health as the clinic's primary goal. Whether from a new or old injury, post surgical or occupational, pain—particularly in the lower back—causes more than physical discomfort; it affects emotions and can increase stress and trigger depression, especially during the holidays. In fact, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) estimates that 80 percent of American adults will experience low back pain at some point in their lifetimes, citing it as the most common cause of job-related disability and a leading contributor to missed work days.
"Invariably, feeling good and hoping for better health ranks near the top of many New Year's resolution lists," says Ann Steinfeld, the clinic's founder and CEO. "Most people, however, are unaware that pain originating from the neck and back not only limits mobility but also reduces happiness. Many are also unaware that a just a few targeted exercises—repeated with diligence over an extended period of time—can significantly reduce or eliminate that pain altogether."
Though no one is immune from pain, there are factors that come into play such as age, poor physical fitness, genetics, weight and alcohol and tobacco use, increasing risk—especially when the back is involved. One of the best ways to ensure or restore a strong back is to maintain a healthy weight, a vitamin- and mineral-rich diet, and an exercise regimen prescribed by a trained and experienced physical therapist who can create a plan to correct misaligned posture and movements and increase activity levels, all of which can lead to a healthier, happier life.
"While a physical therapist can certainly help alleviate pain, patients must also resolve to make changes, beginning with a commitment to doing the recommended exercises," Steinfeld adds. "That's why we work hard at helping people find their motivation and stay on the right track. At our clinic, it's as much about providing proper exercise techniques and rehabilitation methods as it is about offering unconditional support to help patients reach their goals, which is truly the best gift we can give them in the coming new year."
