This is long overdue.

Thank you!!!

Thank you for all your positive comments and prayers for our family with the recent passing of my father John.  We are all doing really well.  I feel incredibly blessed to have had him as my father. What an incredible life he lived.  He loved serving people and had a big heart for others.

Graduation is tomorrow night for Osceola high school seniors.  I have about 15 seniors who come in for wellness adjustments to keep them in tip top shape.  Many of them I’ve coached in either youth baseball or football, and have seen them grow and become fine young adults.  I remember walking Connor down our driveway for his first day of kindergarten.  That sure was a fast 12 years.  He’s off to Montana state this fall so another new chapter for him is about to start.  Congrats to all the seniors!!

This is the time of year when spring sports are starting to wrap up and tournament time starts.  I was down in Ellsworth Tuesday for the conference track meet and OHS girls team won going away.  Congrats to all these kids.  Baseball, golf, soccer, all are having great seasons.  Keep it up and good luck the next few weeks!!

I’ve been seeing a ton of knee patients lately and have been having a lot of success using ARP and cold laser.  The ARP WAVE system is a combination of a proprietary electrical device and carefully designed protocols which target injury at the source, eliminate inflammation and dramatically accelerate the recovery of all soft tissue injury often eliminating the need for surgery .  The cold laser is light therapy which helps speed the healing of soft tissue and works great for a ton of different conditons.  I use it myself pretty much daily for all my little aches and pains and would not practice without it.

Many of the people I’m seeing right now are adding stress to their bodies with spring cleaning, being weekend warriors, and they are having a hard time adapting to the stress put on their body and they get a soft tissue problem and inflammation and pain result.  Most people jump on ibuprofen but there are many studies out their that show that ibuprofen slows down healing.  Ice is still your best anti-inflammatory agent.  Many of you have chroinc soft tissue problems and your biomechanics  have compensation patterns developing and you then can  get have some big time problems which effect your life in what you can do.  The ARP and laser may be very beneficial to help break up scare tissue and get your body to start healing so you can function optimally.  Some of these cases can be tricky depending on your age, length of injury, sleep patterns, medications, diet, etc.  I have to address all of these when you come in.  Then get a plan of action that will get you back to as near normal function as possible and in most cases better function than before.  It takes work and committment on both parts.

Remember, your body needs to move.  If you have an injury a day or two of laying low is about it.  You need to get the body moving.  Get on an anti-inflammtory diet(email me one and I’ll send you one), get proper sleep, and start exercising and you’ll feel so much better.

Thanks to all of you for being patient with me during the past few months with dealing with my dad while he was in the nursing home and his passing.  The hardest part wasn’t his death, but the day in and day out of seeing him suffer.  Thank God he doesn’t have to suffer any longer.

Until next time, get out and enjoy this beautiful weather.  I’ve finally put the storage wax on the ski’s. Dr. E
