Did you know most disc herniations resolve on their own over time?!? Getting diagnosed with a disc herniation or bulge DOES NOT mean it'll last a lifetime. Get #PTfirst!
TWO-THIRDS OF HERNIATED DISCS RESOLVE ON THEIR OWN! - RESULTS FROM A RECENT META-ANALYSIS⠀
Too many people think that once you have a disc herniation (or disc bulge), that you’ve got it for life. Well, a recent meta-analysis has shown that 2/3 of disc bulges spontaneously «heal» on their own! Many of them within a few months too, not years.⠀
Conclusion from the paper: “Because the overall incidence of disc de-herniation is now 66.66% according to our results, conservative treatment may become the first choice of treatment for LDH.”⠀

Let’s take a peak at shoulder mobility! 👀
👉Finding a balance between mobility and stability is important- especially for the most mobile joint in the body!
👉Often times lack of mobility in the shoulder comes from restrictions in the mid spine.
👉Incorporating active movements to both segments of the body helps to gain shoulder mobility
🚨ED utilization - is it really an emergency?🚨
I’ve been discussing the current situation and changes in healthcare utilization with a variety of professionals across various settings. One of the common themes is how the utilization of emergency departments has drastically decreased - to the point where some staff are being sent home multiple times per week.
🤷🏼♀️So what gives? Why is it so slow? Are there really that many fewer emergencies occurring?
❌The answer is no! Decades of ED utilization research has revealed ever growing trend of ED as primary care - using the emergency department for non-emergent/general healthcare. This practice is more common among lower income patients, patients on government-funded healthcare programs, and patients without a primary care provider. The problem with this practice is poor ability to follow up with the treating provider, increased cost of care, and difficulty providing care and resources to truly emergent patients.
💪👩🏼⚕️💰Designating physical therapists as primary care providers for musculoskeletal pain and injury could greatly reduce the burden on emergency departments, allow for prompt care with REAL treatment (not just a boot/brace and RICE instructions), and reduce annual healthcare costs by $30 billion/year.
So next time you tweak your back or roll your ankle, think PT before ED!
