Should I sleep on my side, back or stomach? Watch this short video for helpful tips and sleeping advice.

Tip of the Month
"Waking up stiff and sore in the morning? Try spending 10-15 minutes stretching each night just before you go to bed. If this doesn't help after a week or two, consider the possibility that your mattress may be contributing to your problems."

Giving Back This Holiday Season
AngelsPlease join Dresher Physical Therapy in giving back to the community this holiday season! We will be collecting new pairs of men’s and women’s socks for Angels in Motion. AIM is a local charity which distributes these socks to the homeless in Philadelphia. As the cold months approach there is a big need. Started by Carol Rostucher, the nonprofit works to de-stigmatize the disease of addiction through a variety of programs and by providing “blessing bags” which contain food, snacks, clothing, hygiene products and resource information to obtain help. More information can be found and financial donations can be made through their website, www.aimangelsinmotion.org
Collection boxes for socks will be at both our Ft. Washington and Blue Bell clinics Nov 1 - Dec 21.
Thank you in advance for your generosity!

I Have a What ???
by Pam White, PT, DPT

Bursitis: A bursa is a fluid-filled sac that prevents muscles or tendons from rubbing on bony prominences. BursaWe have bursa in various parts of our bodies including the hip, knee, elbow, and shoulder. Bursitis is inflammation of a bursa and is usually caused by an overuse injury.

Frozen shoulder: Frozen shoulder, also called adhesive capsulitis, is a condition that causes loss of range of motion and pain in the shoulder. Frozen shoulder is caused when the capsule which surrounds the joint (like a Saran wrap covering) becomes inflamed and scars down. What starts the process of a frozen shoulder is often unknown. Patients with diabetes are more at risk.

Shoulder impingement: Shoulder impingement syndrome is a condition where the tendons of the rotator cuff muscles become inflamed where they pass through the subacromial space, or space below the acromion. This can cause loss of range of motion, pain especially with overhead activity, and weakness in the shoulder.Tendon

Rotator cuff tear: The rotator cuff is a group of four muscles that surround the shoulder joint and whose goal is to keep your upper arm bone, or humerus, stable in its socket. There are two types of rotator cuff tears, a partial tear or a complete tear. A partial tear is when one of the tendons become frayed or damaged. A complete tear is one that goes all the way through a tendon. Symptoms include shoulder pain and difficulty lifting your arm up.

Having shoulder problems? Call us TODAY so we can evaluate your condition and put you on the road to recovery. Simple exercises may be all you need to improve your pain and restore motion and function!
