Ann Steinfeld Physical Therapy Offers the Gift of Good Health with Strategies for Reducing Holiday Back Pain and Stress

Leading Orange County Physical Therapy Clinic Helps Clients Commit to New Year's Resolutions with Targeted Exercise Regimen and Unconditional Support

COSTA MESA, CA - December 5, 2016 - 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. In a recent NIH survey, more than a quarter of American adults reported experiencing low back pain within a 3-month period.

"Invariably, feeling good and hoping for better health ranks near or at the top of many New Year's resolution lists," says Ann Steinfeld, the clinic's founder and CEO. "Most men and women, however, are unaware that pain originating from the neck and back, or from tendons in the arms and legs, not only limits mobility but also reduces happiness. Many are also unaware that a just a few key 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 (PT). With aggregate information, a PT can create a plan of care to reduce pain, correct misaligned posture and movements and increase activity levels, all of which can lead to a healthier, happier and longer life.

"It is important to note that while a physical therapist can certainly help patients and alleviate their pain, they must also resolve to make changes, beginning with a commitment to doing the recommended exercises," Steinfeld adds. "That's why I work just as hard to help people find their motivation to make the necessary changes and stay on the right track. In my clinic, it's as much about providing proper exercise techniques and rehabilitation methods as it is about offering unconditional support in helping them reach their personal goals, which is truly the best gift we can give them in the coming new year."
