Every person experiences Osteoarthritis at different degrees. Some people are more prone to developing it due to genetics, work habits, age, nutrition, past medical history, and activity levels. Osteoarthritis is the wear and tear of the joints. For some individuals, it is a limiting factor to gain muscle strength since lifting 80% of the 1Rep Max could be very painful. BreakingThrough utilizes a state of the art treatment machine, Blood Flow Restriction Training, that allows a patient to develop muscle mass while only having to lift 20-30% of the 1 Rep Max. ESWT is another safe and effective modality utilized by specialists at Breaking Through to treat the condition. At BreakingThrough, our Physical Therapists are certified and trained on this technology that was developed in the military. Are you tired of endless workouts but still can’t get stronger because the pain gets in the way? Make an appointment and get screened to see if you are a good candidate for this amazing technology.
